How are we different? We can better serve our clients by alleviating common issues of the financial services industry:
We are fiduciaries. That means we are required to make decisions and use products that are always in your best interest.
We handle every client individually, so you will never feel like you are ‘just a number!’
We refuse to sell products or take commissions, eliminating any conflict of interest with clients.
We are fee-only – your charges are easy to understand and cheaper than the ‘Big Banks.’
We don’t have investment restrictions or penalize you if you don’t have ‘enough’ money.
We focus on the people side of the business (you) and not the product side.
Plato said necessity is the mother of invention… We felt the only way to solve these problems was to create a firm based on fixing them.
Innovate Wealth puts the focus back where it should be. You!
Everyone has a different relationship with money, all based on your individual values. We help you discover what those are and manage your money accordingly.
We created Innovate Wealth to serve everyone, regardless of their circumstance. We guarantee two things: we’re cheaper than your existing advisor, and we have the flexibility to fit your situation.
In the investment business we spend a lot of time talking about risk. As it applies to portfolio construction and management it is a decades-long debate: how to structure, how to measure, how to optimize. Academics and asset allocators keep the debate...
Good financial planning can save you money. A lot of money. This example shows a simple Roth conversion strategy for a person entering retirement that can shift a large percentage of money from taxable to non-taxable. Most people don’t...
I recently distributed a client survey with a simple question in mind: how can I make the Firm more helpful for clients? I received some great feedback, particularly as it relates to the markets. Clients want a market update, but brief, and...
Why should I care about Fiduciary management?
Most people working in the financial industry are not fiduciaries. By definition, that means they are not required to do what’s in your best interest. Don’t you want to work with an advisor that is required to work in your best interest? Innovate Wealth has chosen to operate as a true fiduciary, which means we are legally bound to make decisions in your best interest.
I don't have a lot of money to invest, can I still be a client?
We don’t have investment minimums. Investments are just a piece of your overall financial picture. We set a minimum fee for all clients to ensure everyone receives the same dedicated, quality service. We also provide hourly options in cases where clients just want to ask a few questions.
What can I expect if I work with you?
Before we discuss investments or plans, we will spend time organizing your financial life and studying your needs and values. Only then can we align your investments and assets so they are maximized for your needs. We use the most modern and flexible technology to create a customized, online, interactive experience for every client.
What does fee-only mean?
It means the only way Innovate Wealth makes money is through a fee that we negotiate with you ahead of time. We do not sell products and do not accept commissions of any kind. Big banks and Wall Street financial advisors make money in many ways. They may charge you a fee, but they may also receive commissions on products they sell you, a percentage of mutual funds they buy for you, and other fees that you may not even know about. By being fee-only, we eliminate any conflicts of interest that commissions may present.
How do I know my money is safe?
Innovate Wealth will never take custody of your money. If we are managing your investments, your money will always be placed with a qualified custodian.
Where are you located?
We work with clients in 14 different states. As long as you are comfortable working virtually using the technology we provide, we’ll work with you anywhere and will likely have other clients nearby.
