If you are like most people, you want an objective, unbiased financial planner who puts your interests first. Do you think you will get truly objective advice from an advisor who gets paid to sell you products? Fee-Only describes how Picket Fence Financial is compensated by its clients. We do not receive any compensation from commissions, referral fees, or sales quotas. All of our compensation comes from our clients. This ensures our advice is tailored to the needs of our clients, not driven by commissions. Of the 600,000 people who act as financial advisors, only around 2,000 are truly fee-only.
Many financial advisors and planners call themselves fee-based. This doesn’t mean their advice is objective and free from sales pressure. Fee-based should also be called commission based. In fact, many fee-based advisors receive 75% or more of their compensation from commissions.
If you are the kind of person who wants a planner focused on your needs and not commissions or sales quotas, you might want to investigate Picket Fence Financial.
