Connemara is relatively unique in that it provides highly qualified professional planning services using cutting-edge technology for a flat fee without a requirement that clients relinquish control over their investment portfolios in exchange for ongoing asset management fees. Clients are given specific investment recommendations with supporting research using low-cost traditional open end mutual funds (active and passive) and exchange traded funds (ETFs) using Vanguard or Fidelity as custodian. Periodic follow-up reviews are then scheduled as needed.
The firm is an excellent fit for those seeking professional planning guidance without surrendering investment control. Many clients are professionals and executives (public, private and not-for-profit) nearing or in retirement. Other clients are young or mid-career professionals and rising executives. Another practice niche involves serving wealthy international families and families of significant inherited wealth.
