FAQ: What you can expect from a relationship with Arcadia Wealth Management?
Arcadia Wealth Management manages investments on a fee-only basis. We have conducted thorough due diligence in our research to identify high quality no-load mutual funds with low expense ratios. There are no commissions generated on any transactions we conduct for our clients. Our fees are tier-based with breakpoints at which your fees decrease on additional assets. Our advice is objective without conflicts of interest, which is essential for an investor’s peace of mind.
Financial planners gather relevant data about the client, analyze it, and then provide a number of recommendations for the client to follow in order to help achieve their specific goals and objectives. Complete financial plans take into consideration all of the elements of the client’s financial situation. This includes, but is not limited to: cash flow planning, investment analysis and planning, tax planning, retirement and estate planning, risk management (insurance needs), education funding and any other needs specific to you.
We provide advice on a wide range of securities, including mutual funds, equities, bonds, annuities, insurance and certificates of deposit. Specifically, we offer access to Dimensional Fund Advisors (DFA). DFA manages the cost of their funds by only offering them via a select group of financial advisory firms.
