When we ask that simple question, it kicks off a fascinating process of reflecting, dreaming and defining values and aspirations. With our expert guidance, the result becomes a custom strategic plan that creates the context for your financial strategy. It provides the structure for every financial decision you make.
Your plan reflects the combined professional expertise of wealth managers, accountants, and estate attorneys. When it’s in place, with us guiding you through every step of its implementation, you’re going to feel the pressure is off.
What we do for you evolves as you and your life evolve. But the underlying structure and support you receive remain constant. That’s real wealth management.
Our financial planning fees are calculated and charged on a fixed flat fee basis, typically ranging from $2,500 to $6,000 depending on the nature of the services to be provided and the complexity of the client’s circumstances. All fees are agreed upon prior to entering into a contract with any client.
We request a 100% fixed flat fee upon entering into the agreement. However, we will make an exception for younger clients (i.e., those clients who are in their 20s and 30s). Those clients may pay initial set-up fees with the balance due to be paid on a monthly basis or quarterly basis. Advance payment will never exceed $1,200 for work that will not be completed within six months.
We charge annually for our planning service by maintaining your Echo Dashboard and providing proactive advice. Though every client situation is unique, the majority of our wealth management clients who use our investment management service will see a reduction in their planning fee by 30% to 50% in their subsequent year. In addition, we can waive the annual financial planning fees for future years when the investment management fees collected are over $25,000 in the previous twelve months.
Managing your wealth is a very personal subject, one we should discuss in a more personal setting. Your time is valuable.
