How we work


Our Mission

At Forward Financial Partners we provide premier wealth management services, investment strategies and financial information. We are committed to a high standard of integrity, professionalism and work ethic. We lead clients through different market cycles with independent ideas and strategies. Our clients place their financial security in us and we take that responsibility very seriously. At Forward Financial Partners we use modern portfolio theory to help diversify assets. Investment decisions are based on, but not limited to, Ameriprise research and Morningstar. Forward Financial Partners meet monthly to reevaluate portfolios and tactical positions. We believe it is important to be forward thinking in tracking portfolios. We strive to keep internal expenses as low as possible without sacrificing returns. We understand that taxes and fees need to be taken into consideration when trying to increase total return on investments.

Ameriprise Financial and its affiliates do not offer tax or legal advice. Consumers should consult with their tax advisor or attorney regarding their specific situation.

Working with us

Ameriprise financial advisors deliver personalized financial advice to help you achieve your goals, today and tomorrow. Your advisor takes the time to understand what’s truly important to you. Together, they will document your goals, track your progress and make ongoing recommendations to help you diversify your portfolio, and adjust to whatever life brings – both the expected and the unexpected.

Take the first step toward a more confident financial future by setting up an initial conversation.

What to expect from the first meeting

Your first meeting is complimentary and will focus on your financial needs, goals and values. During the conversation, you’ll learn the value of personalized advice, the costs associated with working together and next steps. It’s an opportunity for you to get a sense of what it might be like to work together.

To help your advisor understand your current financial status, it’s helpful to share information on accounts and income. Examples include:

  • Current income and expenses
  • Bank and investment statements
  • Home and real estate
  • 401(k) and IRA accounts
  • Insurance policies

Additionally, consider future financial goals you would like to achieve, including both short- and long-term goals.

Questions to consider before you meet

To prepare for your first meeting, think about your current financial picture and priorities. To help, consider these financial questions:

  • What are your most important financial goals right now?
  • What concerns you most about your finances?
  • Did a recent event cause you to seek advice?
  • What are you looking for from a financial advisor? What are you not receiving currently?

What you’ll receive going forward

Your first meeting is just the beginning of an ongoing relationship and process. When you work with an Ameriprise advisor, you can expect:

  • One-to-one financial advice based on your goals and needs
  • Personalized recommendations for a diversified portfolio, and solutions to protect you from uncertainty
  • Regular meetings to review your goals, progress and investments
  • Anytime access to your investments, and digital tools to help you stay on track

With right advice supported by research and online tools to track your progress, we can help you feel confident, connected and always in control of your financial life.
