Why Flat Fee-Only!?

You are probably used to paying a commission for a product, or a percentage to your advisor based on assets they manage.

We believe the fee you pay should be based on how we can help achieve your financial goals, not on the amount of assets you have accumulated.

The “traditional” fee structures inherently have conflicts of interest that typically don’t work in your favor.  For example, if you wanted to buy a vacation home which would require liquidating some of your assets, will the asset-based or commission based advisor truly provide unbiased advice?  Not likely, as that might impact their ongoing compensation.

WE ARE DIFFERENT.  

We provide comprehensive retirement planning, tax optimization and ongoing investment management for one flat fee.  The fee is not based on how much your portfolio is worth!  As a fiduciary financial advisor, we believe the flat fee-only model allows us to provide you with comprehensive advice without conflicts of interest.
