How We Work
Most of our clients retain Just Money Advisors for ongoing, fee-only investment management and financial planning. We do not work for commissions. Our goal is to develop and maintain long-term working relationships with our clients. We are committed to knowing our clients well enough that we understand your financial goals, the motivations behind those goals, and your social and environmental concerns. We work to fashion investment portfolios designed to meet your unique needs while reflecting your personal values and social priorities.
We are compensated for the services we offer in one of two ways, depending on the type of client relationship.
- Asset-Based Fees Our fees for investment management services are based on a percentage of assets under management and vary depending on the total value of the client's accounts. We will be happy to show you our fee schedule.
- Hourly Planning/Consulting Fees For people with targeted questions, we are available to work on an hourly basis. Perhaps you are looking for a financial overview or retirement projection, an answer to that key question, "How am I doing financially?" Hourly work may also be appropriate if you are looking for help with planning for college funding, a review of your current investment portfolio, or other specific questions.
Consultations include a brief overview to ensure whether community investing is appropriate in your situation, discussion of the many options available to people who want to put their money to work for maximum social impact, and guidance through the community investment process.
Just Money Advisors has clients in more than 25 states in the US. If you're comfortable working by phone and e-mail, distance is no barrier. JMA advisors also make regular trips to several regions where a number of clients reside.
Andy is an investment advisory representative of First Affirmative Financial Network, a national network of socially responsible financial professionals. He is a member of the US SIF and Green America (formerly Co-op America).
