Learn More and Make a Better Decision

From The Wall Street Journal:

Consider that of the roughly 295,000 professionals in the U.S. who offer clients financial advice, fewer than 2% are fee-only advisors who follow a true fiduciary standard that prohibits commissions on products recommended to clients and legally requires the advisers to always put their clients’ interests first.


Financial Advice Professionals



Fee-Only fiduciary financial advisors are legally obligated to put their clients’ financial interests above their own and are 100% removed from the conflict that comes with earning commission or 3rd party payouts of any kind based on their investment recommendations.
