Fee-only Service

The National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA) defines a Fee-Only planner as "one who, in all circumstances, is compensated solely by the client, with neither the advisor nor any related party receiving compensation that is contingent on the purchase or sale of a financial product. A NAPFA member may not receive commissions, rebates, awards, finder's fees, bonuses or any form of compensation from other as a result of a client's implementation of the individual's planning recommendations."
