The Camden Planning Process

Camden Planning employs a consultative process that focuses on understanding and meeting client needs. This process is designed to be goal-oriented and follows a comprehensive, four-step approach:

Step 1: Define Goals And Objectives

We will work together to determine your customized financial strategy:

  • Investment goals
  • Risk tolerance
  • Time horizon
  • Performance expectations
  • Income needs
  • Liquidity requirements
  • Tax consideration¹
  • Current investments

Step 2: Determine Investment Strategy

We identify the most appropriate investment strategy through:

  • Asset allocation²
  • Diversification³
  • Risk/reward characteristics of asset classes
  • Correlation between asset classes

Step 3: Build Portfolio

Next, with your input and approval, Camden Planning will begin building a portfolio of investment vehicles designed to address your specific needs:

  • Access to thousands of no-load, load-waived and institutional mutual funds**
  • Annuities; Both "Fixed" and "Variable**"
  • Unit Investment Trusts
  • Currently-held investments

Step 4: Manage and Monitor Portfolio

Once your investments are in place, the process of managing and monitoring your portfolio begins:

  • Regular meetings and discussions
  • Active, ongoing portfolio reviews
  • Periodic, re-examination of your investment strategy
  • Rebalancing decisions
  • Consolidated, quarterly performance reports
