Why Fee Only?

Your daily financial decisions and activities impact your total financial well-being. Compass Planning Associates takes the worry out of your financial planning by working closely with you to empower you to control your wealth and your destiny.

We can identify exactly where you are and then help you construct a plan to reach your financial destination. And we can help you stay on track with timely investment advice and guidance on all the other aspects of your financial life. Compass Planning Associates provides comprehensive, fee-only services, so you know your costs from the beginning.

How We Work and Fee Structure

We believe in an interactive, hands-on approach to guiding our clients throughout their financial lives, whether they're enjoying smooth sailing or surviving choppy waters. We will educate you about your financial options and offer you sound advice, so you can effectively manage your wealth.

After developing a plan based on your current financial position and goals, we recommend a follow-up meeting to measure your progress. With the option to schedule additional meetings, it's easy for clients to know exactly where they are along their financial course -- and, with that knowledge, to stay focused on their financial goals.

Our fees are tailored to the level of service you desire. You may only need an occasional hourly meeting to take the pulse on your financial health, or your needs may be more ongoing. We will put together a plan that works best for your short-term objectives and your long-term goals. Our fee-only packages include...

  • Hourly financial advice and support for individuals and businesses -- as our client, you determine the frequency of these meetings

  • Financial check-ups and special projects

  • Annual retainer relationship that includes ongoing financial planning and investment advice, with quarterly meetings
