Broker Check

A comprehensive financial plan serves as a blueprint for your financial life.  

We will guide you through a discovery process to define your future goals and help you avoid any blind spots. As your fiduciary, we will focus on the biggest drivers of financial success which are behavioral:

  • knowing how much you need to save and doing it
  • avoiding panic selling or chasing last year’s winners

Of course , minimizing investor costs is also critical and the duty of a fiduciary. A plan to do all this covers a lot of topics - risk management (insurance), tax planning, investments, retirement, estate planning, and more.  We can break it down into manageable chunks or take it on all at once according to your preference.

Hourly Advice

Prior to the engagement, we will provide you with a “Not to Exceed” engagement price based on estimated work hours. Our fee is $200 per hour.  As your fee-only advisor that is our only source of income.

Here are some typical situations and estimated costs*:

Annual Update

Annual Update

Annual updates and reviews are critical to the financial planning process. We will review your plan components and update as necessary, including investment allocations and progress toward your goals, with specific recommendations to keep your plan on track. Annual updates include ongoing access and advice on items in-scope for the entire year. The typical fee is approximately half of the fee charged for your original plan or less.

*All price ranges given are a guide. All plans and updates are tailored to your specific needs and it is possible that your pricing may fall above or below the plan range given. Prior to any engagement, specific pricing is fully disclosed and agreed to by all parties.

Not looking for a comprehensive plan?

Maybe you simply want an opinion on the advice that you are already receiving from your current advisor.

Perhaps you have a specific request that is limited in scope and only address one or two specific areas.

We are happy to engage you on a per hour basis to address your specific needs.
