Why Use a Fee-Only Financial Planner


Investment Advisor

Comprehensive Financial Planning
Wealth Management 

We help families and business owners make smart decisions about their money to achieve the independence and peace of mind they've earned.

We are Fee Only: No commissions or hidden compensation. Ask us the difference between Fee Only and “fee based”.

We are Fiduciary: Placing the client first. Ask us what Fiduciary means, as opposed to the lower standard for sales people: “suitable” advice. We are fiduciary in everything we do, not some of our advice.


Meeting With Alpha

Your safety is paramount.

We're vaccinated but careful for our clients and their families. We can meet in person or continue meeting on zoom as we do with our clients all over the US.

Our first two meetings — at no charge — help you assess your current investment plan and determine whether you need our advice, a different advisor, or are fine on your own.

Discovery Meeting:
We learn about you. You bring documents for us to analyze. We discuss your goals, your money history, your values. Understanding you in order to make the best recommendations for you.

Investment Proposal Meeting:
You learn more about Alpha. We propose an investment portfolio either you or we can implement, and — if needed — an advisory agreement. You take home our proposal and schedule a third meeting if you decide to move forward as a client.

Younger Clients

Everyone can benefit from building a road map to success, but young people are often left out of the process for several reasons:

  • Time – they are busy  building careers and starting families

  • Expense – one more item in an already tight budget

  • Knowledge – not knowing where to start or who might help

Realizing that the sooner, the better, we have developed an approach that is affordable. Our hope is that more young people can get off to a good start so that they can achieve all that is important to them.

Are you ready to start?

Receiving a Second Opinion

Second opinions are sometimes necessary in medicine because a misdiagnosis with our health can have significant consequences. The same is true of our financial well-being. A second opinion can help you determine if your portfolio is properly designed to achieve your goals, and it affords you the opportunity to make necessary changes before it is too late.

A financial second opinion also allows you to ask questions you may have but simply didn't know who to ask.

Receive a thorough, no cost analysis of your portfolio from our team of professionals.
