We do not impose a minimum fee for financial planning, which makes our services accessible to almost everyone–individuals and families just starting out, middle income do-it-yourselfers and those nearing or in retirement. Whether in the form of a one-time review, second opinion or ongoing periodic advice, our services are tailored to the unique needs of our clients.
Our Value System:
1. Partner Centric — we will put the interests of our partners above ourselves and maintain a fiduciary role.
2. Integrity — we humbly accept the trust our partners place in us. We understand the foundation of that trust is our integrity. We do not take this lightly and will do what is legally and morally right.
3. Objectivity — we will maintain objectivity through rational honesty and remaining impartial. This is the manner of professional service our partners demand. Advice is based on rational consideration of your particular situation.
4. Professionalism — we strive to provide partners with dignity and respect and to provide advice in services in which we are competent. If we find we do not have the ability to help you, we will help you find other professionals who may assist you. We are not afraid to say, “I don’t know.” We do not find this to be a weakness, rather, a strength. It is the right thing to do.
