Why should I choose you as my financial advisor?

The feedback I have received from my clients is they appreciate the collaborative approach I take, the clarity I provide when it comes to financial matters, and the accessibility they have to me. Every person's situation is different as well as their journey with their finances. My goal is to make an impact on my clients financial life so they can enjoy more things in their day-to-day life as well as what they are planning for in their future.

How are you compensated? How will I pay for your services?

Fee-only. Percentage of assets under management or an annual financial planning retainer fee.

If you are going to manage my account, will you obtain my permission every time you buy or sell something?

Our accounts are managed on a discretionary basis so no permission is needed prior to buy or sell in tax deferred or tax free accounts. In taxable accounts we discuss and strategize any sell that would cause significant taxation. Alway using no cost trades when available.

Will you be the only person working with me?

Generally Yes. In the event we need another specialized professional, for example a CPA that works in our office, they would be in meeting attendance.

Have you ever been charged with any breaches?




WiserAdvisor provides referrals to financial professionals. WiserAdvisor is not a current client of advisor or advisory services. Financial professionals pay cash compensation for these referrals, which creates the incentive for WiserAdvisor to make these referrals, resulting in a conflict of interest.
