Our goal is for you to make an educated and informed decision about working with us (and walk away with concrete steps to improve your financial life!). This short, simple process is designed to help both of us figure out if we can provide significantly more value than the fee we charge.
Get to know one another and see how we might be helpful.
Learn everything about you, your situation and your goals.
Present opportunities to optimize your tax, investment, and retirement plan.
During this step, we spend fifteen minutes discussing what you’re looking to accomplish and whether our firm is a good solution for you. You’ll leave this call knowing what the financial planning process looks like, how we operate as an Investment Advisor, and any other questions you may have. If it makes sense for us to continue the conversation, we’ll move to step two.
During this step, we talk about tangible opportunities to optimize your investments, lower your future taxes, and organize your financial life. The goal of this meeting is for both of us to figure out if we can provide significantly more value than the fee we charge.
Feel free to bring documents that gives insight into your current financial situation (tax return, statements, balances, Social Security estimate, budget, etc.).
Note: The discovery meeting can be in-person (Woodlands, Houston, DFW, or NWA locations) or virtual.
In this step, we provide a one page summary that outlines the areas we’re excited to help you with and a direct price quote.
This helps you see how we will advise in the defensive portions of your financial life (mainly estate planning and insurance) and the offensive portions (tax planning and retirement planning). You will also see how we build portfolios and manage your investments.
Brownlee Wealth Management offers both financial planning and asset management in the form of a flat annual retainer. This retainer is billed quarterly. Read more about how retainers work in your favor compared to traditional fees. See the chart below for fee estimates.
Note: If you are still in the accumulation phase (under 45), ask us about our accumulation pricing.
Our intent is to provide transparent fee-only advice while we manage investments. We’re excited that clients receive an invoice every quarter with a flat dollar amount. This allows you to simply ask the question, “Did I receive more value than the fee I paid?” Wall Street has historically made investing confusing. They’ve cluttered your finances. They’ve done this while racking up a larger tax bill for you.
Not only this, Wall Street has actually lobbied Washington to evade a fiduciary standard so they can continue in this way! Have you wondered why you have the particular funds or stocks you have? Do you have a strategy around your employer stock? How about your estate plan? Does your family need more insurance but worry that an insurance salesman is going to sell you what’s best for him and not you? Have you estimated what you’re going to pay in taxes throughout retirement…and created a plan to dramatically lower that number?
And why haven’t all of these issues been organized to work in-sync together?
Brownlee Wealth Management exists to change this.
