As fee-only financial advisors, we are compensated solely from fees paid by our clients and do not accept commissions or compensation from other sources. This fee-only method of compensation provides us with the independence to select the best solutions for our clients.
Annual Fee for Comprehensive Service
The annual fee for our comprehensive financial management service is based on the assets we manage. Our services include the preparation of a comprehensive financial plan, selection and ongoing management of investments, completion of annual meetings to review financial plans and investment portfolios, reporting of investment holdings and performance, and ongoing education on a variety of investment and financial topics. We also provide coordination between tax preparers, estate planning attorneys and insurance providers.
Our fee structure is as follows:
|Portfolio in US Dollars||Rate|
|$0 – $1,000,000||1.00%|
|$1,000,001 – $3,000,000||0.75%|
|$3,000,001 – $5,000,000||0.60%|
|$5,000,001 – $10,000,000||0.50%|
The minimum fee for our service is $10,000 (the fee for $1M of assets under our management). The fee is billed quarterly in arrears. Additional fees may apply to clients needing services beyond those described here; however, these additional fees are not common and are always approved by the client in advance.
We offer a complimentary one hour informational meeting to learn more about you and your financial needs and to answer any questions you may have about us, our services, and our investment philosophy. In looking for a financial advisor, we recommend you consider the following issues:
- Does the advisor's philosophy regarding financial planning and investment management align with your personal philosophy?
- What are the credentials and experience of the advisor and their team members?
- What does a typical financial plan and investment portfolio look like?
- What responsibilities do you have as the client?
