Wealth Management Questions and Answers

  • How are clients selected?  Our firm accepts clients on a case-by-basis according to their needs and their fit with our investment philosophy.
  • Where are assets held?  For your protection and convenience, all assets are held by a nationally-recognized third-party custodian. We evauluate our choice of custodian based on the prices, service, and paper trail. To maintain our independence, we do not enter into any contract (paid or otherwise) or accept any form of payment from any custodian or broker. If your account cannot be transferred to our custodian of choice, we can often work with the current custodian.
  • What other services does the firm offer?  We provide financial planning, tax planning, and preparation, and retirement planning as well as wealth management and investment advisory services. We do not provide insurance or legal services, but can work in tandem with these professionals and refer you to reliable people if you do not already have relations.
  • What is the fee structure?  Our fees for wealth management services are 1% of assets under management each year. Other services are at our hourly rate.
  • Are there any other fees?  A small commission fee is usually charged per transaction by the custodian. We have no control over this fee, as we are not affiliated. Our firm regularly reviews the fees charged by our custodian of choice to determine whether it is still providing the best value to our clients.
  • Where can I find more information on the firm?  We are registered sith the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), and our firm's CRD number is 121666. We encourage you to read our filings by going to their website at http://www.sec.gov. A printed copy of our form ADV can be provided on request if your prefer.
