Financial Life Planning and Investment Management

Fees are calculated as an annual percentage of the assets we manage on your behalf. They are billed at the end of each quarter and set at an annualized rate:

  • Up to $5 million - 0.80%
  • Between $5 million and $10 million - 0.50%
  • Between $10 million to $25 million - 0.25%
  • Above $25 million - 0.20%

A client’s effective management fee is the blended rate based on each tier. For example a client with $7MM under management is billed 0.80% on the first $5MM and 0.50% on the subsequent $2MM for an effective rate of 0.71%.

Let us know what you'd like to discuss and we'll get back to you within 24 hours.
