Abaris Financial Group strives to enhance the financial peace of mind for individuals and families by providing comprehensive, fee-only financial planning, life planning, coaching and investment management services with professionalism, compassion, creativity and integrity. We believe that financial planning is a team event - we work in concert with our clients and their other advisors to co-create a plan that fulfills our clients' life goals and purpose.
OUR FINANCIAL LIFE PLANNING PROCESS
Step 1: Discovery and Visioning
This initial stage of the financial life planning process involves discovering your vision for your life's goals and purpose as well as reviewing your current financial situation. Common goals include buying a house, educating your children and saving for retirement. We gather your data through questionnaires, visioning exercises, reviewing your financial documents and statements, discussions with your other advisors and our conversations with you.
Step: 2 Data Analysis
We will develop your customized financial life plan based on our analysis of your assets, liabilities, your existing insurance and estate planning documents, all within the context of your individual goals and vision for the future. With this information we will look for ways to improve your current position and achieve your dreams.
Depending on your individual situation, your financial plan may include recommendations for investments, insurance needs, estate planning, education funding, retirement planning, stock option strategies, and tax planning among other areas.
While we may make specific product recommendations, we never earn any compensation from the sale of these products. We have been and always will be solely compensated by you, our client. We feel that this is critical to maintain our objectivity.
Step 3: Presentation
Once we have completed our analysis, we will schedule a meeting to present our recommendations to you. During this meeting, we will review the plan in detail and answer any questions or concerns you have regarding the plan.
Often, after discussing our recommended financial planning strategies with you at length, we will need to refine the plan with your feedback. We then follow-up with a personalized action plan.
Step 4: Implementation and Monitoring
We support you in the implementation of your plan. This may include referrals to insurance professionals, tax specialists and attorneys or working with your existing advisors. On the investment side, we can consult with you about implementating the plan yourself or we can act as a registered investment advisor and implement the investment portion of the plan for you.
Financial planning is a very fluid process. It is important to monitor your plan on a regular basis as your goals and risk tolerance may evolve and both market conditions and tax/estate laws often change.
Our recommendation is that you reassess your plan with us at least annually.

meaning to your life. We then explore how to use your financial resources to
achieve your goals and dreams."
