Step 01

Family Financial Planning Review and Discovery 

We start by compiling your information and conducting an in-depth review of your family’s financial situation.   This includes all aspects of your financial life including personal and corporate tax planning and tax minimization, investment management and structuring, cash flow management, risk management strategies, work/life balance, philanthropic goals, estate/trust planning and long-term family legacy management. We will also outline our financial planning strategies, explain the services we provide and establish our roles and responsibilities.

Step 02

Goal-setting and Family Values/Mission Statement 

In all our years in the investment business, rarely do clients tell us their goals are to simply “have more money”.   Together we help define and prioritize your goals and family aspirations.  By helping our clients articulate the “true purpose” of their wealth and legacy, we can outline and ensure the roadmap for their long-term success and legacy.   

Our clients’ biggest scarcity is not money, it is time.  Ultimately, our goal for each of our client relationships is to deliver the peace of mind to our clients deserve so they can live and fulfil their lifelong passions.
 

Step 03

Family Wealth Management Plan and Advanced Tax Planning 

We conduct an in-depth and very comprehensive analysis of your current financial situation. We develop strategies to address your financial needs and priorities.   Unfortunately, too many financial firms pay lip service to truly integrated tax planning.  At Richie Group, we excel to the top of advanced tax management and structuring.  Our concentrated focus on integrated tax planning and tax minimization better position our clients future irrespective of stock market direction.

In addition to advanced tax planning, investment management and portfolio risk reduction, cash flow and debt management, how to best get money out of their corporations tax efficiently, education planning, family trusts, retirement planning, succession planning how best to sell/exit your practice, philanthropic goals, prudent use of leverage, estate planning and family legacies are all common areas we implement in our clients’ Family Wealth Management Plan.
 

Step 04

Family wealth management plan presentation and implementation.

Over the years, we have seen many fancy, expensive and sophisticated financial plans collect dust on someone’s shelf.   A financial plan (or any plan for that matter) is not worth the paper it is written on unless it is successfully implemented.  This is Richie Group rise to the very top.  From concept to design to implementation, we quarterback and execute our clients financial strategies to ensure their long-term successful outcomes.

Our clients’ biggest scarcity is time. By shifting the responsibility of implementation from our clients to us, we become accountable for our clients meeting and exceeding their goals.  What gets measured, gets done.

We present and explain all of our recommendations, address any questions you or any of your other advisors (accountants, lawyers, etc,) may have and begin the process of implementation of your plan.
 

Step 05

Asset allocation and risk management

Each client situation is unique.  Their hopes, dreams, fears and family dynamics.   That’s why we analyze and assess each clients’ comfort with risk/volatility to ensure their wealth grows in a prudent, moderate fashion while removing much of the downside risk.  

We actively monitor and manage all client portfolios so that our clients can sleep well at night.   We truly believe in eat what you cook.  That’s why we invest our money alongside our clients.  Our personal wealth and success is directly aligned with our their wealth and success.
 

Step 06

Estate and Succession Planning 

No family wealth management plan is complete without a fully integrated estate strategy.   Tax minimization, protecting family legacies for kids and grandkids from potential marriage breakdown and others outside risks, reducing probate fees, Family trust and philanthropic legacies are paramount in designing family estate structure.

Step 07

Ongoing review and monitoring

A family wealth management plan is a living document. Life doesn’t stand still, nor does your family, nor should your family wealth management plan. We regularly revisit your progress to make sure that you are meeting and exceeding your short, medium and long term goals.

Tax laws change, economies and markets shift. We take the worry and hassle away for our clients as we continually keep abreast of changes and opportunities to makes timely adjustments for our clients. You have to be nimble in this economic environment.
