BlueSky Flat Fee℠
Our proprietary pricing structure is created on the belief that an advisory fee should be based on the value we provide, not just on the assets we manage.
Why a flat fee?
BlueSky uses a flat fee, based on your level of complexity. We think the fee you pay for planning and management should be based not just on the amount of money you have, but the complexity of your situation, your individual needs, and the value we can provide. Sometimes the size of a client’s investment account belies the complexity of the situation, and yet other times clients with large balances have relatively straightforward needs. To solve this inequity, we provide a service level based on your unique situation and level of complexity. As your circumstances change throughout the years you work with us, your service level may be adjusted up or down to reflect your changing needs.While our fee is not based on your level of assets, our services are particularly cost-effective for those who have a net worth of over $1 million and desire day-to-day management of their financials.
How is your flat fee calculated?
Complexity ---> Fee ---> Service Level. Your fee and service level are determined by using our proprietary method of calculating the numerous factors of your financial life and then applying them to the following variables: your stage of life, income, portfolio complexity, net worth, and planning complexities.
What is your stage of life?
If you are a retiree that is looking to maintain a certain level of lifestyle, your needs will not be the same as those of an individual in their middle earning years with a high tax bracket and multiple children needing college planning.
What is your portfolio complexity?
Our fee structure also takes into account the many factors that add to the complexity of managing our client's investments. For example, the number of accounts, how the portfolio positions are structured, the types of accounts being managed, multiple tax implications, and frequency of transactions.
How do you earn your income?
If you are a high earning executive, or a successful business owner, your needs will be factored differently than those of a young professional who is starting to navigate the opportunities to grow their wealth.
