The Colman Knight Integral Wealth Journey
We are so happy to welcome you.
Colman Knight’s clients are varied, and include business owners, couples with children (young and launched), retired, changing careers, recently-widowed, inheritors, and new graduates. Their portfolios and financial issues are also varied, and range from relatively simple to satisfyingly complex. The common thread of our clients is their desire to integrate their money with their lives to create true wealth.
In a carefully-honed structure, full of wisdom and care, we guide clients through the complexity of their finances. For some clients it is hundreds of thousands of dollars, for others we manage many millions of dollars. Our clients—their lives and stories, their hopes and dreams, their challenges and potentials, their children and grandchildren— become part of our lives. Our clients are not ‘the Smith portfolio,’ our clients are known by their first name and the deep aspirations they willingly share.
The First 3-6 Months
What to expect
The following Infographic illustrates the potential flow of meetings in the first three-to-six months of your initial engagement. The flow and timeline is flexible according to your needs. During your introductory call with us, these steps are explained for your clarity and comfort.
Establish Your Integral Wealth Portal
(Your very own financial website)
The Integral Wealth Portal (IWP) is a robust resource for planning, financial tracking and unlimited electronic file storage. It provides a secure method of sharing documents and data between us. Therefore, a first priority in our work together is collecting your important and relevant information.
Please schedule your introductory meeting with Knight and Emily to activate your Integral Wealth Portal (IWP) connections, attend to needed documents, and discuss your communication preferences.
Please expect an email from us titled “Register for Your Financial Website” to begin the process. After creating your log-in and password, your answers to the introductory questions create a useful framework for your site.
Among the tabs within your site, you will see the “Vault,” where documents are stored.
- The “Shared Documents” folder is where you will upload files for us to view. We move these documents out of this folder and organize them in the other folders.
- The “My Private Documents” folder is yours for unlimited, private storage. We cannot view the documents in this folder.
The other folders with the following labels store documents related to our work together:
- Financial Flows – Income, expenses, and personalized financial reports.
- Investment Integrity – Documents pertaining to your investment path.
- Life Legacy – Estate planning documents.
- Practical Protection – Insurance documents.
- Administrative – Agreements, Meeting Notes, Invoices & Legal Disclosures.
- Strategic Stewardship – Interior Discovery.
- Taxes – Organized by year.
Prior to meeting with Knight, you may engage the IWP on your own, connecting bank, credit card, and investment accounts. Step-by-step instructions for how to connect your accounts are linked here: Integral Wealth Portal – Adding Accounts. Other IWP instructional guides are located here: https://colmanknight.com/integral-wealth-portal/. View the Security Brief to confirm your confidence in the security of your data on this website.
For your convenience, several documents are uploaded to your Administrative > Legal Disclosures folder and are linked here:
- Our SEC registration forms ADV Parts 2a, 2b and Form CRS describe our work and how we are compensated. These documents are required by the Securities and Exchange Commission and are provided for your review.
