This is the Future of Financial Planning 

How can you tell the difference between good advice and a sales pitch?  Does your advisor have your needs first in mind – or his own profit margin?  Conflicts of interest abound in the financial business, leaving the public to wonder who they should believe, and who they can trust. 

Since our founding over a decade ago, we at Financial Pathways has had a higher vision for the financial planning profession.  Our vision is one of a truly professional relationship between client and advisor.  A relationship built on trust, and based on the fiduciary ideal that the clients best interest is paramount.  In this environment of mutual trust, financial planning can finally realize its full potential as a powerful tool to help our clients achieve their goals and improve their lives.

This is why we have embraced a fee only model for our practice.  Fee only means we sell no products, accept no commissions, and sign a fiduciary oath which commits us to place our clients’ interests ahead of our own.

Fee Only Advice:  Your Needs Always Come First!

Fiduciary duty (def):  The obligation of a person to put the best interests of another ahead of his or her own.  

It is hard to trust a source that has conflicted loyalties.  Many financial advisors say they provide advice - but also get paid a commission to sell certain product.  Which might leave you wondering: "Is what my advisor tells me good advice? Or is it just a sales pitch?"

Finanal Pathways is one of a small minority of financial advisory firms which operate on a FEE ONLY basis.  Fee Only means we accept no commissions or third party payments.  We don't sell insurance or other financial product. We work solely for you, and your best interest will always be our top priority.
