Ongoing Financial Planning and Investment Management Fees

Assets Managed by Walhout Financial Annual Fee (% of assets managed)
$1 - $500,0001.00%
$500,001 - $1,000,0000.75%
Above $1,000,0000.50%
Fees include all financial planning services and management of investments on an ongoing basis.  Clients have unlimited access to my services in person and by telephone/email/web conference.  

Fees are calculated on a tiered basis.  For example, if a family has $600,000 invested with Walhout Financial, their annual fee is calculated as 1% times $500,000, plus 0.75% times $100,000.   The fee is $5,750 for that year.   The fee is calculated monthly and varies with the value of your account.  Cost of investment products is additional.  

I use index funds from Dimensional Fund Advisors that cost between 0.3% - 0.45% per year.

The minimum household investment for this service is $250,000.  Exceptions are made for hourly planning clients.  

Accounts managed by Walhout Financial are held at Investia Financial Services Inc.  Click here for more information about Investia.

One-Time Financial Planning Engagements

For clients who are looking for help with some specific financial planning questions, I offer hourly financial planning services.  Engagements are fixed price, based on my hourly rate of $200 per hour.  

For example, if I believe our engagement will take 6 hours, the price of the engagement will be $1200.  I will cap the price of the engagement at that level.  All deliverables, meetings, follow-ups, edits to the work, and discussions are included in that price and will be detailed in a letter of engagement.

There is a 4 hour minimum for this service.
