How We Help

What we do

We are independent, fee-only CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNERS™ and tax advisers. We advise high income professionals and business owners on ways to grow and protect their wealth while incorporating tax minimization strategies on a comprehensive basis. We are fiduciaries for our clients. We’ll outline your financial options and explain how each will or won’t help you achieve your goals so you’ll make decisions with clarity and confidence. We work exceptionally hard to make sure you’re glad you decided to hire us.

What we don’t do

We don’t sell insurance. We don’t have a favorite mutual fund firm. We don’t connect you with people who will pay us a kickback or referral fee for an introduction. We don’t invest your money without a plan that you believe in and can follow. We don’t give generic advice based upon boilerplate and rule of thumb solutions. We don’t try to be everything to everyone. We never judge your past experiences or your future dreams. And we will never, ever suggest anything we wouldn’t recommend for our own parents or kids.

Do We or Don’t We?

At FWM, all wealth management services are plan-driven. Just as you wouldn’t write out a prescription or recommend a course of treatment before making a diagnosis, wealth management is not a one-size-fits-all or rule-of-thumb solution. We never make a recommendation without a “diagnosis”, nor do we invest your money without having an intimate understanding of your financial background and concerns so we can develop a plan to help you. Once we agree on a plan of action, we are then able to employ your resources to their best advantage to accomplish your financial objectives.  

If you’re a doctor, you may be wondering what makes us different from the typical financial advisor. You’ve come to the right place to find out!

Whether you’re just around the corner or across the country, FWM has the experience and systems in place to simplify complex financial planning with minimal disruption to your busy schedule. Let’s go from “What if?” to “Why not?”!

Why Fee-Only®

As Fee- Only® planners, we are your fiduciary. This means the only compensation we receive is from you. Think of us as your financial liaison, standing in the gap between you and the array of money questions you face, both small (how to follow a budget) and large (when to retire).Fee- Only® planners are your only reliable source of unbiased, experienced professional advice.

Our goal is simple: to clarify and simplify your financial life so that you can make financial decisions purposefully and live abundantly.
