Plain and Simple. We charge you a fee for our advice and receive no compensation from any other source. Nothing is hidden—we are totally transparent in our costs. While we’re open to meeting with prospective clients who may have an interest in our services, we feel that we can provide the greatest benefit to those who have over $500,000 in investible assets or have complex financial situations.
The financial planning fee is based upon a percentage of Net Worth for billing purposes as articulated in the table below. Fifty-percent (50%) of the planning fee is due to commence the relationship with the remaining balance due upon the completion and delivery of the plan.
There is no obligation to continue our planning relationship; however, over 95% of our Financial Planning clients retain us to help execute their plan through ongoing Investment Management advice.
