Flat Fees Save You Money
Pricing: Comprehensive financial plans that cover all of the topics above start at $1,000. Year-round financial guidance and investment advisory services are available for a flat monthly fee. The fee is based on portfolio size and starts at $150 per month. Standalone investment advisory services are also available.
A New Approach to Fees
Today, most financial planners are paid on commission from selling products, or charge about 1% percent of your investment portfolio value each year. In addition, you may pay another 0.5% – 1.0% in expenses charged by actively managed mutual funds. All in, fees and investment expenses can decrease your investment returns by nearly 2% every year!
We think there’s a better way- flat monthly fees.
Our flat fee model helps ensure that high fees don’t rob your financial future while fairly compensating us for the value we add with our financial planning services. In addition, we advocate low-cost, tax-efficient investing strategies that minimize the expenses associated with your specific investment selections.
Here’s how our flat fees compare to paying 1% of your portfolio value each year:
