Our approach

We believe the definition of financial planning is “the process of determining whether and how an individual can meet life goals through the proper management of financial resources”.

At Smith & Associates, our goal is to help you be proactive to plan for your financial future and independence.

Our practice helps our clients identify and focus on what is truly important to them and their families. We then help them write an action plan, provide financial strategies and look to hold them accountable to doing the things necessary to achieve their desired lifestyle and to make informed financial decisions that are in-line with their goals. This can allow our clients to spend more time doing the things they love while pursuing their financial goals and maintaining the lifestyle they’ve envisioned. We believe our client’s principles and values are at the core of the financial planning process and we strive to help our clients align their actions with their principles, values and goals.

We believe the fundamentals of financial health will never go “out-of-style” and it's our job to help you be in the position to make informed financial decisions that can help you pursue your level of financial independence.

Do you know your tolerance for investment risk?

When it comes to investing, risk and reward go hand in hand. The higher the risk, the higher the potential return, but also the greater the risk of loss.

Risk tolerance refers to your ability to endure market volatility. All investments come with some level of risk so it's important to be aware of how much volatility you can tolerate. How risk tolerant you are is important, because it is one of the basic factors in determining an appropriate investment strategy for you. Your risk tolerance can affect both the types of investments you own and the way you choose to diversify your portfolio.

Read more about risk tolerance and take the 5-question quiz to help you assess your own tolerance for risk. Then contact me to discuss your portfolio and how it meets your needs and risk tolerance.
