What types of clients do you work with?
Our favorite topic! We work with financial advisory firms that come from all over the United States and run the gamut in terms of size and scope — from single-advisor shops to nationally-recognized brands. Our ideal clients often focus on serving high-net-worth individuals and families, small businesses, institutions, nonprofits and more.
How do you get paid?
Every Beyond AUM engagement is different because we tailor our services to our clients’ specific needs, challenges and long-term business goals. However, many of our clients prefer to work with us on retainer, although we can (and often do) work on short-term projects, a flat-rate basis and sometimes even hourly.
At the end of the day, we live to serve our clients and thrive on solving the problems they face — so you can expect us to be flexible and collaborative in coming up with an engagement that puts you in the best-possible position to succeed.
What type of investment philosophy do your clients have?
Great question! Most of our clients follow a long-term, passive investment approach that is research-driven (not based on market-timing or stock-picking) and designed to help investors achieve future, personal financial goals. The firms we work with often use funds from managers like Dimensional Fund Advisors, Vanguard and PIMCO, among others.
