Unlike advisors in larger firms, independent financial advisors operate autonomously, delivering quality financial advice. Certified financial planners (CFPs) with comprehensive certifications can work independently, ensuring high-quality services. Working independently frees them from firm production requirements, commission-based selling, and sales quotas, providing a more transparent view of your financial journey.
When deciding whether to hire a wealth advisor, it’s important to ask yourself these questions:
If the answer to any of these is no, it’s time to hire a trustworthy financial planner to take care of the above and more. We provide objective and independent advice to help you stay aligned with your goals so you know you’re always on the right path.
Registered Portfolio Managers (PM) manage all our clients’ investments on a discretionary basis, with a fiduciary duty to the clients. That means our portfolio managers have a fiduciary duty to act with care, honesty, and good faith, always in the best interest of their clients. Investment decisions, therefore, must be independent and free of bias. This results in a higher level of trust placed in portfolio managers.
As fiduciaries, securities regulation requires the highest level of education and experience in the investment industry.
