The Day of Your Appointment Things To Do
1. Make sure you know where you are going. Arrive early so you can “get yourself together, take a deep breath”. Do not loiter. If you are too early, stay SECURELY in the general area but not in the bank parking lot!
2. Remember to get in and get the EXCHANGE done, there a lot of other people behind you in line so be thoughtful of their time as well. You will have time for questions at your second appointment with your new Private Banker/Wealth Manager.
3. Be discrete, be professional, and be alert and aware of your surroundings. BREATHE! Seriously consider hiring security to accompany you to your appointment or bring a trusted friend.
4. Collect business cards from everyone or take their name and phone numbers as well as the location of their regular branch office.
5. Read and Sign the NDA. If it is simple and states you cannot tell anyone except your spouse, lawyer, or CPA (These are the people that need to know how you came about your money for tax purposes) how you came about all of your new found wealth, sign it and move forward with your exchange. Be prepared to uphold it! If you break the terms, you could lose your new found wealth. If the NDA is more complex and you are not comfortable with it, simply let them know you would like to explore your options with another banking institution. They may or may not waive the NDA. REMEMBER TO GET A COPY OF THE NDA IF YOU SIGNED IT.
