Please know that regardless of the various ways we contractually charge for our services, we feel the best way to serve you is in the form of some type of ongoing relationship. Our Hourly and Fixed services can be accessed as one-at-a-time projects, on your terms. Think of us as your financial planner, available as-needed, like your primary care physician or dentist.
Hourly charges are time-based and generally quoted as an estimated project fee range, with the top-end of the fee range representing the maximum project fee.
Fixed charges are based on the scope and complexity of the project and simply quoted as a fixed project fee, instead of an estimated project fee range.
Ongoing charges may be time based, as in the form of an open-ended hourly engagement, in which time is tracked and invoiced periodically, as ongoing financial planning is completed. Or they may be in the form of fixed fees that are paid on a monthly or quarterly recurring basis.
Investment Supervisory Services (ISS) is an ongoing fee specific to investment management, which is based on the dollar amount of assets being managed (sometimes referred to as “Assets Under Management” (AUM)). ISS fees are generally debited directly from the managed accounts on a monthly or quarterly recurring basis.
