Why a range of fees?

Fees are based on complexity – the more moving parts, the more time we’ll spend talking about it, and the more time Abacus Financial Planning will spend modeling scenarios and building recommendations. 

See our services.

For a comprehensive financial plan, is the fee fixed?

Yes! WA state has strong investor protection laws for clients of financial advisors. Abacus Financial Planning bills you for time actually spent working on your plan. If we use less time than estimated, you pay a lower cost. If we spend more time than estimated, you pay only the original estimate.
