There is not one cookie cutter solution to how money should be invested.  The process is an in-depth personal approach based on client situations, circumstance, goals, risk and time horizon.

To us, a large part of that planning is having out customers understand our fees and what they are being charged.

Please view the fee section of our ADV below.  You may also view the current years ADV here or by visiting the SEC Advisor Information website here.


A client agreement will outline the following fee structures. Either party may cancel an agreement for any reason, provided that 30 days advanced notice is given. All fees may be negotiated.

All charges for service(s) will be either billed directly to the customer or be withdrawn directly from the client’s account. This is the choice of the investor and can be changed at any time. If FAI or FFS withdraws advisory fees directly from clients account, client will be sent a copy of the invoice at the same time as the custodian or trustee. The custodian will also send quarterly statements showing all disbursements for the custodian accounts.

FAI does not charge any performance-based fees, that is, fees based on a share of the capital gains or capital appreciation of the assets in a participant’s plan. FAI charges fees solely as described in above. FAI does not compensate its supervised persons with performance-based fees.

As a result, FAI or FFS does not have any conflicts of interest that might arise from charging fees calculated on varying bases for various client accounts.

Investment Advisor

(Below Definition From U.S. SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION) Read More Here.

An investment adviser is a person or firm that is engaged in the business of providing investment advice to others or issuing reports or analyses regarding securities, for compensation. Investment advisers may include money managers, investment consultants, financial planners, general partners of hedge funds, and others who are compensated for providing advice about securities

Individuals or firms that receive compensation for giving advice on investing in securities such as stocks, bonds, mutual funds, or exchange traded funds are deemed to be investment advisers. It is also common for investment advisers to manage portfolios of securities. RIAs generally are paid in any of the following ways: a percentage of the value of the assets they manage for clients, an hourly fee, fixed fee, a commission on the securities they sell (if the adviser is also a broker-dealer).

At FAi we found that the business model that is afforded to the investment professional through the RIA platform allows for a closer client relationship with interests aligning due investment architecture and offerings as well as advisor compensation.
