RLS Wealth Management
Wealth Management and Advisory Clients
RLS Wealth Management specializes in the creation and implementation of our clients’ financial plan and the corresponding investment management. As a Registered Investment Advisor, RLSWM is compensated on a fee-only basis. This means that we never accept any commissions compensation from outside companies. For Wealth Management and Advisory clients, our only compensation comes directly from them in the form of a fee based on the amount of assets under management.
According to the CFP® Board, the financial planning process is comprised of 6 steps, as follows:
- 1. Establishing and defining the relationship the client wants.
- 2. Gathering data.
- 3. Analyzing and evaluating the client’s financial status.
- 4. Developing and presenting the financial plan recommendations.
- 5. Implementing the financial planning recommendations.
- 6. Monitoring.
Our Wealth Management and Advisory clients can expect a personal and hands-on approach to their financial planning. Because the financial planning process is on-going and ever-changing, regular reviews and meetings will be scheduled out in advance. We like to meet with our clients at minimum on a semi-annual basis; however, we meet with most of our clients 3-4 times a year, depending on their needs and preference.
Our clients’ investment strategies are tailored to their individual needs. We start out with model portfolios based on risk tolerance. Since no two clients are the same, we then tailor the model portfolio to each client’s situation based off of the financial planning analysis, assets held away from RLWM (ie. 401ks), and other individual factors. We also take into consideration investments that clients bring with them in their transition to RLWM–if an existing investment fits, we keep it.
It is important for clients to know that RLS Wealth Management never takes custody of clients’ assets. Client assets are held with a custodian, and RLSWM has the authorization (discretion) to make trades on our clients’ behalf.
