Just like you, we have young families and are busy with life!
We get it. All we need is an hour of your time every 3 months to get you started towards financial success.
We start by analyzing your current situation. Once we have a clear picture of where you are and where you want to be in 5-10 years and over the long-term, we put a step by step plan to help you make your goals a reality.
Don’t worry, we know things can change. Like in sports, you have to adjust to anything that can happen; and stuff will happen! The plan is fluid. If your goals change, we will adjust your plan accordingly.
What makes our idea of a financial plan different is the accountability and support we will give you. Change is not easy, but we have plenty of tricks up our sleeves to help you make it happen.
Yes and that’s the only way we would do our job. We want to take the responsibility of your financial success on our shoulders. That can only be done if we are giving you advice that is in your best interest. To us, it’s just common sense!
There are 2 ways we get paid:
First Way: We charge a fee for the assets that we manage for our clients, instead of getting a commission from a company for selling their products. By paying us a percentage of your assets to manage your investment, you are making us a part of your team. As we grow your assets, we earn more… It’s a win-win!
Second Way: For our clients that have less than $150,000 managed by MoneyCoach, we also have a coaching fee. We want to make sure that we can give you the time you need to become successful. For most people, this will be a little more than $1/day.
MoneyCoach manages our clients’ assets. We have put together tactical strategies to help our clients get healthy returns while avoiding the risk of large drops. We never understood why investors needed to ride the waves of the market, it’s not only stressful, it can actually lower growth of your assets. (Ask us why the next time we meet) Also, doing it ourselves helps us control fees. The more you can keep in your account the better.
We don’t! If you are only starting, we can help you as well. The amount of assets someone has is not a prerequisite to become a client of MoneyCoach. We are looking for people that want help and support. They might have tried to control their money in the past and it didn’t work or they know they need guidance to become financially secure.
We would love to! An important part of what we do is to educate our clients. We have the heart of a teacher and will spend the time you need to feel comfortable with the recommendations we will be giving you. Over time, we promise to make you a savvy investor!
Life is much more than retirement. We believe that people shouldn’t wait for retirement to live life. And we don’t just say it, we did it!!! Patrick’s family moved to Charleston to live a better life. We will help you get the most out of life, now and in the future.
We use TD/Ameritrade Institutional as our custodian. Once you become a client with them, you simply give us the permission to trade your account for you. The company is the leader in helping independent Registered Investment Advisors with their business. Please don’t send money directly to us!
At the beginning of our relationship, we will meet often and in person. There are a lot of things to share and we want to make sure we get you started quickly. However, we understand you are busy with family activities, work and life. We will find out how to accommodate your needs the best way we can.
NO! We don’t have shareholders to please. We don’t want financial-company kick-backs to incentivize us to sell their products. We got rid of all conflicts of interest to be better aligned with you, the client.
