Fee Schedule

1. Wealth Fusion (Financial Planning + Investment Management)

For clients with $350,000 or more in Assets Under Management, we offer comprehensive financial planning and investment management together in a service we call ‘Wealth Fusion.’

2. Advice Only Engagements*

The primary determinant of a quoted fee is the complexity of a client’s financial life. Relevant factors include:

  • Number and diversity of income sources and investment holdings

  • Size and location of assets

  • Business Interests

  • Other special situations (refinancing, large inheritance etc.)

  • Your legal and tax residency

We provide advice only engagements in two ways:

  1. Subscription: Subscription financial planning engagements have a minimum 12 month term. Fees range from $250 - $650 per month.

  2. Project: Comprehensive plan fees range from $2,200 - $6,000. Half the fee is due upfront, and the other half at plan delivery. We produce Statements of Advice for specific questions that start at $1,200.

*An advice only engagement does not involve detailed investment specific recommendations. Investment management advice is generally limited to funding levels and appropriate asset allocation. If you’re seeking more detailed and specific investment advice, we recommend reviewing our investment management services.
