Integrated, experienced, and with only your family’s interests at a heart, Compass VFO works to build and execute a bespoke and holistic plan to help you achieve your most important dreams.

Our Process

Compass VFO starts with the 2nd Opinion Discovery Service, a comprehensive process to help you determine any gaps in your planning.
  • When you start the 2nd Opinion Discovery Service, we take you through our systematic and proven Wealth Management Consulting Process.
  • We start with the discovery process to get very clear on where you are now, where you want to go and what the gaps are.
  • We will evaluate whether your current financial advisors are taking good care of you. If they are, we’ll recommend that you stay with their current advisors.
  • You will receive a Total Client Profile and a personalized analysis of your current situation.
  • Avoid potentially destructive economic and legal situations
  • Ensure you are benefiting from all possible opportunities

What are you missing?

Meeting 1

We will ask a series of questions to really understand what is most important to you and your family, what you would like to accomplish and what keeps you awake at night. We will determine where you are now, where you want to be and any gaps or obstacles that stand in the way. It’s our chance to get a very clear picture of you and your family so that we can guide you in how best to achieve your most important goals.

Our second meeting will present our recommendations for moving toward reaching your goals, focusing on four key areas of concern:

  • Effective wealth management
  • Wealth succession
  • Wealth protection
  • Charitable giving


Open dialogue enables us to learn about every client’s values and goals while working with them to tailor a plan to help achieve them.
