Our Commitment: To our clients we promise conflict-free, independent and objective advice.
Financial planning is a dynamic process. It is like life: A Journey, not just a Destination.
You have an idea where you want to go. We help provide you with the tools, maps and compass to confidently chart your course.
We work with a variety of financial products and services to create a personal plan to fit your needs and the needs of your family. Together we will create an investment plan that balances your personal values, risk tolerance, and investment objectives. All portfolios and investments are held at third party custodians.
Clients have 24/7 access to accounts online.
Although clients may grant us permission to make trades in their account according to the approved investment plan, we never take custody of client assets. We serve as a fiduciary advisor on every client account meaning we will always do what is in the best interest of the client.
How We Are Paid
Objective planning advice is provided on a flat fee or hourly fee basis. Investment management is based on a percentage of assets under management.
It is our policy to provide financial planning advice to all clients without requiring them to make an up-front commitment to move investable assets to our practice.
Initial meetings are always free. We do make house calls.
