Your first visit.

During your no-obligation visit, we’ll take the first step in the process by talking with you about your financial goals and priorities, and explaining what it means to work with a CFP® professional.

Create your customized plan

Once you choose to move forward, your CFP® professional will work with you to create a customized financial plan designed specifically for you.

Put your plan into action.

Now is the time to decide how to put your plan into action. You may choose to implement it yourself, or utilize our knowledge and experience through an ongoing relationship with your CFP® professional who can advise you every step of the way.

Monitor, review and adjust.

Life is full of changes and surprises. If you’ve entrusted us to implement your plan, your CFP® professional will become your financial “doctor.” Our services include providing periodic check-ups and ongoing advice.

Questions? Don’t worry!

It’s never too late to start, and with CFG you are never alone. Our goal is to help you find a path toward financial peace of mind—knowing where you stand financially, where you’re going, and what steps you need to take today to get there.
