What is "Fee Only Financial Planning," and why is it important?
Laura A. Seymour is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ practitioner at TorchLight Advisors in Bloomington, Minnesota. TorchLight, a Registered Investment Advisory firm with the state of Minnesota, offers Fee-Only financial planning services, including hourly advice, ongoing retainer service and professional asset management services.
Laura specializes in working with individuals and couples from all walks of life. She helps her clients organize their financial lives and empowers them to make smart decisions. Her focus is on providing professional, objective advice. Much like services provided by a dentist, doctor, attorney or accountant, TorchLight is compensated with a fee for its services rather than through commissions or sales of products.
Laura grew up on a dairy farm near Willmar, Minnesota. She is the eldest of three sisters and learned the importance of planning and preparation early in life. Daily chores on the farm, school and part-time jobs helped Laura develop a strong work ethic and appreciation for educational and experiential opportunities.
Laura graduated Summa Cum Laude from Morningside College in Sioux City, Iowa, with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration. While at Morningside College, she studied abroad in England and spent time traveling throughout Europe. After completing the CFP Board of Standards’ extensive education and experience requirements, Laura has earned the right to use the CFP® marks and adheres to rigorous continuing education requirements.
Prior to founding TorchLight Advisors, Laura worked in two large comprehensive fee-based financial planning firms in Minneapolis. She founded TorchLight in order to offer Fee-Only financial planning to people without the necessity of a minimum account size or income requirement. TorchLight Advisors offers hourly, as-needed advice, projects, annual retainers and investment management services. Laura believes in a holistic approach to financial planning and strives to provide comprehensive and independent advice to her clients.
Laura is a member of The Garrett Planning Network, Inc. a nationwide network of Fee-Only financial planners. She is also an active participant in the Financial Planning Association (FPA). Laura volunteers with the Minnesota FPA chapter and is actively involved in a women’s financial advisor study group. Her other interests include traveling, exercising, reading, spending time with family and friends and golf. Laura encourages balance in life by actively investing in her physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health.
