Comprehensive Planning Process

Summit Financial Resources’ Planning Process is straightforward, personal and thorough.

It commences with an introductory meeting wherein we will describe our full range of services in detail. An initial discussion of your financial circumstances, goals and objectives will help us understand which of our services is applicable to your personal situation. We will also clearly explain our fee structure and next steps.

Having clearly defined your personal financial goals, we gather all necessary financial information and documents—e.g. wills, trusts, insurance policies and investments information. Our full team then gets to work analyzing the information in order to develop your strategic plan.

We will present the elements and rationale for the proposed plan to you in detail – answering any and all questions you may have. We will confirm to the best of our ability that we have left no stone unturned in formulating your plan before implementing our recommendations. We will work closely with you on an ongoing basis to be sure your plan continues to meet your objectives as your personal circumstances, and the investment and regulatory environments may change.
