EVALUATE CURRENT GOALS AND OBJECTIVES
Working closely with you, we will assess your current financial condition and objectives, as well as your risk tolerance. We will develop a long-term strategy designed to align with your objectives and risk parameters.

DEVELOP AN INVESTMENT PLAN
We will prepare a personalized investment plan, complete with expected rate of return targets, allocation guidelines, liquidity needs, and rebalancing procedures. Ongoing investment decisions are based on the plan, and its appropriateness will be reviewed on a regular basis.

IMPLEMENT PORTFOLIO DESIGN
The Parks-DuMontier Financial Group will recommend specific strategies and investments with which to implement your asset allocation plan. We consider the optimal tax location of each investment if you have tax-deferred and taxable accounts. We also factor in possible capital gains or losses. The execution strategy will depend on a specific asset allocation, as well as liquidity, tax, cost, and other considerations that have been reviewed in the planning process.

MANAGE PORTFOLIO
Once the portfolio design is implemented, we work to help address risk by monitoring the underlying investments and periodically rebalancing to the target asset class weight. Rebalancing occurs on the basis of time, as well as how far markets have moved the portfolio allocation from the target. We utilize portfolio management and rebalancing technologies that allow for the monitoring and oversight of all portfolio holdings and their allocations for the assets we manage.

MEASURE AND REPORT RESULTS
Periodic reviews of needs, circumstances, and requirements are critical to help an investment plan succeed. On a regular basis, we will provide you with a succinct analysis of the performance and risk of your portfolio. You also will receive monthly account statements and transaction confirmations from Truist Investment Services, Inc.
