What is a fiduciary?

A fiduciary is a professional who is legally obligated to put the interests of their clients ahead of their own.  A fiduciary is held to the highest legal standard to "do the right thing" for their clients.  A fiduciary must disclose any potential conflicts of interest as soon as practical to their clients.

Why should I work with Thoughtful Advisors instead of "doing it myself"?

We provide value to our clients that exceeds the costs of our services.  We help our clients quantify the "unknown unknowns" in their world.  We help our clients understand what is possible for them specifically to achieve.  Collaborating with experienced professionals allows you to "do more" on behalf of your family, profession and the other important causes in your life.

Will Thoughtful Advisors work with my current advisors?

Yes.  We seamlessly engage your other providers on your behalf.  This allows them to focus on their specialty without ignoring important aspects of your overall tax and financial well being.
