How to Choose a Financial Planner

Do you know how to select a financial planner that has your best interests in mind? Selecting a finacial planner can be a daunting experience. There are many professionals in the field who may want to focus on short-term relationships while selling you expensive mutual funds and bank-generated products with high mark-ups.

Here at Summit Rock Wealth Management, we put our clients’ interests first by placing our focus on Assets Under Management (“AUM”). While there are varying compensation structures for financial advisors, we find that basing the majority of our fees on AUM, incentivizes better portfiolio performance rather than loading up on transactions to create commissions. We also offer a personal touch and eliminate the high-markups by selectively analysing and structuring a portfolio to meet your unique needs rather than to pay for the high overhead at banks or big-name, investment brands.

A financial planner should be FINRA and State registered, have expertize in your investment focus, be a stable member of the community but also have national coverage, have strong ethics and put clients’ interests before their own. Here at Summit Rock Wealth Managment, we can check the box on all of these and also offer support in Family Office Services as well as Tax Advisory for a select group of clients.

Additionally, working under Cambridge Investment Research via Gateway Financial, we have the strong backing of one of the largest independent broker-dealer networks in the U.S. We can transact in every U.S. State and offer not only Investment Advisory Services, but also Investment and Insurance Products as well as brokerage services.
