When you work with us, you'll receive comprehensive financial planning that evolves as your life, goals, and priorities change. We also have the experience to help you with equity grants, stock grant strategies, and making sound financial decisions as you experience career changes.
What You’ll Experience
When you become a Freedom Trail Financial client, here is what you can expect:
We Get to Know You
Our introductory meeting allows us to learn about your current financial situation, what’s important to you, and what you want to improve or change.
We’ll gather data to formulate the basis of your wealth management plan. Our objective analysis includes a review of all your financial statements. Subjective data requires us to dig deeper into your goals, ambitions, and attitude toward risk.
Review Your Current Situation
The third step is to determine where you are in relationship to your goals. We’ll develop strategies that will point out the necessary steps to accomplish your objectives.
Create Your Plan
Then we’ll develop and implement your plan with strategies to help address your financial concerns. We’ll also take ample time to educate you on all the options available so you feel comfortable with your decisions.
Stay on Track
Our team will meet and speak with you regularly to make sure your plan is on target. During those discussions, we can determine whether any adjustments need to be made due to life changes or economic circumstances.
Strategies to Serve Your Needs
When you work with us, you can rely on a disciplined investment approach and strategies that align with your goals, comfort with risk, time frame, and tax implications.
We’ll addresses your investment needs, asset allocation, and the best types of securities for you, taking into consideration your goals and comfort with risk. The objective of asset allocation is to provide you with the risk/return scenario that is most comfortable for you.
It’s important to have a strategy to meet the challenges of an unexpected event or emergency. Risk management is intended to minimize financial and other losses potentially associated with risks to your assets, business, or health. We’ll help you define what risk means to you, implement the right asset protection tools, and plan for potential risks to your business.
Your tax planning process considers the tax implications of individual, investment, or business decisions, usually with the goal of minimizing tax liability. Although decisions are rarely made solely because of their tax impact, you should have a working knowledge of the income or estate tax issues and costs involved.
Your plan will guide you through a process that focuses on issues specific to business owners and shareholders. Business planning coordinates the management of your business throughout its life cycle with risk management, distributions to the owners, and succession planning. We’ll help you mitigate your risk, plan executive compensation, and prepare for your exit from the business.
Together, we'll evaluate your current financial standing and create an accumulation strategy that'll help you achieve your retirement goals. Your plan will address ways to maximize growth and tax-efficient distributions and how to leave assets to the next generation. We’ll review your accounts and distribution planning strategies and design a cash flow plan to help you achieve the retirement you want.
We’ll help you address the most common estate planning issues, including the transfer of wealth, the minimization of transfer taxes, asset protection, and charitable giving. We’ll also coordinate your estate plan with the overall plans for your business (if applicable), investments, insurance, and employee benefits.
