  • Why should I choose you as my financial advisor? We have the privilege of managing our client's life savings and with that privilege comes great responsibility. Because of this responsibility, we pride ourselves on providing complete transparency, excellent client service, attention to detail and customized investment and financial planning, suited for each of our client's needs. Our clients tell us that we treat them like family and feel we are always looking out for their best interests.
  • What are your qualifications? What is your education background? Three of our team members are Certified Financial Planner" professionals with college degrees, specializing in different aspects of wealth management. To pass the CFP exam requires intense study for a least a year and is the gold standard of qualification in our industry. All of our team members have different prior work experiences - with insurance companies, employee benefit companies, mutual fund companies, and financial advisory firms. That means we harness a huge resource for you when we work on your investments, your retirement plans, employer benefits and tax strategies.
  • How are you compensated? How will I pay for your services? Firstly, we are completely transparent and disclose our fees before you become a client. Most of our compensation is from an assets-under-management fee. This means we charge our clients a small percentage on their investments that we manage, whether those managed investments are held at Raymond James or a client's 401k with their employer. A simple example of this would be charging an annual 1% assets-under-management fee on your investments that we manage. Every quarter, we would bill the client a fourth of 1%. NOTE: For assets over 1 million, we discount our fees accordingly.
  • If you are going to manage my account, will you obtain my permission every time you buy or sell something? It depends on how you designate your client agreement. There are 3 levels of discretion: Full Discretion - you give us full discretion to place trades without prior notification; Limited Discretion - you give us limited discretion based on certain terms; No Discretion - we will not buy or sell without your written permission NOTE: Please know that with all discretion levels, we provide our trade rationale to all clients. no matter their discretion level and will provide you, in a timely manner, complete details of trades.
  • How many clients do you currently manage? We currently manage investment accounts for 160 clients. We provide financial and retirement planning for 100 of our clients.
