Sound Strategies

Guidance Along Your Journey

 

We treat our clients with respect; their successes and achievements are important to us. We take satisfaction in helping our down-to-earth, honest, hard-working clients find the appropriate route to their financial aspirations.

Our Process

 

Our process is one long-lasting dialogue. It is a years-long discussion as we develop a genuine relationship with you and your family and build your financial plan. It all starts with a conversation.

  • Getting Acquainted

    During our intake interview, we get to know each other. We’ll determine whether we’re a good fit for one another.

  • Setting Goals

    We’ll work together to identify your values and goals. These may be long-term or short-term goals. We can even help you discover those important goals you might not have even envisioned yet.

  • Making Plans

    We’ll design your financial plan and determine appropriate strategies. Then we will meet with you again to review our independent recommendations and make any required adjustments.

  • Monitor and Control

    On an ongoing basis, we continue talking. We monitor your investments and make adjustments as the markets shift or your goals evolve. We aim to meet multiple times a year, and we may meet more often if the need arises.
