Keep reading if you…

…share our values (client service, curiosity, transparency, tenacity & rigor), our heroes (Jack Bogle, Wade Pfau, Bill Sharpe, Fama & French), and our disruptive edge (we charge a single fixed fee for wealth management because AUM pricing stinks for clients).

…want to be well compensated (base salary $125-150K, opportunity for $200K+ total) for serving and retaining clients - not driving new business.
