Not Knowing This About Your Financial Advisor Will Cost You

As an In-House Tax Strategist for a “Wealth Management” office, I had the unique perspective of watching and observing the gyrations a wealth advisory team will go through in order to “land a client”. My job, of course, was to bring value added services to the existing and potential clientele. Well, not exactly. I had the mindset of that purpose but in truth, it was just one more way for the “financial advisor” to get in front of another new prospect. In fact, that one purpose “get in front of another prospect” was the driving force in every decision. Think about it this way. A Financial Advisory Firm will make tens of thousands of dollars for each new client “they land” versus a few hundred dollars more for doing a better job with their existing clientele. You see, depending on how a financial advisory firm is built, will dictate what is most important to them and how it will greatly affect you as the client. This is one of the many reasons why Congress passed the new DOL fiduciary law this past spring, but more about that in a latter article.

When a financial advisory firm concentrates all of their resources in prospecting, I can assure you that the advice you are receiving is not entirely to your benefit. Running a successful wealth management office takes a lot of money, especially one that has to prospect. Seminars, workshops, mailers, advertising along with support staff, rent and the latest sales training can cost any size firm hundreds of thousands of dollars. So, as you are sitting across the glossy conference table from your advisor, just know that they are thinking of the dollar amount they need from the procurement of your assets and they will be allocating that into their own budget. Maybe that’s why they get a little ‘huffy’ when you let them know “you have to think about it”?

Focusing on closing the sale instead of allowing for a natural progression would be like running a doctor’s office where they spend all of their resources how to bring in prospective patients; how to show potential patients just how wonderful they are; and the best way for the doctor’s office staff to close the deal. Can you imagine it? I bet there would be less of wait! Oh, I can just smell the freshly baked muffins, hear the sound of the Keurig in the corner and grabbing a cold beverage out of the refrigerator. Fortunately or unfortunately, we don’t experience that when we walk into a doctor’s office. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. The wait is long, the room is just above uncomfortable and a friendly staff is not the norm. That is because Health Care Providers spend all of their time and resources into knowing how to take care of you as you are walking out the door instead of in it.

As you are searching for financial advice, there are a hundred things to think about when growing and protecting your wealth, especially risk. There are risks in getting the wrong advice, there are risks in getting the right advice but not asking enough of the right questions, but most importantly, there are risks of not knowing the true measure of wealth management. The most common overlooked risk is not understanding the net return on the cost of receiving good financial advice. Some financial advisors believe that if they have a nice office with a pleasant staff and a working coffee maker they are providing great value to their clients. Those same financial advisors also spend their resources of time and money to put their prospective clients through the ‘pain funnel’ to create the sense of urgency that they must act now while preaching building wealth takes time. In order to minimize the risk of bad advice is to quantify in real terms. One of the ways to know if you are receiving value for your financial advice is to measure your return backwards.

Normally, when you come to an agreement with a financial advisor there is a ‘management fee’ usually somewhere between 1% and 2%. In fact, this management fee can be found in every mutual fund and insurance product that has investments or links to indexes. The trouble I observed over and over again as I sat through this carnival act, was that management fees, although mentioned, were merely an after-thought. When presenting their thorough portfolio audit and sound recommendations, the sentence used to the unsuspecting client was that the market has historically provided an average of 8% (but we’re going to use 6% because we want to be ‘conservative’) and we’re only going to charge you 1.5% as a management fee. No big deal, right?

Let’s discover why understanding this management fee ‘math’ is so important, and how it could actually save your retirement. This could actually keep you from going broke using a financial advisor simply by measuring your financial advice in reverse. Let’s look at an example to best demonstrate a better way to look at how good your financial advisor is doing.

Now, before we begin, I have always understood that whoever gets paid first wins. We only have to look at our paycheck to see who gets paid before we do to understand that perspective. It is equally important to know that management fees are taken out first, unless you are lucky enough to have the income, the assets and a willing financial advisor to only get paid when they make you money. Funny though, this is exactly how you should review your own historical performance with your financial advisor and if they should be fired. Let’s say you have investable assets of $250,000 as you sit down with a wealth management team. They have just provided you with PowerPoint presentations, marketing materials and a slideshow on their 50″ HD Computer Screen in their freshly redecorated conference room showing that you can make 8% and they’re only going to charge you 1.5% annually (quick math $3,750 every year). You see in their presentation your investable assets appreciating over the next 10 years all the way up to $540,000. Sweet!

