Our Process

A seamless process for long-term partnership

Wealth management based on informed decision-making, proactive engagement, and a fully integrated plan tailored to your unique life circumstances and goals.

 
Step 1

Discovery

To set us up for success, we will sit down and learn about your life, your financial needs, and what you’re looking for.

As part of this introductory conversation, we will:

  • Learn what’s important to you
  • Uncover your goals and understand your concerns
  • Explore where you are today and where you want be tomorrow

This collaborative discussion lays the groundwork for a long-term partnership anchored in clear communication, strategic goal-setting, and shared purpose.

 

Step 2

Design

We design an initial plan focused on what’s most important to you. This becomes the blueprint for your long-term wealth management strategy.

During this guided decision-making process, we will:

  • Discover the gaps between where you are and where you want to be
  • Evaluate the best options and strategies to move you toward your goals
  • Create a unified plan that integrates investments, insurance, taxes, business, real estate, and risk
  • Refine our strategy based on your feedback
  • Deliver a clear action plan that’s ready to go

Leveraging our expertise to address your top priorities right away enables us to establish a strong foundation for a lifetime of partnership and growth.

 

Step 3

Partnership

Using our fully integrated approach, we do all the heavy lifting to put your plan in motion and start a long-term partnership to keep you on track and moving forward. 

With a strong foundation now firmly in place, we work with you to: 

  • Keep your plan on track with regularly scheduled reviews
  • Coordinate with your other professionals to ensure everything’s aligned
  • Respond to emerging changes in your life
  • Evaluate strategies on an ongoing basis to balance risk, flexibility, and taxes over time and adapt your plan appropriately as your life and goals change
  • Discuss your ideas and concerns as they arise — we’re always here!

Through ongoing collaboration and clear communication, we partner with you to keep your plan on track and unlock your wealth’s potential.

We provide an unparalleled client experience throughout the process — from getting you launched to coordinating everything you need along the way.

Create a life and legacy you love with expert guidance at every step.

Pricing and Fees

Discovery & Plan Design

Your initial Discovery and Plan Design process is a fixed fee that we agree upon in advance. Our plans start at $3500 based on a scope of services that addresses your top priorities. Once we have your plan in place, we gladly roll the cost into your first year of wealth management with us. This is our way of making it as easy as possible to launch our partnership.

Don’t worry, you don’t pay until you’re 100% satisfied with your plan in hand (that’s the Alterra Promise). And if you decide that we’re not the right team to implement your plan on your behalf, there are no hidden costs. We only charge you the Plan Design fee, and we can part ways as friends knowing we’ve set you up for success.

Ongoing Partnership

Your ongoing planning and wealth management are all paid for by a graduated annual fee based on the value of investments we manage.

1.00% on the first $1,000,000
0.75% on the next $1,000,000
0.50% on the next $1,000,000
0.25% $3,000,000-$20,000,000
  $20,000,000+ inquire, determined by services provided

Please note, your comprehensive plan may require additional tax, legal, insurance, or investment services. We’ll discuss these potential costs as part of your fully integrated strategy evaluation and plan design process.

The Alterra Promise

Your Satisfaction is Guaranteed

We know how hard it can be to trust someone with your finances. You’re not sure you’ll like your plan, and although we know that our process works, you don’t. Yet. So, allow us to remove the risk. If you aren’t 100% satisfied with our collaborative roadmap, we’ll waive your plan fee and we can part ways as friends.
