Experience the difference it makes to have a knowledgeable advisor who works with you to understand your feelings about money, your future goals and objectives, your tolerance for risk and your time frame. We begin the financial planning process with a thorough conversation of your current situation. From there we tailor a plan specifically suited to your needs.
At Victory Wealth Management we have a disciplined process, dedicated to providing the level of service you and your family deserve. Once we have established a basis for a mutually beneficial relationship and a desire to move forward, together we begin the planning process.
This typically involves an initial series of meetings. Everyone’s situation is unique. Depending on the complexity of your situation we will look to establish an ongoing communication strategy and meeting schedule that meets your needs. We have found that most clients prefer to meet in person at least annually with quarterly reviews as needed.
