We provide investment management services on a fee-only (no commissions) basis. Our standard investment advisory fee is based on a percentage of the assets that we manage for you. The percentage begins at 1.0% per year (charged 0.25% quarterly) for the first million dollars of assets with lower percentages on assets over $1 million. Financial planning services are offered only to investment advisory clients and the fee is an additional $1,000 per year, charged $250 per quarter. Client relationships begin at a minimum of $500,000 in investable assets.
