What Makes Advocate So Different?
Advocate is about redefining the strength and integrity of the client/advisor relationship. Some investors have a difficult time trusting an advisor whose compensation comes from large upfront commissions or outside sources (fund expenses & fees). Today's investors want holistic financial advice that puts them first, without hidden fees or mis-aligned incentives.
We believe personalized advice that is in your best-interest can only be provided within the context of a fiduciary relationship. By designing Advocate as a transparent, fixed-fee arrangement, we put you in control over, not only the services you receive, but HOW and WHEN you pay for them.
