Fee-Based Financial Planning

Is Your Financial Plan For You Or For Your Planner?

Tired of working with financial planners who are really just product salespeople? Tired of the financial plans that always seem to miraculously direct you towards the products that the planner has available to sell?

A Fee-Based Financial Planner Creates a Financial Plan For You!

(No Strings Attached)

You should consider working with a Fee-Based Financial Planner if the following applies to you:

  • You want to make your own investment decisions
  • You want a no-pressure financial plan
  • You want to eliminate conflicts of interest
  • You are willing to pay for a bias-free financial plan
  • You want the expertise of a Certified Financial Planner - without the sales pitch
  • You want the choice of paying for a financial plan, or getting a free-financial plan

How Does A Fee-Based Planner Work?

Well we don't speak for everyone, but at First Foundation you have a choice: You can pay for a financial plan (see options below) and receive unbiased advice, or you can receive a free-financial plan when you invest in funds available through First Foundation. The choice is yours! Our Certified Financial Planners are either paid by you, or, if you prefer, they earn commission based on the investments you choose to make. It's completely up to you and you can discuss the pros and cons of each option with your Planner.

What Are My Investment Options?

  • Private Portfolio Management (Minimum investment applies)
  • Robo-advisor access for low-fee, automated index-based investing
  • High-interest savings accounts
  • GICs - Guaranteed Investment Certificates