Now, this is not the article on why using the “Average Rate of Return” is absolutely the wrong measurement to use because it uses linear math when it is more appropriate to use geometric math in Compound Annual Growth Rate which incorporates time… But let’s look at how fees have a depreciating element to your investments.

After consideration, you agree to a 1.5% annual management fee to be paid quarterly. The financial advisor needs to get paid first so your portfolio’s management fees come out first. Consequently, your $250,000 becomes $249,000 and at 8% average annual rate of return, your assets after the first quarter are now $254,000. After the first year? Your assets are now worth $266,572 after fees of $3,852.

Financial Advisor Portfolio or Self-Managing ETF Portfolio

Self-Management Portfolio

I’d like to take this time to explore the differences in doing your own portfolio built on buying two ETFs (SPY and AGG). For the purposes of this illustration we will be allocating 80% to the S&P 500 (SPY) and 20% Barclay’s US Bond Aggregate (AGG). This is the time to say, I am not recommending any specific investments: this is for illustrative purposes only. The actual average rate of return for this allocation for the past 10 years is 4.24%, so without considering fees, an initial investment balance accumulates to $381,292. These ETFs have an embedded annual management fee of.15% (SPY) and.08% (AGG) with an aggregate of.14% for this allocation producing $4,178 in total ‘out of pocket’ fees over the 10 years. If we understand that our portfolio appreciated $130,319 and it cost you $4,178 for a Net Gain in your portfolio, then your NET COST of FEES is 3.21%. But it doesn’t end there, to truly quantify how fees eat away at your portfolio we must take this process a step further. The TRUE COST of FEES is calculating the difference of your portfolio with and without fees, in this case is $5,151 and comparing that to the Net Gain in your portfolio or 4.1%. In other words, over a ten year period, the cost of having these investments was 4.1%, $381,292 (without fees) versus $376,141 (Ending Balance with fees).

Financial Advisor Portfolio

For the sake of this illustration we are going to assume the financial advisor does better over the same 10 year period, about 6% annual average rate of return. You agree to let them take a 1.5% annual management, paid quarterly. Your $250,000 portfolio accumulates to $392,308 over 10 years with ‘out of pocket’ fees of $47,108, or $4711 per year. Your portfolio’s NET COST, or the fees of $47,108 to gain $189,416 in your portfolio, is almost 25%. More than that, your TRUE COST of Financial Advice is 44.7%. Plainly, your Financial Advisor’s portfolio is $63,617 less than if you had no fees and it accumulated to $455,926. As expected, your portfolio realized an average rate of return of 5.69%. In this illustration, the financial advisor portfolio did ‘out-perform’ the DIY portfolio of ETFs by $16,167 by outpacing the average rate of return by.61% annually.

Utilizing our proprietary software and a hundred test cases, we wanted to see how much better does a financial advisor need to realize to bring value to the client advisor relationship? This number is dependent on a number of factors: amount of investable assets, length of time, management fees charged and of course, the rate of return. What we did experience, is that the range went from its lowest to 1.25% to as high as 4%. In other words, in order to ‘break-even’ on bringing value to the client-advisor relationship, the financial advisor must realize at least a 1.25% higher net gain in average rate of return.

Please know, that we are not trying to dissuade anyone from utilizing the services of a financial advisor. We would be making our own clientele pretty unhappy. Instead, we want to present more transparency on how to measure the competency level of your financial advice. Heaven knows an experienced, knowledgeable advisor brings much more to the relationship than can be quantified by a number, but we do want the ability to truly measure the cost of this financial legacy. Just like most things in life, the line between success and failure is razor thin. In the above illustration, if the financial advisor portfolio’s ending balance was lowered by just $25,000 that would mean the annual average rate of return lowers.5% resulting in a lower ending balance than the self-managed account by $6,527. What if we changed the allocation to 70/30 allocation split? The Financial Advisor’s portfolio underperforms by $12,144 while still costing the client almost $60,000 in fees over the 10 years.

