Why Fee Only?
Compass Rose Financial Planning
 
Fee Structure

 

Compass Rose Financial Planning only charges by the hour, or an asset management fee. There are never any up-front fees; You only pay for work that has been completed.

Fee-Only Financial Planners are restricted in the compensation structures they may use. Here are some of the most common.

  • Hourly
  • Asset Under Management – usually a stated percentage
  • Project Fee
  • Annual Retainer

Financial planners who charge by the hour may be your best bet if you need help getting your investment plan up and running and keeping it current long into retirement. Expect to pay $150-$300 per hour for a professional that is a Certified Financial Planner Certificant™. Compass Rose Financial Planning charges $200 per hour.

Note: “Fee-Only” is not “Fee-based”! “Fee-based” advisors not only accept compensation from clients but may receive commissions and fees from third parties, such as mutual funds or insurance companies, when they sell their products. Therein lays the potential conflict of interest.

Additionally, “fee-based” advisors may be restricted to recommend investments in a narrow range of products they have the credentials to sell, rather than provide sound, high-level investment advice.

While you may pay a fee-based advisor less outright compensation than what you'd pay for a Fee-Only advisor, fee-based advisors can earn commission by putting you in certain products, and the commission they earn on some investments may be higher than others. Thus, the advisor may have a financial incentive to favor one product over another.
