Structure & Fees
We are primarily fee-based and don’t earn commission
Our fee is primarily based on the assets we actively manage on your behalf. This includes unlimited access to our team and covers our comprehensive, holistic approach to wealth management. This fee structure is one way we distinguish ourselves from other wealth management firms, and we believe it allows us to service our clients in the most effective and efficient way.
We do not sell products
We are not insurance agents, nor are we affiliated with any insurance carriers. We are a neutral resource and we don’t sell products or force you to use particular outside sources. You can rest assured that we will not expect you to replace any current services you are happy with. Our role is to work with you proactively to make sure that all of your external agents are coordinated and working in your best interest.
Above and beyond client care
A key trait that distinguishes John G. Ullman & Associates is our tendency to go above and beyond for our clients. Due to the confidential, personal nature of our relationships, it only makes sense that we are considered a trusted resource. We take great pride in providing assistance and peace of mind, which far exceeds the traditional role of a Financial Advisor. Financial planning is just the start of what we offer. Our clients routinely tell us that no other firm provides the comprehensive care we do – from tax preparation to insurance reviews; banking assistance to legal referrals; mortgage advice to new car shopping…there’s no question that our financial management relationship goes far beyond daily investing tasks.
Our client model is unique: when you join John G. Ullman & Associates, we are available to your family as well. We understand that financial management and investing is not about one person, but about the ones that mean the most.
Our confidentiality guarantee
Trust is imperative to our success; therefore, strict confidentiality is of the highest importance to us. Through the services we provide for clients and the deeply private nature of the information we are entrusted with, relationships are established with our clients that can only survive with the understanding that the information acquired, and even the existence of the relationships themselves, will be kept confidential. Your and your family’s information is never shared. And should your family utilize our services through your relationship with us, individual information will never be discussed with other family members without permission.
