We craft your custom financial plan over several strategy meetings using engaging software, detailed analysis, in-depth discussions, and tailored reports.
I offer a complimentary meeting where we get to know each other as you share your goals.
Before the meeting, I ask that you provide details about your financial life and what you want to achieve.
After that, I can show you how we can work together to achieve your goals.
Asset Management is for clients who want to delegate investment decisions in addition to a financial plan.
We work together to determine your investment objectives, risk tolerance, and socially responsible investment themes.
We meet regularly to discuss your investments, progress, and any changes to your circumstances.
As needed, I coordinate with your accountants, estate attorneys, mortgage brokers, and insurance representatives.
The financial planning fee scales with complexity to a maximum of $2,000.
The asset management fee is 1%. I usually waive financial planning fees with managed asset accounts.
