Typical Fees

We work on a fee-only basis and tell you what to expect upfront. Fee-only means we are paid by you, the client, because we think that’s the best way to ensure that you get completely objective advice. We receive no commissions, trailing fees, incentive fees or any other type of compensation for any product or sevice that we recommend. When the management of your account requires the purchase or sale of securities for which a transaction fee is charged, you will pay that directly to the brokerage firm handling the transaction and not to us. Many of the products we recommend do not have a transaction fee.

There is no charge for the initial consultation, during which we can discuss what services you need and what we can offer. No surprises. No hidden fees. We have two compensation arrangements:

1.  Hourly cost to provide financial planning and investment advice with total estimate in advance.
2.  Flat cost for some projects, based on the complexity. Project costs are quoted in advance.
