Fiduciary, Independent, Fee Only Financial Advisors
What is a "Fee Only Financial Advisor". We serve Minneapolis, Saint Paul and Rochester areas.
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 we know to be most suitable and efficient for our client’s needs.
Our financial advisor fees are simple and straightforward based on a predetermined 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.
We are only compensated by our clients, not from insurance companies or brokers. Personal care and services are the hallmark of UAK Diversified, not some “innovative products” by an insurance company that richly compensates non-fee-only "captivated" advisors.
The fee we charge our clients is commonly called the Asset Under Management (AUM) fee. The AUM fee includes ongoing financial planning and investment portfolio management/reviews as well as reviews of other key components of your financial strategy, such as insurance, estate, education funding, tax strategy, etc. We may charge an hourly rate for special projects on business tax and financial strategy consultation when it becomes an unusually large commitment.
The percentage is set as annual, on a quarterly basis in arrears. AUM fees are based on a percentage of the assets under management and are paid in January, April, July and October, pro-rata if applicable. Fees are assessed based on the account asset value(s) on the last business day of the billing period.
