We are committed to transparent fees. We know that our industry is confusing and other advisors don't clearly disclose fees and other costs. We try to be transparent, that's why we disclose our fees upfront.

How We Are Paid

We feel that it is critical for our clients to understand the services they are paying for and how they are paying for them. Our goal is to be as transparent as possible when discussing compensation for our advice, so that we can freely research, recommend and implement strategies without partiality or restrictions.

Your fees will be based on your decision for us to proceed with the following:

  1. Creating your financial plan
  2. Implementing your plan
  3. Providing you with ongoing service

At each stage of the process, all fees will be clearly outlined and agreed with you before we proceed.

The fee charged depends on:
  • The investment needed to complete the service,
  • The degree of complexity and level of expertise required to complete the services,
  • Any risks associated with providing the service.

We separate our investment advice and associated portfolio management from our financial planning services. This allows us to target fees according to your particular and unique needs: investment and/or financial advice.
