Alex Morrall, AIF®, CFP®, CPFA®
Helping you prioritize and plan for each financial goal on your horizon
Adopt healthy financial habits and thrive in life through personalized systems and strategies.
✔ Fiduciary responsibility ✔ On-call customer service ✔ Proactive support & tracking
I help you pursue your financial goals and manage money so it doesn’t control your life.
Often, when someone meets with me for the first time, they want to know if their current financial situation is aligned with their future goals, and if not, what can they do to get on track?
W H A T W E D O :
Clarify your goals and trajectory.
Coach on behaviors needed to reach goals.
Personalize systems that make savings and security simple, so you can focus on your life.
As your financial advisor, I serve as a counselor, coach, and project manager, pulling together every piece of your financial picture to help you get to where you want to be, when you want to be.
I take a long-term approach to financial planning, and I’ve worked with many of my clients for years, growing with them as they achieve the goals they only hoped possible in our first meeting.
This planning and service is built on a few core beliefs:
- MINDSET. Often, we carry money mindsets with us from childhood into adulthood, without an opportunity to evaluate our thinking about income, spending, and saving. I believe when your values become clear, you can establish systems to responsibly steward your resources and make progress toward what’s most important to you,
- SYSTEMS. My role is to help you construct systems to master your money and be able to do what you want in life.
- HABITS. Our financial situation dictates the decisions we make in every aspect of our life. Therefore, adopting healthy financial behaviors is a key element to thriving in life.
- SERVICE. When you have a money question and you need to phone a friend, I am here to be that friend and provide wisdom when you are facing a tough decision. When you work with me, you can expect me to care more about your financial success outside of anyone in your immediate family.
Outside of my practice, I enjoy fishing, skiing, and spending time with my wife, Sonia, and my retired sled dog, Blaze. I’m also a poet, and I even bought Sonia’s engagement ring using the prize money from a poetry contest.
I studied English at Macalester College, and I remain an avid supporter of the Macalester football program, where I was a defensive lineman in college.
CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ (CFP®)
To receive this designation, you must meet rigorous qualifications for advanced financial planning by meeting high education, experience, and ethical standards. As a CFP Professional, I’m able to take on the role of a fiduciary for my clients and remain committed to acting in their best interest as I deliver holistic financial planning.
Certified Plan Fiduciary Advisor (CPFA)
The CPFA designation focuses on financial planning for retirement, including 401(k)s, 403(b)s, and similar plans. As a CPFA advisor, I can assist you in finding and optimizing suitable resources for planning your golden years.
Accredited Investment Fiduciary (AIF)
The AIF designation is all about ethics and trust. The coursework focuses on following best practices for fiduciary service and balancing business interests against a client-first approach. The course also focuses on good documentation to avoid mismanagement of claims and conflicts of interest.
In this first meeting, I will get to know you and your family along with your priorities, fears, and aspirations. This will serve as the foundation for my financial counsel to you for years to come.
At the second meeting or via email between meetings, my team will gather all the necessary financial documents to gain a full understanding of you and your family’s current financial positioning.
After a thorough analysis of your financial situation, I will create a plan that includes clear, actionable steps in order of priority. Then, we can discuss systems we need to establish so you can achieve each step.
My team and I work with you to execute your financial plan. We will proactively reach out twice a year to catch any significant changes to your situation and adjust your plan as we work through it.
As your go-to financial resource, we are also available to connect any time you have a question or significant changes occur that might impact your plan.
See how our process integrates your personalized Asset-Map® Report.
One of the most important aspects of my process is making sure that I understand you. Helping both of us see the big picture is essential to our ongoing communication and guidance.
We build a custom Asset-Map Report for all of our clients’ households and use it throughout our interactions to make sense of priorities and intentions as well as gaps and areas of improvement.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words. We agree. We start by creating a visual experience that displays your household: who is important to you, what resources will be available—both now and in the future—to use toward your financial goals. The Asset-Map process can help us make more informed decisions about your future.
