The Wealth Creation Process Makes Sense
Wealth creation drives the process that Cain & Osborne Associates maintains throughout your lifetime. You won’t hear trumpets or gongs at the end of each step. Well, maybe you will! As your financial planners, we treat this process as a relationship between you and your investments and your advisor.
Plan Your Trip of a Lifetime
So you’re off to Barbados? How much time did you spend picking the right hotel, researching the sights, shopping for new clothes, and booking your flights? All for a one-week get-away.
Now think of your retirement as a holiday, one that can last decades. Take the time you would spend to plan your holiday and apply it to the time you need to spend planning for your retirement. Then multiply that figure by as many weeks as you’ll be retired! Now that’s planning!
Step 1: Determining Where You Are
During our initial meeting1, we get to know each other to determine whether we’re compatible for a long-term relationship. We talk about where you want to go. We explain the benefits of lifecycle planning, showing what you need to do at each stage of your life to guarantee an income for life.
Step 2: Outlining Where You Want to Go
Part of the financial planning process is to look more fully into your goals and priorities. What do you want to do? Buy a house? Start a business? Retire at 60?
We look more closely at your financial and insurance information to define where you are and what would work best for you.
Step 3: Gathering All the Right Elements
We research what’s needed to give the plan the elements it needs to protect your lifestyle choices throughout your lifetime. We also look at what you need to do to help yourself. That could mean controlling expenses (still want that Ferrari?) or increasing income. No free rides here!
Step 4: Putting the Elements into Place
We design a financial plan that uses your assets and income to create the wealth you need at every stage of your lifecycle. Trust us, it’s the exciting part.
Step 5: Getting It All Working
We’re ready to implement an investment plan: the right funds, the right money instruments, the right insurance, and the right action on your part.
Step 6: Monitoring Your Progress
Once we implement your plan, we constantly monitor it, keeping you involved. You don’t need to subscribe to the Financial Post; we keep on top of financial matters for you. We also help you stay on track with your spending and savings goals (still no Ferrari!).
Step 0: Booking a Free Consultation
