Our Process

The WealthSource planning process is built to give us a deep and meaningful understanding of you, your goals, and your finances. Whether you are planning for a second home, a new adventure, or retirement, we can help you make smart choices — and get there faster.

Introduction

GETTING TO KNOW YOU

Some of the best things in life begin with a human-to-human connection. That is why the first thing we do is schedule a personal conversation.

Discovery

UNDERSTANDING YOUR FINANCIAL NEEDS

Solid financial plans begin with setting the right goals. Are you planning to educate your children, retire, launch a business, care for an aging loved one, buy a rental property, or rebuild your finances after a divorce? Every major life decision comes with rewards, challenges — and planning opportunities. Let our team guide the way.

Data Collection

GATHERING YOUR FINANCIAL INFORMATION

Financial facts form the foundation of a solid plan. But if you are like most people, your financial life may not be in perfect order. That might mean dusty folders, forgotten passwords, missing account statements, perhaps even an orphaned 401(k) account or two. This is why we help you get organized first. Together, we will gather all the details to help ensure that the plan considers every relevant goal, timeline, and resource.

Financial Plan

PUTTING IT ALL TOGETHER

Once we have all the important details, our team of experienced financial planners, investment professionals, and researchers can get to work! The goal is to craft a financial plan and a portfolio that’s personal, comprehensive — and agile enough to handle future surprises.

Execution

DOING THE WORK

The true value of any plan is in its disciplined execution. Whether you need a tax reduction strategy, a rebalanced portfolio, or new estate documents, we begin by defining specific next steps based on urgency and priority. Our goal is to capture time-sensitive opportunities — and to help you make steady progress toward getting your financial life in order.
