When You Work with a Fee-Only Fiduciary, You Remain at the Center of Your Investments
As fee-only, fiduciary planners, we’ve taken a fiduciary oath to act in good faith and to always serve in our client’s best interest—placing your interests above our own. Given that we are compensated solely by you, we don’t receive a kickback for selling one investment product over another. This means we identify the most appropriate options for you, not for our gain.
Our Investment Approach:
In-depth discussions help us understand your current situation, income needs, goals, timetables, and risk tolerance and risk capacity. This is usually developed with your financial plan to determine the long-term rate of return needed for your plan to succeed. Only then can we discern the appropriate asset allocation to avoid taking on more risk than necessary to achieve your long-term goals.
We create an investment policy that aligns with your needs and considers your concerns. This dictates the type of portfolio that will be utilized.
We then assemble a portfolio using a variety of diverse asset classes that we have researched, geared toward achieving a reasonable return while minimizing taxes and controlling risk.
We’ll oversee and make changes to the portfolio as your life and plan changes. Just as a smooth-running engine in your car requires occasional tune ups, in our regular review meetings we will discuss possible changes that may be needed to keep your portfolio in tune with your financial plan.
