By design and intent, we are and will remain an independent, fee-only Registered Investment Advisor firm, dedicated to advising our clients on how to best manage their wealth – all of their wealth – according to their own cherished goals. We are dedicated to being transparent and caring and fiduciary. With or without any regulatory requirements, this is what we do; it’s who we are. It’s bred in our bone. As the DOL rule begins to (hopefully) improve on the retirement planning advice that all investors receive, we welcome any questions you may have about its impact on your own interests. In the meantime, if you notice other firms mimicking us as a result of the new requirements, you might want to ask them: What took you so long?
