Our Financial Planning Process

Over the eighteen years Michael J Maynes, CFP® has been in business, we have established a six-step process to pursue success. We hope you’ll join us on that journey:

Establish and Define the Client-Planner Relationship

During this stage, we discuss our role and what we will help you with, as well as your responsibilities as our client. We will agree on the decisions to be made and the time frame of your goals. We define the scope of work before commencing.

Gather Data and Goals

Next, we gather client data and determine your goals and expectations. We will ask about your current financial situation, risk tolerance, and timeframe. We gather all relevant documents.

Analyze Financial Situation

We will analyze your information to assess your current situation and determine what must be done to pursue your goals. Depending on the services requested, this assessment could include analyzing your assets, liabilities and cash flow, current insurance coverage, investments and tax strategies. We determine your strengths, areas of improvement, and vulnerabilities.

Review Our Recommendations

During this stage, we offer financial planning recommendations that address your goals, based on the information you provided. We will review the recommendations with you to help you make informed decisions to help you pursue your goals.

Implement Your Financial Plan

Together we will agree on how recommendations will be carried out. We may carry out the recommendations for you and serve as a "coach, " coordinating the process with other professionals, such as attorneys or CPAs.

Monitor Plan and Portfolio Progress

We monitor and track your progress with strategy meetings, and help you make course corrections to your financial plan along the way
