A Fee-Only Registered Investment Advisor
(Most popular) We charge $500 for providing a customized investment and financial planning report tailored to your specific situation. This service is for those who want specific professional recommendations and advice and are willing to go do it with the road map we provide.
INVESTMENT MANAGEMENT: We charge a flat annual investment management fee of $250 per month ($3,000 per year) for accounts up to $1.25 million. A flat rate of 0.24% applies thereafter on accounts up to $4 million. After $4 million in assets fees are negotiable. Our typical client pays us between 0.15% and 0.30% of managed assets annually.
In addition to our fees, weighted average DFA fund expense ratios are generally around 0.30% per year or $3,000 on a $1 million portfolio.
FINANCIAL PLANNING: For certain advanced financial planning cases that require ongoing advice we charge a flat-fee planning retainer of approximately $4,000 - $8,000 ($1,000 to $2,000 per quarter) depending on complexity. An additional $1,000 set up fee also applies the first year. The fee is based on the estimated hours required to provide the planning service at our hourly rate of $250. The majority of the planning work is completed during the first year and subsequent year fees are typically closer to $4,000 than $8,000.