One final thought as we wrap things up here. You may be interviewing for a new advisor now or possibly in the near future. One of the most important questions you would want to ask and most of them do not want to answer or know how to answer is, “How good is your historical performance?” Now, this is usually where you get the song and dance from the wealth management team. They will extol the virtues of “every portfolio is different” or “all circumstances and risk tolerances inhibit us from ‘projecting’ rates of return” or, my favorite, “It’s about the plan! Your dreams and goals will be much different than anyone else, even if they have the same amount assets, income and risk assessment.” These of course are all true statements, but it does not preclude a wealth management team from the ability to show past performance of how they manage money. Going out on a limb, isn’t that why you are interviewing advisors? To see if they can do better than what you are currently doing either on your own or with your soon-to-be-ex financial advisor?

A Look Behind the Curtain

What most financial advisors won’t tell you is just how similar the construction of each client portfolio really is. I can’t tell you how many multi-million dollar firms have every client’s portfolio look pretty identical from one another. It’s usually made up of “3 Buckets”. Now these have different meanings for different advisors such as “Soon – Not so Soon – Long Term Money” or the “Safe – Moderately Safe – Risky” purposes for your investable assets. Believe me when I say this, most advisors pay a lot of money and spend a lot of their time on how to tell this story, to get the client to change their mindset of what they have been taught all along since childhood from their parents. It is not necessary for financial planning to be this complicated, unless of course, there is salesmanship going on. We learned from an early age and then proactively budgeted our entire adult lives to make more than we spend, save as much as we can so we can live off of what we have accumulated. But somehow, wealth advisors have created this sales system to get people to worry (“The Pain Funnel”) that they will outlive their money or worse, not be able to keep the lifestyle clients so richly deserve. You see, in sales, you create pain, step on it and then provide a solution. I believe we can be a lot more honest here and focus our advice transparently without resorting to ‘scare tactics’. Building an investment portfolio, retirement income strategy or legacy plan should be as comfortable as they are obvious.

Most wealth management teams will start with the same basic “financial plan” for your assets: short-term money that has no volatility (this is where you have your emergency/vacation/play money); then you will have near-short term money (usually about 3 – 7 years of very little volatility; and then the last division of your assets is long term money (10 years or more) with a lot of volatility (managed money). Please be aware that this is the exact moment where financial advisors practice in order to “land the prospect”. They will have you write in the percentage of how much your assets you want in the first, second and third ‘buckets’ according to your “Risk Tolerance”. I’ll explain in a later article why this entire methodology is mathematically inhibitive to long term financial success. In lieu of writing in percentages, you’ll better served to focus on two facets: the fees for the first two ‘buckets’ (your rate of interest is generally very low so any fees will have a higher detrimental effect) and the entrance and exit strategy for your managed money held in the last bucket. They will tell you that “long term growth is omnipotent to the success throughout your retirement years. So, if that’s the case they had better ‘show you the money’!

Bottom line: There is a historical performance of your wealth management team that can be shown… so ask for it. Oh, another hint, make sure it is actual performance and not ‘back tested” performance. The financial industry now has software programs that allow us to take a computer-based allocation model and utilize financial data of domestic stocks and bonds for the past 20 years to show a simulated historical performance within a 3% margin of error. I don’t know about you, but I would want my money manager to have more than a couple of years of experience no matter how pretty their brochures are or wonderful their office smells.

So, how are We Really Doing?

