Although the term “fiduciary” has become more popular in recent years, Navigoe has been a fee-only, fiduciary financial planner for over 20 years. Conflicts of interest have proliferated the financial industry for decades, but Founder Scott Leonard has been known to say ,“How can I work with a company that pays more in fines and settlements every year than the total net worth of all my clients? If I don’t trust the company, why should I expect my clients to trust me?”
Scott felt so strongly about being a fiduciary that he joined the board of the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA, the professional association for fee-only financial advisors) and founded Navigoe. He was an early believer in the fee-only model, so he decided to start a firm whose team of CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professionals would focus on providing independent, unbiased guidance that solely serves our clients’ best interests.
The great part of working with a fee-only, fiduciary financial planner is that you receive our best advice — no product sales, no corporate agendas, no hidden fees. Your best interests always come first.
At Navigoe, financial planning is not a byproduct or secondary service. It’s at the core of everything we do for our clients. Our fee-only, fiduciary model takes this commitment to long-term financial success one step further.
Today more than ever, there is endless noise around financial topics. It’s becoming harder to know which information is good, how to separate a columnist’s opinion from fact and how to detect a salesperson from to a truly independent consultant. Fortunately, there are a growing number of financial practitioners who have taken the necessary steps to put your needs ahead of their own: the fee-only, fiduciary CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professionals.
Navigoe’s advisors have been at the forefront of this movement for over two decades. Since our doors opened in 1996, our team has served as fee-only fiduciaries to instill utmost confidence that you receive nothing but our best, unbiased advice each and every time.
