Frequently Asked Questions

A fiduciary is legally bound to act in the client’s best interest at all times. Our advisors are CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER® professionals and act as fiduciaries, keeping your best interests above all else when making recommendations.

Investment management services are billed as a percentage of the invested assets we manage. This transparent fee structure ensures that our incentive is to manage your investments with your best interests in mind. 

Our specialty is assisting Eli Lilly employees with all aspects of their financial planning and investment management. Unlike most financial advisors, we are working with Lilly employees every day on financial issues that are important to them, and we have counseled hundreds of current and former Lilly employees. If you’re tired of trying to do it on your own or working with a generalist financial advisor, we can help. 

We serve clients across the country in 27 states and Puerto Rico. Our technology capabilities allow us to conduct client meetings and conversations virtually no matter where you are. 

As an independent firm we do not work for a bank, brokerage or insurance company. We work for our clients and our independence allows us to place their interests first. We have chosen Commonwealth Financial Network, a Registered Investment Advisor-independent broker/dealer that provides business solutions to independent advisors like us, but we don’t work for Commonwealth. National Financial Services LLC, a Fidelity Investments broker dealer, acts as custodian of client assets. 

We are not managing a pooled investment fund. Each client portfolio is individually managed towards their unique goals, therefore it’s not possible to provide an average return across the firm.

Our advisors are highly experienced and are CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER® professionals and Chartered Financial Consultants (ChFC). In an increasingly complex financial world, when seeking advice about the assets that you’ve worked so hard to accumulate, working with a qualified professional is essential.

Your financial goals and unique situation guide our disciplined, systematic investment approach. The market moves through cycles. We know that trying to outguess the daily gyrations is an impossible task. We also know that emotions should not have a role in making decisions about your investments. Reacting to short-term market movements or otherwise trying to time the market is never part or our process. We invest across multiple asset classes (we don’t put all your eggs in one basket) using our “All-star team” approach.

*Fidelity Investments and National Financial Services LLC (together "Fidelity") is an independent company, unaffiliated with Eli Lily and Commonwealth. Fidelity is a service provider to both. Fidelity provides clearing, custody, or other brokerage services through National Financial LLC or Fidelity Brokerage Services LLC, Members NYSE, SIPC. 1105120.1.0
