The Gestalt Financial Planning Process was created to accomplish the following objectives:
We have strategically designed our process to achieve these goals in a structured and methodical manner. The plan we help you create will grow with your family and provide a framework in which you can make sound financial decisions. Your plan will evolve with changing needs and scenarios.
Obtain a clear and complete picture of your current financial model.
Gain a deeper understanding of what is important to your family.
Identify any roadblocks that may stand in the way of the financial future you envision.
Design and implement a comprehensive financial model based on the unique objectives of your family.
Establish Present Position & Future Goals
This phase is the foundation of the Gestalt Financial Planning Process and will establish your present position against which future progress will be measured. Our efforts will center around getting to know you and your family and establishing short term and long term goals. Phase One includes the following steps.
Data and Discovery
The Gestalt Values and Vision Kickoff
Present Position Report
Design and Implement the Financial Plan*
Once your present position has been established, we'll identify obstacles that could prevent you from reaching your goals and recommend specific actions to help you overcome them. We adopt a collaborative and educational approach, and our aim is to create a strategy that you understand and feel good about.
Evaluation and Analysis of Data
Risk Management Review
"What If..." Testing
Once your plan is established and implemented, we focus on ongoing support and monitoring. Your Gestalt Financial Plan will keep in mind the legacy needs of your family and the "Family Meeting" allows you to prepare your children/heirs on how to continue the plan should should anything happen to you.
