What we do
Independent solutions for you!
Whom Am I Affiliated With?
I am an Investment Adviser Representative at Cambridge Investment Research Advisors, Inc. (a $94B RIA based in Fairfield, IA) and Cambridge Investment Research, Inc. (a broker-dealer with over 3,000 registered representatives nationwide).
What Is My Financial Advisor Experience?
I’ve held an industry securities registration for 25+ years and am subject to SEC and FINRA oversight.
Do We Need to Meet in Person?
The first introductory and fact-finding appointment can be in person or by phone. The next meeting where I provide my recommendations should be in person.
Subsequent meetings where we monitor your progress and investments can be done in-person, by phone, email, or skype or, more likely, a combination of these meeting types.
How Much Do You Charge?
Most clients pay fee-only or an hourly rate. The size and complexity of the client’s wealth management and financial and retirement planning determine that fee.
Some clients pay a commission, mainly those with smaller accounts, i.e., Roth IRAs, some public school teachers with 403b retirement accounts or parents or grandparents setting up a 529 college savings plan.
What Are Some Benefits of Working With an Independent Investment Advisor?
You will understand investment concepts – I talk in familiar language, not financial jargon.
You will make educated investment decisions with the help of my objective, independent research.
I am free to collaborate with you and advise you objectively as we design a written financial plan to address your concerns and establish a path to your goals and dreams.
You will be able to trust and confide in me, as I will understand and prioritize your financial priorities and goals. I will serve you in a relationship.
You will not have to explain your financial history again and again to a series of new faces; I will be here for you.