Earlier, we compared what an average financial advisor (giving them the benefit of the doubt that they indeed performed better over a 10 year period) did compared to a Do-It-Yourself portfolio made up of S&P 500 and Barclays US Bond Aggregate ETFs. But how did the same portfolio do against the Nasdaq (QQQ) over the same time period? Given the same 80/20 allocation, the QQQ Portfolio gained an average of 12.73% annually versus the 6.05% for the Financial Advisor. The Nasdaq (QQQ) plus Bonds (AGG) gained over $471,000 more in assets over that same time period, or roughly $47,000 per year. Now, I need to point out that if we looked at QQQ returns of 2000-2009 then the portfolio would have lost an accumulated 9.12% of value in assets. The QQQ ETF Net Average Annual Rate of Return since 2000 is 2.38%. Our focus in putting together client portfolios is to minimize inhibitors like fees, taxes and risk since those are in our control (can’t control the market). When viewing portfolios and net worth statements of our clients through this prism and then bringing it through our proprietary software, we can grade ourselves as well as our portfolio managers with real, audited data. For example, one of our money managers has a computer-based, moderate growth portfolio (70/30 allocation split) that has a 12.68% average rate of return over the same time period as all 3 portfolios. Loosely translated, this Moderate Growth Portfolio outperformed the S&P 500 ETF Portfolio by $342,000. When it comes to the accumulation portion of our client’s financial plan, we can ascertain what is working and what isn’t by quantifying the NET performance.

With so many choices, it is difficult to ascertain subjectively who you should trust as a financial advisor, if you should trust one at all! As a consumer, when we purchase just about anything, we constantly compare the price versus the benefit of ownership with an understanding the sliding scale of risk associated with owning whatever we are buying whether it’s buying a gallon of milk, a haircut or a piece of furniture. The higher the price, usually higher the risk, the more we want to weigh the attributes of doing something or doing nothing; measure the value of hiring it done or doing it yourself. The legacy of ownership greatly effects the amount of risk involved in getting the right information in order to act on the right advice for results that are satisfactory to your needs and expectations. Our purpose for creating this proprietary software was to come up with a simple ‘report card’ to measure between advisors and to affirm the decision to have someone else manage your investable assets and your financial future. We believe that as financial advisors, we should be held to a measurable account definitive to always doing what is best for the client’s interest. The largest service we provide is inherently, producing a higher net rate of return on the overall net worth of our clients than if they simply could manage their own financial assets. In today’s financial environment, we cannot afford to make any mistakes no matter how minuscule. This is why having the ability to simply, clearly quantify the value of your advice is truly omnipotent to your financial success.

Cladding Painting: Achieving a Professional Finish

Cladding is a popular way of covering walls and building sides in commercial buildings. It offers a wide range of aesthetic options and provides excellent weather protection. It can be made from a variety of materials, including concrete, metal and wood. While some homeowners prefer to leave their cladding unfinished to maintain a raw and natural look, others choose to paint their cladding for a more aesthetically pleasing finish. It is essential to know that the type of paint and preparation method used will significantly impact the final result. Therefore, it is important to consider all the factors involved when deciding on the best approach for cladding painting.

The first step in preparing your cladding for painting is cleaning the surface thoroughly. This will remove dirt, grime, mildew and any other contaminants that have built up. Use the right chemicals and equipment for cleaning the cladding, and where possible, manually scrub it to ensure all areas are cleaned well. This will help to avoid any damage to the cladding that can be caused by harsh chemicals and improper cleaning methods.

After washing the cladding, it’s then a good idea to sand down any rough areas to create a smooth surface. This will also help the new coat of paint to adhere well to the cladding. It’s also worth masking off any areas that aren’t going to be painted, as this will protect them from overspray and dust. Once the cladding has been sanded down, it should be rinsed and allowed to dry completely before applying any additional layers of paint.

When painting cladding, it is essential to use a high-quality paint that has been specifically designed for exterior surfaces. This will ensure that the paint lasts longer and resists water damage better than traditional household paint. If you are unsure which paint to use, a professional cladding painting for a professional look company should be able to advise you on the most suitable option for your building.

This will give your business a uniform appearance and help you to stand out from the competition.

Choose Epoxy Resin Garage Floor Installers

Choosing the right epoxy resin garage floor installers near me for your project is an important step to a successful finished product. There is more to the decision than simply Googling “epoxy contractors near me.” A lot of time, effort and money goes into this type of work, and homeowners deserve the best service that they can find for the price that they pay. Researching installers involves looking at customer feedback, price comparisons, certifications, and availability of insurance coverage.

