Become a “Silver rebel” client:
Our Silver rebel clients are on-going clients of our firm that receive the highest level of investment management and financial advice (short of formal financial planning and 3rd party resources). Our Silver rebel model is a unique service level that most companies do not offer because they fail to differentiate between client’s that want someone to help them with their investment management and general investment questions versus clients that want full-service financial planning. Ironically, most firms charge for the full-service model but actually give the vast majority of their clients a Silver service level and many more will only sell you a product, never to be heard from again… In recognition that many of our clients only need asset management and basic guidance, but still want the best service and support, we have created this plan to discount you for saving us the time and expense of creating a comprehensive financial plan while offering more service and choice than our eRebel service level.
If you are looking to hire a financial advisor/planner for the long-term, want us to directly manage your assets, want us to directly manage eligible employer plans, help you manage “held-away” accounts, assist you with basic planning/investment questions, and/or make it very easy to upgrade to Gold when you are ready then this plan is for you.
What is included as a Silver rebel Client?
All services below are available to our Silver rebel Clients:
- Manage Investments Directly: We watch your investments closely and manage with discretion per your investment objectives. You must use one of our preferred custodians.
- This also includes employer accounts through TIAA CREF & Fidelity, if eligible at your employer.
- Tax Loss/Gain Harvesting: In coordination with your tax professional, we will try to maximize realizing gains and losses in your portfolio at advantageous times.
- Online Access to your rFPW: You have access to all of your financial information and living financial plan.
- 24/7 Access to Financial Advice: We will always take questions from you to help you streamline your financial situation.
- Management of held-away assets: Accounts not directly held with our custodians.*
- 2 OnDemand Meetings: To review your progress and performance.**
- Fee-Waiver for Business Services: Up to two quarters of advisory AUM fee-waiver to reimburse any business services elected.
- Ability to upgrade to our Gold rebel: You may upgrade at anytime without loss of continuity or any data.***
* You must use LastPass, comply with our policy of non-custody, and hold all other available assets with us that are reasonably possible.
**Must be at our office or a webconference.
***Once you have utilized financial planning services, you must remain a Gold rebel client for at least 24 months.
How much does it cost?
The cost is $75/mo. plus our asset management fee schedules below. This subscription fee is currently waived if you have more than $250,000 in Assets Under Management (AUM):
rF Fee Schedules:
* Preferred Custodians for NQ and IRA Accounts include TD Ameritrade, Jefferson National, and TIAA CREF.
** Discounts may be applied where applicable and when warranted, at the discretion of rebel Financial LLC.
So, for example:
- You have $100,000 in AUM in a University 403b with TIAA CREF then you would pay:
- $75/mo. via PayPal from any credit card, checking, or savings account of your preference.
- Plus 0.7% of $100,000 out of your accounts, which comes to $175 deducted quarterly.***
- You , as a household, keep $750,000 in AUM in various accounts through TD Ameritrade then you would pay:
- 0.7% of $750,000 out of your accounts, which comes to $1,500.00 deducted quarterly.***
***This is an example for illustrative purposes only and your account value(s) will fluctuate over the year giving slightly different charges based on market performance.
At this service level our only requirement is that you must have at least one account held with us through any of our preferred custodians and there are no minimum asset levels, which is why we have the monthly charge so that we never have to turn away clients that want/need help.
