Find a Financial Advisor – Independent Fee-Only Financial Advisor Firms

Below is a list of some NAPFA fee-only financial advisers who have inspired me to join NAPFA and encouraged me to continue the fight for quality fiduciary financial advice. This is not a testimonial about them, nor has due diligence been done on these people, so this list is not something that you should rely on. Rather it is an expression of gratitude that these fellow NAPFA members have selflessly shared information about the profession of financial advising with me, encouraged me and inspired me. Some I know only from anonymous social conversations or from passive reading of their writings, others I am familiar with due to listening to their lectures, reading their books, etc. Thanks, NAPFA members, for inspiring me to think about the quality experience of fee-only planning versus commissioned financial advice. It has been said that if you can see what someone is reading then you can read their thoughts. Well an analogy would be that if you see a list of fellow NAPFA members that I am inspired by then you can get an idea of how I think.
