Frequently Asked Questions

How much does the first meeting cost?
We are happy to meet with you at no charge to discuss your goals and help you determine whether our services are a good fit for your needs. If so, we will develop a plan for next steps. If not, we can introduce you to other experts who might better fit your needs, with no further obligation to us.
How are you paid?

We are paid a small percentage of the assets we manage for you each calendar quarter. The more we manage for you, the lower the percentage paid. We do not receive any compensation from other companies for investments we recommend, so we have no incentive to recommend one investment over another. All costs will be fully disclosed before you invest and can be paid directly from your investment account. If you require extensive financial planning, we may charge a separate fee for this service.

How often will I hear from you?

We strive to meet with each client at least once a year. Some clients prefer to meet as often as once a quarter, depending on the complexity of their situation. We are happy to meet as often as you would like at no additional charge, and we are always available by email or phone. We will send you quarterly performance reports and regular email newsletters to keep you informed on important financial topics. You will also receive monthly reports from the custodian of your account (Charles Schwab), and you will be able to look up your account balance, investment holdings, and transaction history online anytime.
