At Finley, our primary focus is on the needs of the middle-class millionaire. As a fiduciary compensated directly by our clients with fully disclosed professional fees, honesty is the core of our relationship. We refuse commissions or any other misaligned third-party incentives. Our business model has been purposefully designed for those with $1 to $10 million of wealth, as big fish in our right-sized pond. We limit new client relationships to those with greater than $1 million in investment assets. This allows us more time to focus on wealth management issues most relevant to our clients. We utilize tax-efficient portfolio design and income distribution strategies to preserve and protect your wealth.
