Explore commonly asked questions about our services and processes. We're here to provide clarity and make your financial planning experience seamless.
What are the fees associated with your advisory services?
Unlike many financial advisors who charge a 1% asset under management fee, we operate on a flat fee advisory model. The annual fee model begins at $5,000, which includes filing personal federal and state tax returns.
How do you ensure the advice you give isn't generic?
We are committed to providing personalized financial advice tailored to each client's individual needs. We first build your financial strategy which includes your concerns and preferences, then we develop the investment strategy to carry out the goals and objectives of the financial plan. Our recommendations are custom, ensuring that we meet your specific financial goals rather than providing a one-size-fits-all approach.
Is there a minimum wealth requirement to engage your service?
We believe that everyone should have access to sound financial advice, hence we do not impose a minimum wealth requirement. However, our services are most beneficial for those with at least $500,000 in assets or $350,000+ in annual income.
What advice and service do you provide someone who is still building wealth?
Individuals looking to accumulate wealth need to integrate multiple facets effectively. It involves strategic investment planning, tax optimization, and comprehensive financial strategy to maximize your wealth accumulation.
How can a business owner or business benefit from your advice?
Cash and treasury management has been shelved since 2008 due to the low interest rate environment, but businesses can now earn +5% on operating cash reserves. We implement a laddered strategy which provides daily liquidity, high rates, and U.S. Department of the Treasury-backed security.
