FEES: I believe that clients are best served when advisor and client goals are aligned, which is why I work primarily on fee based compensation. This means there is no commission charged per-transaction. This fee model is transparent and helps build trust and foster the deep relationship that I strive to have with all my clients. Of course this fee includes the investment portfolio management - asset allocation, investment selection, monitoring, rebalancing - but in addition you receive access to our network of professionals and solutions for financial planning, estate planning, tax planning, business advice, insurance consulting, retirement savings, education savings, philanthropy, etc. Above all, you are paying for excellent and caring service. My goal is to be the first person you call regarding anything in your financial life. By providing regular contact, limiting the number of families I work with, and delivering fully-inclusive service, you will see the value from the advice and stewardship you receive. FEE-BASED PROGRAMS: BMO Nesbitt Burns offers a comprehensive selection of fee based and managed investment programs. These programs are designed to meet the specialized needs of investors who want greater investment flexibility, diversification or that seek a professional portfolio manager to make investment decisions on their behalf – all for a transparent and competitive fee. Our offer includes a number of managed investment programs that provide access to a comprehensive range of professionally managed portfolios based on your individual goals and risk tolerance. While you are not involved in the day-to-day investment decision making process, you can be assured that the portfolio managers selected are managing your investments according to your stated objectives, and are being actively monitored to make certain they continue to meet the needs of our clients. And, for those looking for a traditional relationship with their BMO Nesbitt Burns Investment Advisor, our fee-based offer includes non-discretionary programs that allow you to remain fully involved in all investment decisions regarding your portfolio.
