3rd Meeting

Initial Consultation: Get-to-know each other

To start a relationship with someone regarding something as personal as finances and retirement savings, Bruce invites his prospective clients to his office for an initial, complimentary consultation.  Bruce listens to his clients describe their goals and desires for the future. Bruce also details how Bruce G. Allen Investments, LLC operates, updates clients and is compensated.

After that initial meeting, if both sides mutually agree that there is a good professional fit, plans are made for a more in-depth conversation.

Second Meeting: Discovery & Identifying Risk Tolerance

During a second meeting, it is time for the client to share a more in-depth look at their financial story.  To do so, the client brings all recent financial statements.  Bruce collects information pertaining to the client’s assets, liabilities, risk tolerance, goals, and financial needs. This conversation is meant to flesh out goals, concerns, and the comfort level a client has when it comes to the risks associated with investing.

3rd Meeting

Bruce spends a lot of time deciphering the risk level of a client with the client. Quite often, a prospective client will say they’re very open to risk but once Bruce engages and listens to them as they share their financial philosophy and history, it may be revealed that risk is not something they’re comfortable with.  To get to that discovery, deeply listening to the client is a must for Bruce. 

Every client varies, but typically, Bruce will recommend a mix of investment products: money markets, stocks, bonds, mutual funds, tax-free bonds, managed accounts, and annuities.  Once Bruce is crystal clear on the goals and objectives of his clients, he will chart out a potential course of action for their review.

Third Meeting: Financial Strategy is Set

Once the client has had the opportunity to review Bruce’s recommendations and discuss the strategy with Bruce and approve the plan, the transfer process begins.  Bruce and his team contact the previous brokerage firm to initiate the transfers. Typically, most assets transfer in-kind within weeks via the Automated Customer Account Transfer (ACAT) system.  This allows broker dealers to enter, review, and settle transfers in a fully automated manner. Certain investments can take a bit longer or require additional paperwork.

How Bruce Keeps You Updated
