01

Discover

We lead the process with questions, and lots of them. Questions that others are often afraid to ask, or have seldom even thought to. Questions centred around what concerns you the most:

  • Your values, goals, ambitions
  • Hopes, fears and motivations
  • Your family, business, community and philanthropic desires

 

We then move to understand the facts of your current situation, including corporate and financial structures, cash flow and tax planning and any other strategies you might employ.

02

Design

Only once there is clarity surrounding the vision for your future and the facts of your current situation do we focus on designing a comprehensive, goals-based financial plan. We do not presuppose what products or solutions might be appropriate.

  • Review what’s possible and examine the what-if scenarios
  • Assess the trade-offs and present the options
  • Ensure flexibility in the design, because we know change is a constant

 

The outcome is a personally-relevant plan, tailored to what’s most important to you and adaptable to shifts that will inevitably occur your life.

03

Act

We wholeheartedly subscribe to the philosophy that “action is the foundational key to all success” – Pablo Picasso

Through a collaborative effort between our team and yours, we facilitate the implementation of your plan in a priority sequence that corresponds to your most pressing needs, including but not limited to:

  • Estate and succession planning, insurance and risk management and structural and cash flow planning
  • Diligent underwriting and negotiation with insurers to secure the best possible policy structure at the ideal premium cost
  • Ensuring your asset allocation is aligned with your vision and the plan
  • Communicating with all the necessary members of the team, including both family members and professional advisors, to help ensure a collective understanding of the plan

 

The result is a plan that comes to life as intended, seamlessly executed in the appropriate timeframe with accuracy and transparency.

04

Monitor

We believe that once a plan is implemented, the most important thing to do is to review it, regularly. It is a common occurrence for us to see plans that have been left on the shelf and are out-of-date, seldom having been reviewed, if ever.

Through regular reviews, we continually ensure the plan maintains its relevance in the face of change (both internal and external) such as;

  • Shifts to your goals and objectives
  • New opportunities for your business or your family
  • Changes to tax laws and/or economic circumstances

 

We know that the measurement of success is defined by the progress made towards your unique vision for your life, family, business and community. Monitoring the plan on a consistent basis allows us to quickly identify and act upon any misalignments, opportunities or risks that might arise as your life changes over time.

“Only the inquiring mind solves problems.”
