Robert Gerstemeier is a Member of the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors
The National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA) is the country’s leading professional association of Fee-Only financial advisors - highly trained professionals who are committed to working in the best interests of those they serve.
NAPFA members live by three important values:
- To be the beacon for independent, objective financial advice for individuals and families.
- To be the champion of financial services delivered in the public interest.
- To be the standard bearer for the emerging profession of financial planning
Unlike most financial advisory firms, we work on a Fee-Only basis. We receive no commissions or other types of compensation for any investment, insurance, or other financial products we recommend to our clients. We believe financial advisors that are compensated by commissions from product sales have an inherent conflict of interest. As a result, it is difficult for clients to discern if they are truly receiving the most appropriate and unbiased advice. With our Fee-Only structure, our interests will always be aligned with your objectives.
