The LifeBridge BluePrint™, a critical component of The Golden Gate Way™, lays out the structure to help get you from where you are now to where you want to be in the future. It includes two "towers" that form the basis of and support for your overall financial plan. Additional components, “cables,” can be added to your plan on an a la carte basis so that your specific needs are met. In depth information on each Tower and Cable is outlined below.
Tower 1: Financial Goal Appraisal
Provides an overview of where you are in relation to your goals and creates a plan of action identifying the steps you need to take as you work toward those goals.
Tower 2: Investment Portfolio Review
Provides an in-depth analysis of how we believe your investments should be allocated based on your responses to the Asset Allocation Questionnaire and your stated financial goals.
Your LifeBridge BluePrint™ will be customized to reflect your unique goals, needs and preferences. These options are the supporting cables of your personalized plan.
