What Is a Fee-Based Financial Planner?

If you choose to work with a financial planner, it’s important to understand fee structures before you get started. There are two primary fee structures that financial planners employ: fee-based and fee-only. 

  • Fee-based financial planner. A fee-based financial planner is a financial planner who is paid by fees, such as flat fees or fees that are based on a percentage of a client’s portfolio, but who is also paid by other sources. For example, the financial planner may collect a commission on the financial products that a client purchases. Fee-based financial planners may be fiduciaries, but are not necessarily fiduciaries; fee-based financial planners, such as brokers and dealers, are only required to sell products that are suitable for their clients. 
  • Fee-only financial planner. A fee-only financial planner is a financial planner who is paid directly by their clients through fees, and these fees are the only source of a planner’s income; they do not collect additional sources of compensation. Fee-only financial planners are fiduciaries, which means they have a professional ethical and legal obligation to put a client’s best interests first. 

What to Consider When Choosing a Financial Planner

When choosing a financial planner, there are many things to consider, including but not limited to their fee structure. Things to ask about when meeting with a financial planner for the first time include:

  • Fee structure. It’s important to ask the financial planner the specifics of their fee structures. This is an important part of understanding your overall financial picture. 
  • Experience. While fee structure is important and something you certainly want to understand, you’ll also want to learn about the financial professional’s experience. 
  • Credentials. Different financial professionals have different credentials based on specific education, training, and experience. For example, CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNERS ™ must meet certain education and experience requirements to earn that designation, and are fiduciaries. 
  • Your goals. Finally, it’s important to think about your financial goals and the reason for which you’re seeking the services of a financial planning professional. Different professionals may have more experience or training in a certain element of financial planning, such as investment services.
