Have Questions About Our Financial Planning Services?

Check out our FAQs to find answers to the most common questions from our clients:

Investment Designers has developed a comprehensive process that works. We take everyone through a full financial plan and discuss all aspects of the plan before we talk about managing your investments. An equal amount of time is devoted to non-investment areas such as taxes, income planning, and Social Security, as is devoted to making sure your investments align with your goals.

Our first meeting is solely about you. It’s important for us to understand what’s on your mind and what’s most important to you. If we mutually decide there is a good fit, we will take the next steps.

The frequency of your meetings with a financial planner will depend on your individual needs and the services provided. We’ve developed a calendar-based service model for clients that desire our wide-ranging financial planning services over the course of a year. Sometimes that means meeting two to four times per year; sometimes it means only once per year.

In our experience, those who hire a financial advisor usually do so because their financial life has gotten more complex and they want more personalized attention given to it. Reasons for hiring an advisor can differ, but can usually be summarized as a lack of time, willingness, or ability to confidently handle their financial matters, so working with an advisor brings them peace of mind.
