Ongoing Financial Planning and Investment Management Fees

Value of Investment Assets Managed by Walhout FinancialAnnual Fees Calculated as a Percentage of Assets Managed

Investments Valued between $500,000 and $1,000,0000.75%
Investments Valued above $1,000,0000.50%
Fees include all financial planning services 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.  Ie.  A family has $650,000 invested with Walhout Financial, their annual fee is calculated as 1% times first $500,000 invested, plus 0.75% times next $150,000 invested.  This totals $5000 + $1,125 = $6,125 per year.  Cost of investment products is additional.  I use index funds from Dimensional Fund Advisors that cost between 0.3% - 0.45% per year.
