  • Jennifer M.

    Excellent meeting! Wonderful advice and education I needed!

  • Mark R.

    Don is a genuine person who does truly care about each and every client. He takes the time to listen to what your goals are and creates a strategy that’s consistent with that. Everyone is different so the cookie cutter approach does not apply with him. I have used his services and recommended them to friends and family. There are a lot of financial planners out there, but this one one has an energy and passion that is hard to find.

  • Ben K.

    From beginning to end they listened, they were helpful, and they really had good ideas about investment management

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

A free, 2 hour consultation on issues, goals, needs, etc. We are even happy to discuss other northern Illinois based competitor's strengths and weaknesses to help make a comparison.

If a client decides our low cost, fee only approach makes sense, accounts are opened at Schwab (we custody everything with Charles Schwab) and the transfer and investment process begins.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

We have been in the investment management business since 1986 and work with clients all over the world. Our approach follows the tried and true method of low cost, well diversified portfolio management and is generally accepted in the industry as the very best way to produce the very best returns over time.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.

Our low cost, fee only approach generally ranges in price from 1/2 of 1% to as high as 1% on assets under management.
