Financial Life Advisors is a Fee-Only firm.
Many “financial planners” make a majority of their income from selling commission insurance or investment products. Financial Life Advisors (FLA) wants to remain completely objective and independent when providing advice. FLA is making this commitment to remove as many conflicts of interest as possible so as to better serve our clients.

When you receive Financial Planning services from Financial Life Advisors, you will be dealing with a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNERTM practitioner and their advice will not have been influenced by their commission level from a product they are recommending, because no matter what advice we dispense, we receive the same compensation, YOUR FEE.

Financial Life Advisors charges for Asset Management and Financial Planning services. Typically clients choose to utilize FLA for both services. This usually works best for clients because if performed independently, asset management and financial planning will not be as effective. To coordinate these services and encourage long term relationships, FLA credits 50% of any fees for Financial Planning services against Asset Management fees. See our ADV disclosures for more detailed information.

The total assets being managed for each client are subject to a minimum quarterly asset management fee of $1,562.50. Accordingly, services may not be appropriate for clients with investment assets of less than $500,000.
