Fee-Only Financial Advisors Never Earn Commission or Sell Investment Products.

Every financial planner, financial advisor and investment manager on FeeOnlyNetwork.com has been vetted to meet the high standards of the The National Association of Personal Financial Advisor’s (NAPFA) for strict fee-only compensation and ethical obligation.

Fee-Only:

Compensated only by the client without earning commission of any kind for product sales or referrals.

Fiduciary:

Legally sworn and obligated to always place the interest of the client ahead of their own.

Independent:

Not affiliated with any brokerage firm, bank, or insurance company.

“Fee-only advisors have fewer inherent conflicts of interest, as they generally provide more comprehensive advice.”

“The stakes are so high in investing that you should consider fee-only planners. They’ll give you a fixed price up front for their services, regardless of the product they recommend. You won’t have to worry about conflict of interest.”

Kiplinger

“Fee-only financial planners have a fiduciary responsibility to their clients. That requires that they act in their client’s best interest at all times.”

The Motlet Fool logo

“Financial advisors who work on commission have to decide whether to recommend the product that’s right for you or the product that will make them a fat commission. Sadly, many of these financial advisors will end up doing the latter. That’s why a fee-only financial advisor is by far the best choice.”

Financial Advisor Checklist – From the National Association of Personal Financial Planners (NAPFA)

You need a trusted financial advisor, not a sales professional.  Financial professionals from brokerage firms, banks, or insurance companies may focus on selling investment products like specific mutual funds, annuities, and insurance products instead of offering comprehensive financial planning to guide you toward your short and long-term goals.

The Comprehensive Financial Advisor Diagnostic, created by the NAPFA is a thorough questionaire you can use to evaluate a financial advisor. The questions and popular answer key will help you make an informed decision based on the responses a financial advisor provides. If the advisors answers do not follow prudent core values, you may not be engaging the right advisor for you.
