Benefits of Fee-Based Services

As an advisory client, you'll enjoy the following benefits of our fee-based relationship:

Regular, personalized communication
Fee based services rely on an ongoing relationship. We will meet one or more times a year to ensure your investment policy is tracking toward its goals. You will also receive regular Quarterly Performance Reports that illustrate your progress.
Greater transparency
In today’s economic climate, transparency is a major factor in consumer confidence. When compared to commission-based services, fee-based services are much more transparent. Advisory fees are a fixed percentage of your accounts’ values, and they are clearly displayed in your Quarterly Performance Reports
A more disciplined approach to investing
Markets inevitably rise and fall and trying to time the market can be difficult and costly. Following an investment policy helps to institute a methodical, disciplined approach to investing that can strike a balance between risk and reward.
A mutual incentive
Our compensation is a fixed percentage of your accounts’ values. So, the performance of your advisory accounts is directly proportional to the fees we collect.

Life Insurance Solutions

Are you concerned about protecting your assets? If someone were to ask you to list your assets what would you include? Your home, your car… those are the obvious. 

But beyond your material assets, have your considered… your life, your health and your family's future? The loss of any one of those assets can have a significant impact on your family’s financial future. That’s why a consultative approach can help you determine just what coverage you need at the most affordable premium. 

Insurance Representatives are available to help you with your life insurance needs. Contact US today at 845-943-5045.

Social Security Planning

A new generation is getting ready to collect Social Security. You may have many questions about things like: 

  • Rules and strategies for collecting your retirement benefits and coordinating Social Security with other sources of retirement income.
  • Why advance planning is essential and how some little-known rules can help you make the most of this very valuable benefit.
  • How the decisions you make today can have a tremendous bearing on the total amount of benefits you stand to receive over your lifetime.

Our educational workshop, ‘Savvy Social Security Planning: What Baby Boomers Need to Know to Maximize Retirement Income,’ helps Boomers understand the role Social Security will play in their financial future. 

Savvy Social Security Planning workshops are presented by Richard Jeffreys, CFP, Investment Advisor Representative. To reserve a spot at our next Social Security Planning workshop, please call 845-943-5045.