Before applying any epoxy to your garage floor, you should clean the area using a leaf blower, broom or a shop vacuum. The concrete should be free of dirt, oil residue, and grease. After cleaning the surface, you should then use a degreaser to remove any remaining grease from the concrete. This will ensure that the epoxy will bond well with the concrete. It is also a good idea to repair any cracks or potholes at this time.

Once the floor is completely dry, it is ready for the base coat of epoxy. This is applied in 1010 foot sections as if it were a paint job. After the first coat is applied, it will need to dry for approximately 24 hours. A clear top coat can be added for enhanced durability. Adding this layer will make it harder for scratches to penetrate the color base coat, and most of them will remain in the clear coating instead of reaching the concrete.

After the base coat has dried, you can add your choice of colored flakes to the epoxy. These can be broadcast or poured onto the epoxy. It is recommended that you do a small area at a time to ensure even distribution. After distributing the flakes, you should then roll on a second coat of the clear epoxy. This will help to protect the flakes and provide a sleek finish to your garage floor.

The installation process is lengthy, and it is important to choose an experienced contractor to handle the job. This will reduce your stress, and ensure that the results are high-quality. In addition, you should be sure that the contractor has experience working on different types of floors.

Once the flooring is installed, it is a good idea to wait a full week before you drive or park in your garage again. The resin needs this time to fully cure. It is best to avoid exposing the new surface to water or other contaminants during this time, as these will cause the epoxy to peel or damage. This will prevent the risk of rust or corrosion in the future. It is also a good idea to keep your cars covered during this period. This will protect them from dripping chemicals that may spill.

Epoxy House Flooring: Transforming Homes with Style and Durability

House Flooring epoxy is a good choice for your home floor because it is durable, easy to clean, and has many aesthetic options. In addition, it is much less expensive than tile and can be used on most existing surfaces. It also protects against water infiltration and limits the development of mold. This makes it an excellent choice for kitchen floors, where food is prepared and spills are often made. There are several different options available, including decorative textures, stone, elements, and stratus. The key is to find a style that fits your personal design preferences and blends in with the rest of your home.

Epoxy can be installed on wood, metal, or concrete. It is an ideal solution for garages, workshops, and storage areas. Unlike tiles, which have grout lines that visually break up a floor, epoxy can make a floor look bigger and more seamless. It is also a great option for people with allergies because it does not harbor dirt and dust. It can even be applied over old paint and carpet. It is important to choose an epoxy that is rated for the amount of traffic you are going to have in your shop or garage. There are many different levels of epoxy that you can choose from, and each one has its own benefits and drawbacks.

When choosing an epoxy, it is important to know your budget. Some products require multiple coats and can be costly. It is also important to choose a contractor that has experience installing residential epoxy. They should be able to answer your questions and provide examples of past work. In addition, it is important to choose a company that offers free on-site estimates and can handle the entire installation process from start to finish.

Before applying the epoxy warehouse flooring near me, it is important to etch the floor and repair any cracks or expansion joints. It is also necessary to vacuum the area and remove any debris before the epoxy is applied. The etching and vacuuming will help to create a bond between the surface and the epoxy. It is also important to select a quality product that is low VOC and contains UV blockers. VOC and UV rays can cause a variety of health issues, from eye irritation to respiratory problems.

The best way to select an epoxy is by asking for samples or visiting a showroom. This will allow you to see the colors and styles of the epoxy before you make your final decision. It is also important to ask your contractor about the products they use, and if they have a warranty. In addition, you should also ask the contractor if they have completed any projects in your area. If so, you may be able to visit and see the finished result for yourself.

Epoxy is a popular choice for homeowners because it offers a wide variety of color and texture choices, and it can be customized to fit your needs. It is also easier to clean than other types of floors, and it can be rolled out without having to install tiles or mats. It is also easy to maintain and can withstand heavy traffic and machinery.

Personal Aircraft Insurance coverage is an essential financial investment and a legal demand if you’re flying an aircraft. Nonetheless, an exclusive aircraft is just one of the most costly makers to guarantee, 2nd just to space shuttles and particular long-distance satellites.

How Lift Service Companies Can Benefit Your Business

A lift company is a business that specialises in the maintenance, repair and upgrade of a building’s elevators. They work with a property’s management to ensure that the lifts are running well and meet the minimum standards set by the city. They can also take on the responsibility of installing a new elevator for a building that doesn’t currently have one.

