We believe that being independent is the only way to provide truly objective and trusted advice. When looking for a wealth management firm, you deserve to know how we operate so you can make an informed decision about working with us. – Jon Ulin, CFP®, CEO
Before you schedule your first meeting we ask that you invest 10 to 15 minutes of your time on a preliminary phone call with our office. This call will allow us to begin to assess how we may be of help to you. We will also be able to determine if there are any special items that you may wish to prepare for our first meeting. Simply send us an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, or call us at (561) 210-7887 and one of our team members will schedule a preliminary phone consultation.
Your initial meeting is designed to provide you with a clear understanding of Ulin & Co., how we work for you, and how we may be of service to you. Most importantly, this meeting is designed to explore your present financial situation and clarify your concerns and what you hope to accomplish through a relationship with our firm.
We encourage you to ask any and all questions about our branch, team, licensing, affiliations, expertise, technology, products, fees and our investment philosophy. In addition, we will demonstrate many of the protocols, services and tools we can use to help you work toward accomplishing your financial goals.
Ulin & Co. utilizes our fee-based Strategic Portfolio Management Program as our core wealth advisory service. Our firm partners with Charles Schwab, Fidelity and Pershing to provide our clients with dynamic service in asset custody and management. If you want to take everything to a much higher level, we offer comprehensive financial planning as a separate fee and advice-based service. We also provide access to a complete selection of brokerage, alternative investments, annuity and insurance products.
We will meet to gather your personal information, complete a risk tolerance profile and to open up your investment accounts with your selected custodian. Once we get started, a Financial Advisor at Ulin & Co. will be designated as your Investment Advisor Representative (IAR) and dedicated account manager. Our firm does not take custody of client assets. We simply advise on your accounts, place trades and request changes on your behalf at your selected broker-dealer.
It typically takes about 7- 10 business days from our initial meeting to open your new accounts at and transfer over your existing business. Most account transfers are wired over exactly as you are currently positioned (with nominal costs) before making any changes. You will gain immediate 24/7 on-line account access to view your account balances, along with related custodian features and check-writing privileges.
Utilizing our Private Wealth Management review and tracking process, we will be able to create a comprehensive wealth program that will allow you to gain control over your investments and finances – while providing us the ability to easily review your progress on a regular basis.
Because your journey is ever-changing, we will provide you with quarterly service meetings, financial newsletters, educational events and weekly updates on our social media sites – to keep you up to date on our market outlook, your results and to answer any of your questions. This ongoing approach to advice, organization and planning allows us to work together to quickly analyze and make the necessary changes to your strategies as your needs change.
Joining Ulin & Co. means establishing a relationship with a firm who addresses your needs and works diligently on your behalf. From generation to generation, we’ve established a reputation for accountability and clarity, and truly treat you like family. You’ll know where your money is and what it’s doing for you. Thank you for considering our firm for your wealth management and planning services.
