Our Process

We truly believe that each investor's situation is unique - that, for example, a young family faces financial decisions that are significantly different than those of a retired couple. At Dawes Wealth Management, we embrace a time-tested process for developing and managing investment plans that are as unique as the clients they serve.

ourprocess
We begin by getting to know you and your family while gathering information about your current circumstances, your future goals, your concerns, and your aspirations. During this phase, we discuss the strategies and services available to help address the specific financial challenges you face.

Depending on your circumstances, your plan might focus on a single objective or require a more complex strategy. Your plan could be as singular as saving for retirement or a child's education, monetizing a concentrated equity position, or establishing a trust to benefit a child with special needs. But, perhaps, you may require a more complex strategy that includes help with positioning and selling your business, then deploying the proceeds, together with other investable assets, to deliver the income you need to retire confidently. Or you may be in need of multiple services, not only selling your business and developing an effective plan for retirement, but establishing a charitable trust to fund your philanthropic desires.

In this phase, the decisions we have made together are put into motion, working with other relevant professionals - your attorney or CPA - as needed to implement effective and efficient strategies. The plan, based on previous steps of the advisory process, factors in your investment horizon as well as the types and levels of risks that are suitable.

This is an ongoing process, in which it's essential to monitor the progress of your investments in the context of your goals and periodically review all relevant information. It may become necessary to adjust the particular components of your plan in light of changing circumstances and evolving objectives. Should economic and financial circumstances warrant, we may also recommend tactical changes to your portfolio - for example, "harvesting" tax losses or taking advantage of emerging opportunities - while still adhering to your long-term goals.
