Frequently Asked Questions

1. Do you sell any financial or investment products like annuities or insurance that make you commission?

No! In fact, I am a “Fee-Only” financial advisor. The term “Fee-Only” (or fee-for-service) refers to how an advisor is compensated. A fee-only advisor is paid directly by their client and does not earn commission of any kind for product sales or referrals. It is the only method of advisor compensation that is transparent, objective, and minimizes conflicts of interest. In addition, a fee-only advisor must act in their client’s best interest as a fiduciary 100% of the time.


2. What does it mean to be a fiduciary?

Under the fiduciary standard, advisors are legally sworn and obligated to always place the best interest of their client ahead of their own. They must disclose any conflicts of interest, and clearly define how they are paid. All advisors at and fiduciaries.
