Thank you for taking time to visit us today. Most
likely you are here to inquire if we are the right independent financial
advisory firm for you. At Arbor Investment Management, LLC, we work with a
limited number of successful individuals, families, and organizations
for whom we can have a substantial positive impact.
you to sit down with us for a private, in-depth Retirement Income
Analysis “Discovery Meeting.” Our Discovery Meeting is designed to
uncover your most important financial goals and values. We accomplish
this by a methodology rarely experienced by financial industry clients
these days; we stop talking and we actively listen. We will take as
much time as necessary to truly understand your financial objectives.
At your Discovery Meeting we will also provide
you with important information about how we manage our client
relationships. This includes information such as how portfolios are
structured, the financial forecasting we perform for our clients,
and how Charles Schwab & Co., the preferred custodian of our
clients’ assets, helps facilitate our relationship.
Shortly after your Discovery meeting we will meet
again for an Investment Plan Meeting which includes the presentation
of your detailed Retirement Income Analysis. This presentation is not
the commonly seen “cookie cutter” worksheets used in the financial
services industry. This presentation will include your personalized
Investment Policy Statement, your Retirement Income Analysis, and
your recommended portfolio composition. The presentation of your
analysis will outline the detailed steps needed to secure the most
appropriate assets to cover the ever-increasing costs of the
independence and dignity you desire in retirement. Please feel free to
inquire about the comprehensive details provided in this analysis.
During the Investment Plan Meeting we will make
every effort to answer all questions you may have. Once the Investment
Plan Meeting is completed we will ask you to take some time at home to
review the Investment Plan we have put together for you. If after full
consideration you wish to implement the investment plan we have built
for you, we will begin the necessary document preparation process to
implement your personalized professional investment plan. Your
Discovery and Investment Plan Meeting, including the Retirement
Income Analysis, are provided free and without any obligation to
provide you an opportunity to learn about how we manage client
relationships and to demonstrate the value we can provide as your
Independent Investment Advisor.
Due to the very high level of service and the
hard work we do for each of our clients, Arbor Investment
Management, LLC requires a minimum initial portfolio value funding of
$250,000. If you are contemplating retirement in the foreseeable
future, or are awaiting other future financial events, talk with
us, we are quite flexible under the right circumstances.
Retirement Income Planning for pre-retiree’s and
retirement income asset management is what I do and what I have done
for over twenty five years. During those years I have
helped hundreds of clients transition into retirement with knowledge,
piece of mind, and confidence. I am not a “be everything to everybody”
broker found in faceless corporations whose names and ownership
continually change. I don’t reach into our financial services toolbox
and always come up holding an insurance policy. I don’t chase the
latest ETF or sector funds with complicated ever-changing asset
allocation strategies that shift with the latest news headlines. I
listen, I plan, and I implement a set of solutions purposefully
designed to meet each client’s unique needs, desires, and tolerance
for risk. As part of your consideration process, I would be pleased
to provide you a resume and references to clients with whom
relationships go back decades.
At Arbor Investment Management, LLC, we pride
ourselves in offering private, personalized portfolio management
services with a fair fee structure based solely on a percentage
of assets under management. We receive no commission revenue
whatsoever. We believe this is crucial to our goal of developing
long-term client relationships based on candid advice, openness,
and mutual benefit.
I can promise you through all the years that we
work together, you will never find another investment advisor who will
care more about you and your family, or who will be more deeply
committed to the realization of your financial goals. I promise to
invest your capital as carefully as I do my own, because I know that
your hopes for your family's future are every bit as sacred to you as
mine are to me.
I commit to tell you the plain, unvarnished truth
at all times, especially when you may not want to hear it. When you ask
me a question the answer to which I don't know, I promise always to say
'I don't know' - and then to move heaven and earth to get you the answer.
If we work together, in that spirit of mutual trust, there's nothing
within reason that we can't accomplish.
