Flat fee. Full transparency.
A better way for HNW investors to pay for sophisticated financial advice.
We assess an annual fee of $10,000 per year, paid quarterly. One fee covers an entire household, there are no limits on the number of accounts or the size of the portfolio.*
And because we serve as fiduciary, fee-only advisors, we receive no commissions, kick-backs, sales charges, or placement fees. Our responsibility is to you. And only you.
*In especially complex cases, we reserve the right to charge different entities (for example, a family foundation) a separate fee.
How much did you pay your advisor last year?
If you're like most HNW investors, you have no idea.
And it's not your fault.
Traditional Wall Street money managers have mastered the art of cloaking their fees in obfuscation.
Rather than charging you a specific amount of money, they charge you a percentage of the value of your assets. Advisors refer to these assets under management fees (AUM) in terms of "basis points" or "bips," and these seemingly small numbers are destroying your wealth.
Are AUM fees destroying your wealth?
Stop buying your advisor a BMW. Every year.
AUM fees look a lot like taxes.
Fees should reflect value.
For many HNW investors their AUM fees have no relationship to the amount of work their advisor is doing, or the value their advisor is providing.
How do your fees compare?
Traditional money managers are trained to avoid discussing how much money they're charging you. But consider the true costs of those AUM fees - how do yours compare?
Unlock the true value of your wealth.
Even seemingly small AUM fees may steadily erode your wealth over time.
*Chart shows the impact of fees on a $3,000,000 portfolio with an annualized return of 6.5% over a 30 year period. Assumes no contributions or distributions. AUM fees are industry average, ranging from .88% to .69%. Wedmont's fee is inflated at 3% annually for illustrative purposes only. The use of a 6.5% annualized return is in no way indicative of an actual return realized by a client. No guarantee of a return is implied or intended. All investing involves risk.
