MATRIX360® financial planning services have been developed by the firm to complement and supplement (but never to replace) professional practice standards established by the CFP Board regarding the financial planning process.
Financial planning must be done within a complex matrix—a “set of conditions that provide a system in which something else develops.” (Cambridge Dictionary)
To ignore these conditions is to ignore reality. While perceptions of reality may differ among reasonable minds, clients and their advisors must have a thorough understanding of numerous underlying conditions—facts and well as signals—that may lead to important consequences.
A 360-degree mindset
At the same time, a “swivel head” 360-degree mindset is required. Clients and their advisors must constantly be on the lookout in all directions for changes in these underlying conditions and signals—both in the world and in their own individual relationships with the world and others. When examining underlying conditions and signals, not only levels but rates of change in levels should be considered. How these conditions and signals are interpreted, and how these conditions and signals affect human behavior, may impact clients and The Connemara Group advisors conduct MATRIX360® financial planning services specific to individual household needs and circumstances.
Individual planning considerations may include individual risk tolerance, risk perception, and risk capacity. Personal liquidity and cash flow needs must be examined. Tax considerations and investment time horizons must also be considered in the context of a complex matrix of other external factors.
