Become a Gold rebel client:
Of all the services that we offer only our Gold rebel clients are Full-Service clients of our firm. Our Gold rebel service model is our highest level of service and probably the best value option because it includes so many services. As such, we limit our Full-Service Clients to only 300 households so that we can always provide the high level of service that we’ve promised.
If you are looking to hire a financial advisor/planner for the long-term, want us to directly manage all of your assets, want a comprehensive plan, for us to help you implement everything, and/or want the highest level of service then this plan is for you.
What is included as a Gold rebel client?
All service available from our other plans plus a few more:

- Comprehensive Financial Planning: Including Education, Retirement, Executive, Business, and Estate Planning.
- Manage Investments Directly: We watch your investments closely and manage with discretion per your investment objectives. You may use any custodian that you prefer, however, most of our Gold clients prefer to use preferred custodians because of the inherent cost savings.

How much does it cost?
The cost is $125/mo. plus our asset management fee schedules below. This subscription fee is currently waived if you have more than $250,000 in AUM:
rF Fee Schedules:

- $125/mo. via PayPal from any credit card, checking, or savings account of your preference.
- Plus 1% of $100,000 out your accounts, which comes to $250 deducted quarterly.+
- You , as a household, keep 750,000 in AUM in various accounts through TD Ameritrade then you would pay:
- 1% of $750,000 out of your accounts, which comes to $1,875.00 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.
