WE ARE DIFFERENT
We are fee-only financial advisors. We don’t accept sales commissions, kickbacks or rebates from any investment or insurance companies. We’re not about products and transactions.
We are an independent, fee-only financial advisor. Unlike many financial advisors, Clear Path Financial Planning advisors are also fiduciaries for our clients, and we put that in writing with our Fiduciary Promise. We operate with complete transparency, avoid conflicts of interest, and disclose all details, fees and expenses. We take the time to thoroughly explain all of your investments in plain English.
Because we put you first, we don’t accept sales commissions, kickbacks or rebates from any investment companies. We’re not about products and transactions. The result? There are none of the conflicts of interest inherent in commissioned broker transactions.
We’re Different. This is not how all advisors run their business. We encourage all consumers to understand how their advisors are being compensated. To schedule a private consultation with one of our financial advisers, call us at 203-699-6631 or 203-671-4246.
