Conflicts are always present in any service model business. We have built our fee schedule to eliminate as many as possible. If you’re not familiar with the fee-only approach to investment advice and planning, it’s a way to eliminate the conflict of interest that often exists between brokers and their clients. With this approach, we are paid a fee based on the assets under management rather than through commissions on product sales. Many firms charge both AUM and commissions. We only charge on the assets we manage. As a result, our incentive is to provide you with the best possible advice and fulfill our fiduciary duty of doing what’s right for our clients instead of making a commission off selling individual products. This approach ensures your advisor is working in your best interests to utilize the most effective investments for you.
