How We Strive To Succeed

  • We start with a discovery meeting (which is free) to discuss your current financial situation and your financial goals. This affords us both the opportunity to determine if we are a good fit and if we will work well together.
  • We personalize our approach to your financial independence based on building a deep understanding of what drives you, your risk profile, and your financial goals. We align your investments with your personal goals.
  • We combine deep experience across financial markets and instruments with leading-edge financial technologies.
  • We are watchful and we flex, adjusting to changing market conditions or changes in your financial goals.
  • We maintain fluid communication, meeting both in person (at our office or at your home if circumstances require) and through online conference (using teleconference and screen sharing). We make sure you know where you stand, presenting your progress reports in “plain” English.
  • We assure transparency so that you understand our engagement process. For Project Planning, we work on an hourly basis. For Financial Plans and ongoing planning needs, we work on a flat fee/retainer basis. For Investment Management, we work on either a flat commission or a percentage fee.

About Our Partner, Wealthcare

Established in 1999, Wealthcare Capital Management (Wealthcare) is a very different kind of a financial advisory firm. We pioneered a new way of providing financial life guidance, using Goals-Based Wealth Management. The cornerstone of our patented goals-based investing process is quite simply to help our clients, above all else, to make the most of their life.

We work towards this by helping you understand and identify your most important life goals. And then we align your investments with those goals. Our process guides you through the myriad of changes in your life that will invariably require financial decisions. This is what we refer to as Financial Guidance for Life—helping you pursue your goals, through market fluctuations and changing life circumstances.



Our Process

Wealthcare’s patented process is designed to help you work towards your life goals, while aiming to minimize unnecessary investment risk or needlessly sacrificing your life now.

Our process is dynamic and continual, as is life, and it will guide you through the entirety of your financial life.

MOST IMPORTANTLY, THE WEALTHCARE PROCESS IS YOU- DRIVEN. NOT MARKET DRIVEN. IT’S POWERFULLY WISE. IT’S REFRESHINGLY CLEAR.

A conversation that helps you to visualize your most important life goals

 

Align Your Investments With Your Goals

Do you like to travel? How will you pay for your children’s education? What exactly does “comfortable” retirement look like to you? You’ll cover these topics — and more — during our initial conversation.

We’ll use this conversation as a launching pad for creating your financial life plan, a dynamic financial guidance system that evolves as your circumstances and financial markets change. We will continually monitor your plan against your changing life events and your investment portfolio, keeping the two in sync. Our software runs sophisticated market simulations, designed to monitor, measure and track your progress and report back to you with clarity.

Your Comfort Zone®

You will have confidence in your financial life plan because I will be constantly performing analytics to work towards your financial goals. At Wealthcare, we call this being in the Comfort Zone. The Comfort Zone measures the probability of reaching your financial goals. And it also alerts you if you veer off course.
