Which PlumTree Plan is best for you?
True flat-fee financial planning means that we can provide as much or as little assistance as you’d like.
Looking for assistance with a specific financial goal? We can deliver targeted answers to your questions or a one-time comprehensive financial plan. We’ll still go through the 5 step process so that we’re sure we understand your full financial picture. Then you can implement your plan on your own timeline. (Generally 7 – 12 hours.)
Our Ongoing Planning engagements are designed to help keep you on track with the plan we designed together. We will meet 4 times a year to go over any life events that have come up and financial changes you may have experienced. From there we will advise on your next steps and make sure you have everything you need to execute them.
Ongoing Planning & Processing
If you’d like assistance processing transactions on your account, we can help. If we recommend updates to your account during one of our meetings, we’ll get your express consent and approval for each transaction and then process them for you and provide all confirmation and updated documents for your records.