It’s important to find a lift company that has the right experience and expertise for your business. They should be able to manage your whole portfolio of lifts and understand the complexities that come with each type, regardless of the size or make. This will allow them to offer a complete maintenance service and be able to respond quickly to any emergency calls that may arise.

During a regular maintenance inspection, an engineer will inspect the lift’s mechanical components and carry out essential routine tasks, such as lubricating moving parts to reduce friction and wear and tear. This is vital for the longevity of your lifts and can help to avoid costly repairs down the line.

The right lift service companies will have engineers based locally to your site and be able to visit you promptly in the event of an emergency call. They should have an extensive parts inventory that is stored nearby to minimise the amount of time that your lifts are out of action. This can be a significant factor for any business that relies heavily on its lifts to carry out their day-to-day operations.

It’s also important to check the company’s reputation and customer reviews. A good lift company will have an excellent track record and be able to demonstrate their expertise and knowledge of the industry. They should also be able to provide references from other customers that use their services.

Some companies will install a lift to accommodate disabled or elderly visitors. This is a great way to boost the reputation of a business and show that they are committed to providing the best possible service to all customers, regardless of their mobility. However, if the lift is not properly maintained it could be a turn-off for any potential customers and can ultimately damage the brand.

Lifts are a huge investment for any business and need to be maintained regularly in order to keep them running smoothly and safely. If a lift is in poor condition it can leave a bad impression on customers and potentially deter them from visiting again, so it is crucial to choose the right maintenance company to maintain your lifts.

Choosing a lift maintenance provider can be tricky, but it’s worth taking the time to research and ask for recommendations from other businesses. It’s also important to compare costs and remember that you may end up paying more in the long run if you go with a cheaper company with less expertise. It’s also a good idea to read the contract carefully and make sure you are clear on what is and isn’t included.

Functional and Stylish: Designing a Family-Friendly Bathroom

Functional and Stylish: Designing a Family-Friendly Bathroom

A family bathroom can go one of two ways: a shared space that gets used by everyone or a kids’ room with separate sinks, toilets, and showers. These rooms need to be durable, easy to clean, and have enough storage to hold everything from towels and linens to toiletries and toys. They also need to be designed with safety in mind so children can get around the space without any risks like falls or accidents.

The first way to make a functional and stylish family bathroom is by creating a well-planned layout that maximizes space and makes it easy for each member of the family to access the items they need. This includes installing a vanity or shelving unit with ample space for each person to store their toiletries and towels. It’s also a good idea to install cabinets or shelves that are low enough for kids to reach and keep their belongings organized and out of the way.

Once the layout is set, you can use a mix of style elements to give this essential space some serious design appeal. For example, a fresh and fun paint color can instantly transform the look of a bathroom while adding a pop of personality. Decorative accents like wall art, area rugs, and pendant lights can add to the aesthetic and complement any décor. If you want to go further, opt for decorative shower curtain ideas that can add a touch of luxury to your bathroom.

It’s important to remember that a family bathroom bathroom remodel on a budget should always put function before style. After all, kids aren’t going to be content with a plain white bathroom that’s boring and sterile. Instead, use their interests to inspire your design choices and incorporate a few strategic playful elements into the space. For example, hanging a fun family photo in the kids’ bathroom can give the space a personal touch while a painted wooden peg rail blends into the wall panelling and adds extra hanging space for clothes and towels. A simple colour-coded ribbon system can be a quick and easy way to assign each child a hook for their own belongings.

Another way to keep a functional and stylish family bathroom is by using smart materials that help save water and are safe for kids to use. For example, low flow toilets and showerheads reduce the amount of water used per flush and provide an eco-friendly alternative to traditional fixtures. Water-efficient and kid-friendly features like this are easy to find and often cost less than you might think.

No matter how you approach your family bathroom, remember that it’s the little details that can turn a utilitarian space into a truly beautiful and comfortable retreat. By making thoughtful and practical choices, you can create a space that will be useful, comfortable, and well-used for years to come. So what are you waiting for?
