Planning Specialties

Fully Financial is a fee-only, fiduciary financial planning and investment management firm. Co-Founders Ben Jacobs and Cody Nichelson created Fully with the belief that everyone, regardless of the size of their investment portfolio, should have access to personalized, fee-only, fiduciary financial planning. They wanted to bring comprehensive and responsive service to more people in Athens and surrounding communities — with transparent, all-inclusive pricing and no minimum asset requirements. As an independent local business, our fee-only model means that our advice is unbiased and our success is driven solely by yours. We believe that’s the way it should be. We aren’t beholden to outside fund managers or third-party companies. We don’t have shareholders, we have stakeholders — our clients. We’ll always do what’s best for them. Working with a fee-only fiduciary means you won’t have to worry about your financial planner’s competing loyalties to you and some external group. Fully is here to provide real financial planning advice to help more people live their lives to the fullest.
