What Does Fee-Only Mean? Fee-Only advisors put the needs of their clients first. We are not paid commissions for recommendations ever. See and hear Mr. Dempsey explain why everyone should look first to a Fee-Only® planner and advisor before making financial investments.
"Financial Planners who take commissions have a built-in conflict of interest...even with disclosure, my choice would be a Fee-Only financial planner."
"The most important matter is how the planner is compensated. Hire the planner who...has no financial stake in (your) investments."
"Start with the general practitioner...a Financial Planner (whose) compensation should be from fees alone."
"If you have more than $50,000 to invest, you should fire your broker and find an investment advisor. Brokerage firms would like you to think they perform the same functions as investment advisors." "Financial planners who are members of the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors...submit their work to peer review and are not supposed to charge anything but a fee."
