Financial Planning

At Godsey & Gibb, we respect the uniqueness of each client’s investment needs and expectations.

We feel that having a financial road map in place is critical to success. We prepare a broad-based financial plan after careful consideration of your current financial condition, and financial goals. The plan will include a statement of your short- and long-term financial objectives, an analysis of both investment and non-investment risks, as well as the tools that are available to manage those risks.

An ongoing commitment is key to the success of any financial plan. We will be available on an ongoing basis to assist you, by answering questions, taking necessary actions and making recommendations regarding financial matters. We will formally review your plan periodically, and make adjustments should any significant changes take place.

Once your plan is in place, we will employ a collaborative approach to implement it. We will work with both our internal wealth management team and your other advisors (CPAs, attorneys, etc.) to work towards your financial goals.
