Family Wealth Design

®

We believe true wealth is created on purpose, and that it's more than just the accumulation of assets. We want to take time to listen and help you strategically align your wealth with your values, for the primary purpose of enhancing your life experiences and building your lasting legacy. 

Most investment firms will start with step 1 and help you to get an assessment of where you are, but then they move you quickly on the straight path to investment management based on your current circumstances.

We believe there's a higher way to not only manage investments, but also gaining a deep understanding of where you are and where you really desire to go.

When you choose to take the higher way of Family Wealth Design®, we'll discuss your concerns and long-term needs, hidden dreams, and legacy planning. We'll show you various scenarios to ensure you have a clear path to move forward comfortably, and then help you craft a wealth plan to take action. This includes investments, but also advice to help you achieve financial dreams, grow and protect your estate, minimize taxes, and optimize giving. We will help you build a true legacy that goes beyond you. 

More about our steps

STEP 1

The first phase of our planning process is to help organize your finances. We'll identify and assess all the pieces in your financial picture then deliver a detailed report to you.

STEP 2

After the assessment, we perform a gap analysis to determine if you are able to achieve your goals with your current income, assets and investments.  

Our gap analysis will identify potential areas of concern that may prevent you from achieving your financial goals.
