Frequently Asked Questions

Who are your clients?

We work with individuals, 401k and pension plans, trusts, estates,
charitable organizations, corporations, and other business entities. We do not require a minimum investment, rather we are interested in working with those who aim for a successful future and are willing to work toward that goal.

Do you sell any product, receive commissions or get referral fees?

Our core business is financial planning and asset management. Our asset management services are provided to our clients on a fee basis. Financial planning is critical for future success. At this time, we provide many planning services at no additional cost. If more detailed planning is necessary for a particular client we would discuss the additional cost.

If our clients are looking for Insurance products (Life Insurance, Long Term Care, etc.), we would be paid a commission from the company that writes the business.

What is the cost to hire you as an Advisor?

Our primary compensation is paid through asset management fees. They can range from 0.7% to 1.6% depending on the portfolio size. Many of our Financial Planning services and review meetings are provided to our clients at no additional charge.
