Financial Advisory Process Explained (how we address the matters above)
Step 1: Identify your Priorities & Scope of Advice
We need to speak to you to precisely pinpoint your pain point(s) & desired outcome(s) from the advisory you are seeking. This is the fact-finding stage where expectations are being set as we propose how we will conduct the advisory session(s) for you to address the matters you need to resolve.
Step 2: Gather Necessary Information from you
Depending on your scope of advice, this could be in the form of your current investment portfolio statements (investment advisory), details of your existing insurance policies (insurance restructuring advisory), income & spending and asset & liabilities (retirement road-mapping advisory) or tax filings & income statements (tax planning advisory for business owner).
Step 3: Audit & Analyze your Information
We review the information provided, crunch the numbers and do a comprehensive ‘situational analysis’ to correlate the root cause of the issue(s) you are seeing & feeling. We prepare recommendations by putting ourselves in your shoes.
Step 4: Recommend & Explain your Options
During the 1on1 advisory sessions, we explain our findings and go through with you the options you have to address the matters at hand. We advise you on the pros & cons of each options, at the same time getting your feedback to fine tune the solution(s) that is in your best interest.
Step 5: Make & Implement the Best Decision
We may carry out the recommendations or serve as your coach, coordinating the process with you and other professionals such as investment managers or accountants. We may also handle the interaction with solution providers.
Certain scopes of advisory can be a dynamic on-going process that requires continuous monitoring. When needed, we review the actions implemented periodically, to take into account of changes in income, asset values, business or family circumstances.
What Clients Said post 1on1 with CF Lieu (before & after)
New perspectives and information that I never knew or considered, with direct and easy to understand explanations.
Lieu is very humble and respectful of client’s viewpoint despite him having a rich knowledge in the financial planning space!
I don’t look at investment the same way before anymore, having I have much higher clarity on why certain things occur in the investing landscape, relate it back to my personal circumstances before making informed decisions.
Injected much valuable clarity in my retirement nest egg management, with much patience and dedication.
I have no qualms in recommending CF to my relatives and friends who need independent financial advisory.
The road mapping process has shown me that I can still have a sustainable retirement portfolio in place 40-years from now without compromising current lifestyle.
You didn’t use any alienating jargons or complex explanations. Yet, you still able to get your point across.
In more ways than one, you helped me discovered and surfaced the answers to a web of inter-related questions I had ~ answers which I probably already have within myself but weren’t obvious before.
Helped me to demystify a lot of intertwined things I thought were extremely complicated but he managed to break them down into very simple, bite-size, actionable chunks that I could truly understand.
What I really appreciate is that he effortlessly combines the logical and emotional aspect of managing money & investing. Lieu made me felt understood and I felt like I’m talking to a friend.
I’d highly recommend Lieu for unbiased advice if you want your expectations to be exceeded.
There is a big difference between knowing something and doing something about it. So when impartial advice comes from a credible Financial Advisor like CF, it significantly reinforces my earlier beliefs and more importantly, makes me ACT on doing the right thing.
CF is able to instill the right discipline and advice so that we can still be a prudent and safe long term investor. Thanks for your wisdom and for continuously making a positive difference in people’s financial life!
