Fee-Only Compensation and a Fiduciary Role
Solutions provides financial advice, guidance, and education to clients
from all walks of life. The company’s compensation is derived one
hundred percent from clients for services rendered to clients.
Financial Solutions does not receive commissions, sell financial products or charge
fees based upon a percentage of clients' assets or net worth. Fees are determined on an hourly, or fixed fee basis. All fees
are fully disclosed before an engagement begins.

fee-only approach enables us to act in a true
fiduciary capacity, providing straight-forward, unbiased advice; putting the best interests of our clients first at all times.
An Independent Practice with Trusted Affiliations
Solutions is entirely independent. We are not affiliated with
any banks, insurance companies, brokers or other financial institutions.
We are, however, a member of the nation’s two largest, and most trusted fee-only financial
planning networks. They are NAPFA (the National
Association of Professional Financial Advisors), and the Garrett Planning
Network, an international network of fee-only planners specializing in
hourly, as-needed advice. These networks serve as a "brain-trust," and can provide
valuable support when necessary.
An Open-Door Approach to Planning
Solutions requires no income or net worth minimums of its clients. The
company’s unique approach to engagements puts financial planning,
guidance, and education within the reach of individuals and families of
all income levels. Our clients include young families, corporate
employees, business owners, professionals, and many others.
Solutions uses a common-sense approach to develop understandable,
no-nonsense solutions specifically tailored to each client’s short and
long-term financial planning objectives. We believe that financial
planning does not have to be rocket science to be effective....in fact,
simpler is usually better.
