Curtiss Smith is a financial advisor because he sees the meaningful impact that highly personalized financial guidance can make. In serving as a long-term partner to his clients, Curtiss not only helps his clients experience a sense of ease, he also develops close relationships with the individuals and families he serves.

His belief in fee-only advice helps him make a dramatic impact in his clients’ retirement and overall financial outcomes. Ever since he started his career in the industry, he’s had a firm stance that individuals should work with a fee-only CFP® professional in order to get the most objective advice by a qualified advisor.

TRANSPARENT FEE-ONLY PRICE
We charge a minimum of $750 for a comprehensive financial plan. For wealth management clients, we charge an all-inclusive fee for managing investment portfolios which covers the cost of investments, the advisor, transactions and ongoing financial planning services. Most clients pay between .5% and 1.5% depending on portfolio size. In a minority of cases an extra expense may apply for mutual funds and ETFs.
OBJECTIVE AND INDEPENDENT
As an independent advisor we are not beholden to one broker dealer or one set of proprietary funds. As a result, we can select from a variety of brokerages and investment alternatives that best fit our clients’ situation. As a fee-only firm we provide services that are not tainted by a hidden agenda to sell financial products paying large commissions. Since we don’t earn commission we can focus exclusively on helping our clients without any conflicts of interest.
FIDUCIARY DUTY TO YOU
As a fee-only firm, we are fiduciaries to our clients. This means our financial planners are legally required to act in your best interest at all times. You may be surprised to learn that this is a much higher standard than many other brokers and advisors are held to. Our fiduciary duty means that you can rely on us to make the best decisions for you.
