  1. Gather all relevant information

This step involves an in-depth evaluation of every client’s current financial condition and future potential while striving to uncover unknown financial opportunities and roadblocks.

  1. Define objective and subjective goals

Successful goals are Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, and Tangible. The purpose of this step is to ensure that all financial goals are SMART goals.

  1. Design and draft a formal written financial and estate plan

Written documents help to establish firmly the client's future direction and serve as guides for monitoring the opportunities for changes and adjustments along the way.

  1. Implement strategies

Implementation involves working with CPA's and estate attorneys to ensure legal, tax, risk, and product/service continuity.

  1. Monitor plans

Plans are then monitored through benchmarking progress, while identifying areas of success and opportunities for improvement and growth.

  1. Revise goals and plans as necessary

Plans and goals are revised through analyzing the impact of changes in legislation, tax law, products, services, and client needs.

Due to the fraudulent transfer laws, asset transfers that occur close in proximity to the filing of a lawsuit or bankruptcy can be interpreted by the court as fraudulent transfer. Proper structuring of these assets is imperative. Please seek proper legal and tax advice prior to engaging in the retitling or structuring of any assets.
