About our firm.
Jeffrey A. Drayton Financial Planning & Wealth Management, LLC was founded with a singular purpose: to provide financial planning and investment advice that is passionately dedicated to our clients’ best interest. With this end in mind, our firm was established as a Fee-Only financially planning firm. This means that we do not earn commissions and we do not sell products. The only revenue we receive is that which is paid directly to us by our clients in the form of payment for services rendered. Therefore, it is only to our clients that we are beholden, it is they who we serve. We believe that Fee-Only is simply the best model for receiving unbiased, untainted advice in creating your financial plan; and, for this reason, the confusing and opaque world of commissions and sales loads does not exist in our practice.
In service to our singular purpose, we believe in educating our clients. We want them to understand the investments they make, and the costs associated with making them. We do not take custody of client assets and we therefore have no hidden agendas. Our clients are at complete liberty to act upon our recommendations and, should they choose to do so, are able to affect their transactions with anyone of their choosing.
We believe that for too many people, the experience they have had with the financial services industry has left them wondering: was that really in my best interest, or was I just sold something? If that is a sentiment that resonates with you, we encourage you to give us a try. An initial consultation will cost you nothing but your time. Come see what it is like to work with a financial planning firm whose only concern is you.
