Is a Financial Advisor Who Offers Subscription Pricing Right for You?
Over the last several years, Americans have grown accustomed to subscription-based pricing, from streaming television services like Netflix to cell phone apps and software.
And today, a number of financial advisors are offering financial planning services with subscription-based pricing, charging their clients a monthly, quarterly, or annual subscription fee.
These services can range from $50 per month to $500 per month (or more), depending on the level of service and support provided.
Most of these subscription-based financial advisors will charge a one-time fee upfront to get started, then a recurring subscription fee for ongoing services you receive throughout the year.
Depending on the level of service you sign up for, there are usually “packages” that offer a limited amount of annual meetings, financial plan and/or portfolio reviews and 1:1 time with your advisor. Typically, the more you pay, the more access and guidance you’ll have available to you from your advisor.
