Services for Ongoing Clients
After completion of the initial plan, our semi-annual meetings will provide opportunities to both monitor your progress toward your goals, as well as initiate deeper planning conversations into particular areas. We will serve as an accountability partner to help keep you on track, and address additional issues as they inevitably arise.

Review your investment portfolio for opportunities to harvest gains or losses for tax efficiency
Prepare a detailed tax projection and discuss year end tax planning opportunities

For clients who receive corporate equity compensation, including:
- Restricted Stock (RS) / Restricted Stock Units (RSUs)

We analyze the holdings within the context of your broader portfolio, provide guidelines and strategies for diversification, and advice on the tax implications for doing so.
When applicable, we'll include foreign income and assets in your financial plan, discuss the tax implications of both and opportunities for simplification, and provide guidance around cross-border moves.
Quarterly Portfolio Review
Using portfolio management software, we review your accounts regularly to ensure that the risk remains in line with the high level allocation between equities and bonds designated in your Investment Policy Statement (IPS), reviewed current allocations among asset classes for proper diversification, that we've addressed upcoming cash flow needs, taken advantage of capital gain/loss harvesting opportunities, withdrawn your Required Minimum Distributions, enacted Roth conversion strategies, etc.
