Understanding you is our first priority.

Using proprietary tools and methods, we engage you in structured conversations to learn about your finances and priorities, your goals and dreams for the future. Understanding you goes beyond merely having you fill out a so-called fact finder or data form. Though gathering facts is an important part of Discovery, we feel it’s just the beginning. To serve you best, we seek a deeper understanding of your values, interests, and concerns – particularly as they relate to your wealth. No form can capture all this. That’s why careful listening is such an important value at Chartered. We document everything you tell us, and review it with you to ensure we’ve heard you – and understood you.

Here's what to expect...

  • An orientation to how Discovery works
  • Delivery of proprietary tools
  • Access to an information-sharing portal
  • Courteous conversations with our Advisors

From our perspective, Discovery is the most important step on the path to wealth management because it forms the basis for everything we do for you.



Next, we begin developing your plan.

After Discovery is completed, our Planning Team gets to work designing a customized strategy aimed at achieving your goals. Our Planning process emphasizes time-honored principles like prudence and risk management. We take into account important factors such as risk tolerance, investment time horizons, and inflation. All of these considerations are synthesized with the unique characteristics of your financial situation and your specific objectives. The result is an initial draft solution which we present and explain to you. Then, based on your input, we continue to develop the strategy until it becomes a plan you can truly call your own.

Here's what to expect...

  • An initial draft strategy based on Discovery
  • A presentation and explanation of draft strategy
  • Revisions of draft strategy based on your input
  • A final written plan

We consider the Planning step complete when your customized strategy is developed to the point where you can wholeheartedly say, “This is my plan.”



Now it’s time to put your plan into action.

We take care of all the administrative details for you – preparing forms, setting up accounts, and facilitating asset movement. We remain engaged with you throughout Implementation. Our Admin staff walks you through the clerical details while our Advisors answer questions about your plan and your investments. Implementation is also the time when you begin following through on any personal commitments you’ve made. Once all the pieces come together, we review your plan with you again to make sure you feel comfortable with how your plan has been implemented.

Here's what to expect...

  • Paperwork prepared by our Admin staff
  • Clerical support from our Admin staff in executing paperwork
  • Advisors available to answer questions about your plan and investments
  • A review of your plan once the Implementation is complete

As we see it, the end of Implementation marks the beginning of your financial future. We’ve helped you build your plan, and put the pieces into place. Now it’s time to live it out. For us, this involves ongoing management of your assets, and regular meetings with you to review the progress of your plan. For you, this means keeping your personal commitments, and calling us anytime you have questions or need assistance with matters concerning your wealth.
