Working with us

Interview

1. YOU MEET AND INTERVIEW US.

Service professionals, whether they are doctors, attorneys, accountants or financial advisors, are all a bit like icebergs, with 10 percent of their attributes above water and visible for you to see and the remaining 90 percent of their attributes below the surface and invisible to you. Use this interview questionnaire in your adviser search process as you conduct your personal due diligence and dig deeper with more targeted questions during your interview with us and other candidates.

Engagement

2. YOU ENGAGE US.

We begin each engagement by meeting with you to create alignment and develop a clarity of purpose for our services. We will define the scope of our work and our fiduciary responsibilities to you in a written agreement with us that explains how we will help you and how we will manage your investment and retirement accounts using these independent custodians.
