Full Service Financial Planning

Who is most appropriately suited for this kind of service? 

Planner Clients are ready to clarify, simplify and organize their financial life.  They see the value of partnering with an experienced Certified Financial Planner™ who takes a holistic approach to defining goals, analyzing options, making informed decisions, and implementing strategies to achieve their financial goals.  

Planner Clients want their questions addressed, financial worries reduced and complexity decreased so that they can focus on what matters most in life.  Planner clients partner with me on a subscription basis to stay informed, access expertise and make adjustments as changes in finances, laws and life occur.  

Services and Pricing:  I manage both your planning and investments for an advisory fee that is a flat annual percentage of the assets I manage (minimum $250,000 of investable assets per household). 

The Comprehensive Financial Life Plan is a one time fee that covers a customized review of the Planner Client's financial situation, goals, and needs and provides specific recommendations.  Discounted fees range from $1,600 - $2,400 depending on complexity. 

Annual planner subscriptions provide ongoing review, advice and management of financial strategies.  Minimum annual fees are:  $1,000.  There are no additional consultation fees.  

Investment/Wealth Management

Who is most appropriately suited for this kind of service? 

Investor Clients seek professional knowledge, expertise and support to align their investment strategy with their financial goals.  They see the value in partnering with an experienced Advisor to design, implement and manage an investment strategy, including investment research, analysis and selection.  

Investor Clients view professional management as a way to accomplish investment objectives while freeing up valued personal time.  Investor Clients experience support and communication as it relates to investment management.  Important to this process is a qualitative discussion regarding client risk parameters.  

Services and Pricing:  I charge an advisory fee that is a flat annual percentage of those assets.  (minimum $250,000 of investable assets per household).  A Comprehensive Financial Life Plan can be added at a discounted rate of $1,800-$2,700 depending on complexity.

Services are a la carte.  We work together on a limited basis, as Situational Clients receive guidance, advice and service related to their specifically defined needs and concerns.  

This is popular with "DIY" investors who may want a second opinion on their portfolios or a one time recommendation for a social security strategy.
