Client-Focused Wealth Management

AAACU and Investment Services focus on you and the unique set of financial circumstances you and your family face. Getting to know you and understanding your personal needs allows us to create a customized wealth management strategy aligned with your short- and long-term objectives. By building a lasting, personal relationship with you, we’re able to help you anticipate needs and plan for the future.

Strategies for Your Wealth Management Needs

We help you create a personalized financial strategy based on your lifestyle goals. Using our discovery process, we work with you to build an appropriate plan that supports your objectives, and then monitor it to help you stay on track.

Our Approach to Your Personalized Plan

We use a client-centric process focused on pursuing specific milestones we create together. Our comprehensive, three-step planning process is designed to help identify your needs, implement your strategy, and monitor it to help you stay on course.

  1. Assessing Your Needs and Finances

We begin by asking you to complete a confidential personal profile that will help us gain a deep understanding of your current financial situation and goals.

  1. Preparing Your Plan

 We provide a detailed analysis of your finances, develop a variety of customized strategies, and offer recommendations to address your future needs.

  1. Implementing and Monitoring Your Strategy

Once you select the best approach, we put your personalized plan into action. We then consistently communicate with you, carefully monitoring your portfolio and adjusting when necessary.
