Many financial advisors aren't legally required to act in your best interest. Instead, they only have to do what's suitable for you.
"Big name" brokerage firms like Merrill Lynch and Wells Fargo may sell proprietary products even though they may not be the best product for you. This may create a conflict of interest and could increase your cost.
They receive hidden commissions and third-party payments for selling products in addition to the fees they may charge.
They are generalists often focusing on investing alone with little consideration for your retirement goals, taxes, and income needs.
As a registered investment advisor, our advisors are held to a fiduciary standard legally requiring us to act solely in your best interest.
We don't sell proprietary products and only select investment vehicles from the available universe of securities that are considered best-in-class for our client’s needs.
Our financial advisor fees are simple and straightforward based on a small percentage of your assets under management or a fixed financial planning fee. We never charge commissions.
We specialize in retirement income planning and investment management with special attention to taxes, income, and preserving wealth in retirement.
