We do not charge to meet with clients or prospective clients. We are a fee-only firm and charge a professional fee of a percentage of assets under management.

Financial Planning for Individuals

Our approach is client centered. Our meetings revolve around your family, your stage in life, tolerance for risk, and current financial circumstances. We work with you to find a portfolio which is a good fit for meeting your goals at a level or risk which is appropriate.

Financial Planning for Businesses

We have business clients for whom we manage excess working capital. We also help companies who are not satisfied with their current 401k providers transition to a high quality, low cost plan.
