Hourly Based Planning
With twenty years of experience in financial services we have seen the confusion that people have about how to pay for financial advice. We are replacing the confusion with transparency and better aligning service and value. There is never commissions from product sales so you can feel confident that you are receiving objective, fiduciary advice which is defined in our Fiduciary Oath, which we sign for clients.
For new clients, we charge on an hourly basis to complete a comprehensive financial plan which will provide you with a roadmap for your financial future.* Once the plan is complete you will be billed based on when you need our help. This may be once a year for a checkup, every couple of years or when your circumstances warrant a discussion. It is entirely up to you. If you have accumulated substantial assets or could benefit from ongoing planning advice, an annual retainer could be put in place after the initial plan is completed.
Hourly advice is billed at the firm rate of $190 an hour. We will provide you a firm quote based on your particular needs and the estimated time to complete the initial plan. You can better estimate your cost by clicking on a category below that best describes your situation.

Inquire with us and we can let you know if Start the clock would apply. Start the clock service is billed at the firm rate of $190 / hour in 5 minute increments.
*We have long-standing client relationships that are billed differently than what is described here.
