Services and Fees


We will help you define your financial goals and objectives and we will help you write a financial plan to accomplish those goals. We can either prepare a comprehensive plan for you, or we can address specific planning needs. Comprehensive planning typically includes planning for retirement, children's educations, income taxes, life, disability and long term care insurance and investment/portfolio management. If you prefer we can consult with a tax accountant and estate-planning attorney when we write your financial plan.

Financial planning services are billed at $145.00 per hour. We will estimate the number of hours required to complete your plan before we begin. If you have assets under management with us through Schwab Institutional (described below) we will provide financial planning services at no additional fee.
