Financial Pathways of Bridgewater, NJ makes the personalized financial advice you need available for a simple hourly fee.

A simple hourly fee for good, honest, financial advice

Financial Pathways’ hourly fee for advice program is one of our most popular service offerings. It doesn’t get any simpler or more straightforward than this. You ask the questions. We give you the answers. No hidden agendas. No sales pitch. No gimmicks. Just good, honest, personalized advice based on your life, your situation, and your needs.

Hourly only financial advisor — How does it work?

Imagine it is as if you had one of those financial talk show hosts all to yourself. Imagine how valuable that advice could be and what a difference it could make in your financial life! This is even better because a) we are actually Certified Financial Planners, not just playing one on TV and b) you won’t be ridiculed or embarrassed in front of a national audience.!

You set the agenda. You can even set a budget. I will take the time to fully understand your situation and concerns. I will then provide you with my very best advice based solely on what I think is best for you in your particular situation. After the meeting I will summarize my recommendations in a brief written report.

Expert financial advice, convenient for you: by phone, online, or in-person

I think it is best to meet in person if we can, but it is not mandatory in this communications age. We can use SKYPE, phone, email or any other method to get the job done. We have clients from outside New Jersey who work with us exclusively by phone and computer, so if in-person is not convenient, let us know. We will gladly accommodate.

How you use the time is up to you!

What does it cost?

Our fee is very reasonable at $195 per hour, and compares favorably to fees charged by those in related professions. Remember, this is an investment in your future! It is not uncommon for our clients to realize direct savings of thousands of dollars through our recommendations. And in every case, the peace of mind that comes with knowing you are on the right financial course is worth far more than the fee you will pay.

Note: If money is tight, we understand. We can work with you to keep your session within a budgeted amount of time!
Advice for non New Jersey residents is limited to non-investment advice, except as permitted by federal and state regulations.
