WHAT TO EXPECT

Choosing your advisory team is an important and personal decision. We strive to make the process transparent, thoughtful and personal at every step.

1. Establish and define the relationship
We typically start relationships with a phone call or meeting to personally get to know each other, answer your questions, outline how we work with clients, and disclose our compensation model.

2. Understand your goals
We want to know your desires and aspirations and who you are as a person before we craft a financial plan.

3. Analyze and evaluate
We’ll review all your income sources, liquid investment savings, physical assets, debts, and your overall tax situation.

4. Develop a plan
Together, we’ll establish a comprehensive, personalized financial plan. We’ll walk you through your options, explain our recommendations, and risk test the plan against undesired events (e.g. income loss or market decline, disability).

5. Implement the plan
We’ll diversify investments, coordinate income collection, and develop relationships with your other critical advisors (e.g. CPAs, attorneys).

6. Monitor your financial wellbeing
We meet regularly with our clients to monitor and adjust plans when necessary.

FAQS

Am I qualified to be a MarsJewett client?

Most of our clients have a net worth of $1 million or more, however, we do not have a minimum portfolio size. For us, it’s much more about fit – determining if we have the right culture and expertise to deliver real value to you. The reality is that for many people with less accumulated wealth, their finances may not be complex enough to justify the fees associated with comprehensive wealth management. It may be sufficient to set goals and put a plan in place that you can manage yourself. However, we are always happy to meet with you and discuss your unique situation.

What are your fees?

  • Fees for Comprehensive Financial Planning 
  • Investment Advisory Fee based on Assets Under Management (AUM)  

What is a Registered Investment Advisor (RIA)?

MarsJewett Financial Group, Inc. is Registered Investment Advisor (RIA) under the US Security & Exchange Commission (SEC).  No commissions or revenue sharing from investment companies are collected by MarsJewett Financial Group Inc..  Our Financial Advisors are Investment Advisor Representatives meaning they are registered to serve clients under the supervision of MarsJewett Financial Group, Inc.  Financial Planning Fees and Investment Advisory fees are paid to MarsJewett Financial Group not to our individual financial advisors. 

What does it mean that your Financial Advisors are dually registered?

Glenn Mars, Scott Jewett, Brian Mars, Blaine Carver and Elizabeth Sowle are dually registered as brokers of Mutual Securities.  Mutual Securities is an Independent Broker Dealer registered with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA).  Brokers can collect commissions from investments.  Brokers must disclose conflicts of interest and act in a client’s best interest.  A brokerage agreement is not fiduciary level of service.  Glenn Mars stared in the securities business in the 1980s.  At that time most investments were only available under a brokerage arrangement.  We’ve maintained  dual registration to service some older client accounts.  Our firm policy is for our Financial Advisors not to solicit new brokerage business.
