Advocating for Fee-Only financial planning and wealth management.

Working with clients in the Twin Cities, greater Minnesota, and in other areas where exempted, Jeffrey A. Drayton Financial Planning & Wealth Management, LLC, provides Fee-Only financial planning and wealth management to people from all walks of life. We do not sell products, earn commissions, accept referral fees, or receive compensation in any form other than that which is paid directly to us by our clients. As a Fee-Only financial planner, our compensation model is transparent; our clients know exactly what they are being charged and their best interest is our only concern.  

We specialize in a wholistic approach to your financial planning needs. Whether you are early in your career, ready to retire, or anywhere in-between, we work to provide you with a clear path toward your financial goals. A path that is tailored to your specific needs.

If you are new to the financial planning process or have simply never worked with a Fee-Only financial planner before, we encourage you to contact us and share your story. We look forward to learning about you.    


Areas of Practice

Investment Planning

The world of investing is complicated. We help our clients understand the investments they make and construct investment portfolios that consider their goals, timelines, and risk tolerance.

We do not charge a separate management fee, nor is our fee calculated as a percentage of assets under management. Whenever possible, we try to reduce the investment expenses that our clients pay.

Tax Planning

If there is one constant in our tax code, that constant is change. We help our clients understand how taxes will affect their assets now and potentially in the future. We help in developing strategies to minimize the impact our clients’ tax liability will have on their accumulated wealth.   

Risk Management

In addition to helping our clients grow their assets and achieve wealth, we help them develop a risk management strategy to reduce their exposure to catastrophic events. Events that could financially devastate them and their families. We do this not as commissioned salespeople, but as CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ Professionals whose only concern is your well-being. 

Education Planning

With education costs rising multiple times that of overall inflation, now more than ever you need an education savings plan. We help our clients understand their education savings options and the advantages and disadvantages each strategy offers. We also help with late college planning strategies; ideas for those whose child is at or near college age.

Retirement Planning

Whether you are currently retired and planning an income strategy from your portfolio or working to accumulate the wealth that will one day provide the retirement of your dreams, we are here to assist you with your planning needs. Decisions you make now will likely have a seismic impact on your future wealth. We help our clients understand their options and the ramifications each decision will have now and in years to come.  

Estate Planning

We work with clients to see to it that they have properly accounted for how their assets will transfer to their intended heirs. We evaluate clients’ exposure to estate taxes and other transfer expenses, and devise strategies to reduce this exposure where appropriate.


By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.
