COST of Services

Investment Management

Most of my clients hire me for investment management and financial planning. They pay an advisory fee which includes both services. The advisory fee is a percentage of assets under management.

Standard advisory fee tier: 

First $250,000.......1.50%

Next $750,000......1.00%

Next $4,000,000...0.75% 

Over $5,000,000...negotiable 

The annualized fees are calculated and deducted from client accounts on a quarterly basis. See ADV Part 3 / Form CRS for more details. 

Hourly Financial Planning

Some of my clients hire me for an hourly financial planning engagement. They might not have a need for investment management but still want professional guidance and financial planning.


For example, someone might be looking to confirm whether they are on track for retirement. This project could take 4-8 hours, depending on the complexity of the situation, to analyze and make recommendations.

A typical six hour plan, at $250 per hour, would cost $1,500.
