Investment Management is another core service of Foundations Financial Planning, LLC. We give clients the opportunity to have their investment accounts managed by a Registered Investment Advisor. Our company will act as a fiduciary for our clients. This means that we will put the client's interest above all else.

Investment Management is offered to both planning and non-planning clients. Non-Planning clients will be required to have a one-time information meeting because we don't feel that proper investment decisions can be made without knowing the client's whole financial picture and goals. We offer this service to ease the burden of choosing your own investments. Our investment philosophy can be found below and it highlights our commitment to your long-term goals. This structure allows us to provide investment services without requiring certain asset levels from clients. There are going to be ups and downs in the market, and nobody knows when it will happen. However, we will establish investments that you understand and are comfortable with no matter what happens.
