What’s The Cost?

My fee structure is designed to make comprehensive financial planning available to families in all stages of life. There are no minimum asset level requirements to work with me.

Each fee structure includes both Comprehensive Financial Planning and Investment Management services. One fee. Two services.

If you have less than $150,000 in investments managed by Honey Lake Advisors, then you’ll pay a Fixed Annual Fee depending on the complexity of your family’s financial situation.

If you have more than $150,000 in investments managed by Honey Lake Advisors, then you’ll pay a Percentage of Assets Under Management.

More details about each pricing structure is below. Remember, you either pay a Fixed Annual Fee OR a Percentage of Assets Under Management. Not both.

Fixed Annual Fee:

  • From $2,100 to $6,750 per year.
  • Annual fee can be broken down and paid on a monthly basis (i.e. $175/month to $562/month).
  • Your exact fee depends on the complexity of your family’s financial situation.
  • Factors include: Level of household income, income source (W2 wages or business owners), age of children and/or grandchildren, level of investments managed outside HLA.
  • Fee is agreed to up-front before you sign on the dotted line. No surprises.
  • I am a Fee-Only Financial Advisor, which means the only compensation I earn is the fee you pay me. No sales. No commissions. No steering your towards more expensive investments.
