When you set out in your vehicle on a new journey, what’s the first thing you do? You enter the final destination into your GPS, right? The same should be true for your financial goals. You need a clear roadmap. At Apex Securities and Asset Management, it’s what we do best - helping you develop a plan designed to reach the destination you envision. In fact, that’s why we call it the Envision® Process!
The Envision Process is illustrated as a cyclical wheel. Why? Because the process is ongoing.
Investment planning too often boils down to cookie-cutter investment mixes and generalized guesswork regarding your financial needs. It’s better than nothing, but it’s impersonal and vague. That’s why our Envision process helps you plan your investments around benchmarks and life events that hold real meaning for you. The process can connect you to your investment strategy in a refreshing and personal way. Even better, it can help you answer that most critical of financial questions, “How am I doing?” The Envision process offers you and your financial advisor the tools and technology you need to discuss your life expectations, decide on an appropriate investment strategy, track your progress, and update your approach whenever necessary.
First, we begin with DISCOVERY discussions to get to know you. Next, we run an ANALYSIS – to find out where you are financially, where you want to be, and if there are any gaps in between. If all this makes sense and you wish to move forward, then we’ll offer our specific RECOMMENDATIONS for you based on our analysis…
Next, we’ll IMPLEMENT the strategy and get you set up with access to your accounts…Finally, throughout the life of your plan, we’ll REVIEW it continuously.
You see, life has a way of throwing new opportunities and unexpected events our way. If your life goals change with time or if fluctuating market conditions throw your plan off course, the Envision process offers the flexibility to make adjustments.
