What investment services and advice can you provide me?

We offer wealth management services to retail investors, which include financial planning and portfolio management services. We provide periodic advice and reviews regarding your investment goals and objectives, personal balance sheet, tax planning, risk management, retirement, education, cash flow and investment planning. In our portfolio management services, we will continuously monitor your investment accounts over which you provide us with such authority and provide advice. In your investment advisory agreement with us, you give us discretion to determine the investments to buy and sell on your behalf and the authority to select other investment advisers on your behalf, which means we will make the ultimate decision regarding the investments purchased and sold in your account. You may impose reasonable restrictions on our discretionary authority. Any restrictions must be provided to us in writing and accepted by us. We require a minimum initial and ongoing account size for portfolio management services.

We will discuss the following questions with you to help you better understand the relationship you will have with our firm: Given my financial situation, should I choose an investment advisory service? Why or why not? How will you choose investments to recommend to me? What is your relevant experience, including your licenses, education and other qualifications? What do these qualifications mean?

Please refer to our Form ADV, Part 2A Brochure for more detailed information on our services.

What fees will I pay?

We charge fees for our advisory services and those fees vary among the different types of services we offer. We charge a percentage of assets under management for portfolio management services. These fees are assessed on a quarterly basis, in advance. You should be aware that the more assets there are in your account, the more you will pay in fees. This means we have an incentive to encourage you to increase the assets in your account. We also charge hourly and fixed fees for certain services, and fees are due and payable as incurred.

In addition to our fees, you may incur additional fees and costs related to the investments in your account, such as custodian fees, account maintenance fees, transaction costs, surrender charges, wire transfer and electronic fund fees, internal management fees of mutual funds and variable annuities, and other product-related fees such as redemption fees.

You will pay fees and costs whether you make or lose money on your investments. Fees and costs will reduce any amount of money you make on your investments over time. Please make sure you understand what fees and costs you are paying. You should carefully review our Form ADV, Part 2A Brochure to understand the fees and costs you will pay to us.

We will discuss the following question with you to help you better understand the impact of fees and costs on investments: Help me understand how these fees and costs might affect my investments. If I give you $10,000 to invest, how much will go to fees and costs, and how much will be invested for me?”

What are your legal obligations to me when acting as my investment adviser? How else does your firm make money and what conflicts of interest do you have?

When we act as your investment advisor, we have to act in your best interest and not put our interest ahead of yours. At the same time, the way we make money creates some conflicts with your interests. You should understand and ask us about these conflicts because they can affect the investment advice we provide you. Here are some examples to help you understand what this means:

  • We recommend mutual funds whose investment companies provide us with educational information and software that provides information helpful in our investment advice process. This is a conflict because we have an incentive to recommend mutual funds that provide us with these tools.
  • Schwab, Fidelity, and TD Ameritrade make available to us other products and services that benefit us but may not directly benefit the client or its account. These products and services assist us in managing and administering our clients’ accounts. They include investment research, both the custodian’s own and that of third parties. We may use this research to service all or some substantial number of our clients’ accounts, including accounts not maintained at those specific custodians.
  • We are affiliated with Thomas Doll CPA’s P.C., an accounting firm and PensionOne Advisors, Inc., a company who provides design and plan services to pension and profit-sharing plans. We recommend these firms to our clients. We have an incentive to recommend our affiliates to you which is a conflict of interest.

We will discuss the following question with you to help you better understand the conflicts of interest we have: How might your conflicts of interest affect me, and how will you address them?

Our financial professionals receive a salary and discretionary bonus on individual performance.

Do you or your financial professionals have legal or disciplinary history?

You should carefully review our Form ADV, Part 2A Brochure for more detailed information about our conflicts of interest.
