Will our money last as long as our family needs it?
How can I attempt to avoid unnecessary losses in economic downturns?
How can I benefit when the economy starts to improve?
The thought of changing financial advisors makes me uncomfortable. How do Iknow if my current advisor is the best for me?
You may have had one or several of these reactions as economic downturns have occurred over the years. You might be asking what your next steps should be. Maybe you don’t have a financial advisor, or if you do, you might wonder if your current plan–or advisor–is really the best fit for you.
If you take good care of it, you’re more likely to have a healthy future. Even when you receive guidance from an experienced professional, whether a doctor or financial advisor, you oftentimes benefit from a second opinion. In today’s uncertain economy, a fresh perspective from KWM Wealth Advisory could be the second opinion you seek.

What is the single most important driver of portfolio performance? Data suggests performance is not based on timing the market or even picking the “right” investments. Our belief is that portfolio allocation is by far the most important determinant of portfolio performance.** We call this “portfolio balance.” Having proper balance, based on your unique needs, can help address risk and attempt to take the buy-or-sell guesswork out of financial decisions.
Asset allocation does not ensure a profit or protect against loss.
KWM’s client-centric process is designed to diagnose your portfolio and identify where concentration and gaps may exist, filtering six criteria critical to investment health. We collaborate to manage results and make adjustments as needed, striving to do so in the most economical, tax-efficient manner.
A “second opinion” analysis from KWM is designed to give you a clear understanding of your financial picture. You should have a better foundation from which you feel empowered to take control and make informed decisions.
