When thinking about working with a financial planner, it’s important to understand the differences between fee-based and fee-only financial planners.
A fee-only financial planner is a financial planning professional who is paid for their services directly by a client who is paying a fee. That fee could be a flat fee, a fixed percent of a client’s portfolio, or an hourly rate. The financial professional only gets paid through the fee; they do not receive a commission or other form of payment.
A fee-based financial planner, on the other hand, will also get paid by charging a client a fee. However, in addition to the client fee, they may also collect a commission or another form of payment from a provider of a financial service or product that is recommended to a client. While some people argue that this creates a conflict of interest, it’s important to remember that CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNERS™ are fiduciaries. A financial planner who is a fiduciary has a legal and ethical obligation to always work within their clients’ best interests, not the best interests of the financial planner.
Making the decision to work with a financial planner is one of the smartest things that you can do if you want to take control of your financial future. At Harvest Wealth Partners, we have a strong reputation in St. John and the surrounding areas, always prioritize a client’s needs and financial goals, are fiduciaries, and offer free initial consultations.
