Recommended Financial Advisors

Recommended Financial AdvisorsThis page provides a list of recommended financial advisors. All of the advisors listed on this page are paid advertisers on the site but have been vetted by myself or WCI, with an application below that you can review. Financial planning and investment management is expensive and you should expect to pay thousands of dollars per year for quality service.

We have only included firms which have the lowest fee structures (i.e. flat fee, hourly rate, or AUM  / equivalent fees well below the industry average) to help lower your costs and help you reach early FI. I could charge more to present higher-cost options, but wanted to bring you the best of the best.

While one of our ten recommended financial advisors may not live close to you, all routinely work with clients around the country. Feel free to reach out, regardless of where you call home.

We appreciate hearing feedback on these advertisers, both good and bad. Thank you for supporting those who support this site and our charitable mission.
