This is where the real work happens

As a boutique planning firm that is intent on staying small, our advisors limit the number of ongoing financial planning clients to ensure the highest degree of service.

How Ongoing Financial Planning works

  • We work collaboratively with you on all dimensions of your finances
  • Financial planning that is custom-tailored to your unique needs/goals, nothing cookie-cutter
  • Our team implements recommendations and provides ongoing, proactive monitoring

doctors

A doctor’s path towards financial independence is unique from nearly all other professionals. The effects of extensive schooling (i.e. delayed earnings, student debt) typically result in a doctor being a decade or more behind their non-doctor peers. As such, our doctor-specific offering is built into a few tiers

Fee based on service chart [below]

Doctor fees vary by scope of service, complexity, and overall net worth

non-doctors

A quality financial plan is like a good diet; it only works if it is sensible over the long-term and if you STICK WITH IT. Clients that hire us on an ongoing basis have unlimited access to our team and receive proactive planning and in-depth monitoring.
