How We Are Different
We Always Act In Your Best Interest...No Exceptions
The industry call this a Fiduciary standard. This may seem like common sense, but much of the industry doesn’t have to. Our advice will only be what’s best for you, and not what earns the company the most money
No Commissions...This means transparency to you
Straight Path Wealth does not accept commissions. While much of the industry earns money from hidden commissions that vary from product to product, creating conflicts of interest clients don’t even know about, our fees are clearly disclosed and only go up when your account goes up. Also, when your account goes down, so do our fees.
Tax Planning and Preparation
Taxes can eat away at investment returns and even ruin the best retirement plans. Many times, simple tax planning can save $1,000s a year, and much more over a lifetime. But most financial planners don’t provide the advice, and even those who do, only do it on a limited basis that provides minimal value. At Straight Path, we have a whole team dedicated to providing you with the best tax advice possible. With a CPA and an Enrolled Agent as part of your financial planning team, you get the best financial plan you can
Real Financial Planning that is Engaging
Many people think visiting a financial planner is about as fun as visiting the dentist. And the way financial planning has been done in the past makes the comparison true. Endless jargon, graphs and spreadsheets don’t help you understand your money better. We use a “continual improvement” process where we identify what’s most important to you, and then work on improving your financial life one step at a time...all without the jargon... but with the expertise you need
Most of the industry purposefully makes finances hard to understand. By using acronyms, financial jargon, and burying you in confusing graphs, its difficult to understand, and even more difficult to feel comfortable with what is happening with your money. At Straight Path, it is critically important that we explain things in terms you understand and enact strategies that you are comfortable with. Our motto is Plan Better, Invest Better, and Live Better. The ultimate goal is Living Better and that includes you feeling comfortable and knowledgeable about what’s going on with your money
