5 Steps: The Liberated Wealth Process®

If you’ve worked with any of our advisors at Centura Wealth, you have most likely heard us talking about the Liberated Wealth® process. 

We believe that it’s our role as stewards to embrace the details of your existing financial situation. This is where the Liberated Wealth® process comes into play. 

In the spirit of transparency, we want to provide information to our clients about our processes and findings. Let’s dive deeper into what the 5 steps of the Liberated Wealth® process look like.

Our tax planning generally starts with your existing baseline. After a comprehensive review, we illustrate and synthesize the complexities of your tax profile into sophisticated options. Our goal is to reduce your tax burden and drive meaningful outcomes for you, your family and friends, and charitable organizations.

Since real estate is often one of the major components of a family’s balance sheet, our expertise in real estate planning is frequently at the forefront of our clients’ minds and needs. 

Our team functions based on 5 main steps. They are as follows:

1. Uncover

First, we pursue holistic discovery by gathering and understanding data; the client’s purpose, path, and professional roster. 

2. Unlock

The next phase is to follow a precise design by analyzing and triangulating existing strategies, establishing a baseline plan, considering “what if” scenarios, and identifying a planning scope.

3. Design

The design element is a core piece of the Liberated Wealth® process. The design element includes a multi-phase action plan, a wealth scorecard, and charting new pathways. 

4. Liberate

This step involves understanding purposeful deployment. This includes implementation and advancement with plan implementation, coordination of professionals, portfolio implementation, and scorecard reporting.

5. Steward

The final step of the Liberated Wealth® process is to monitor and pivot through purposeful deployment. This includes plan monitoring, timely recalibration, and life events reset. 

This is a detailed explanation of what a process can look like for a client. It’s important to understand what the short and long-term goals are for your wealth management and understanding your advisor's process is the first step to achieving that goal. 

All of these steps revolve around the importance of predicting and planning for the future. Let’s take a closer look into how planning is implemented into the Liberated Wealth® process.
