Bay Area Planners banner


When you select CollegeMoneyCoach for advice, even for a very limited engagement, the breadth and depth of our discussion constitutes financial planning. As a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional, I adhere to the CFP Board's Standards of Professional Conduct, including the duty of care of a fiduciary: a duty to act in your best interest and to put your interests ahead of my own. The Standards of Professional Conduct require that I define the scope of the engagement, disclose any conflicts of interest, and provide details of my compensation.

I am a Fee-Only planner – all my compensation comes from clients in the form of fixed, flat or hourly fees. I receive no commissions, bonuses, or kickbacks from financial service providers.

Conflicts of Interest:
I will inform you of any potential conflicts of interest in our relationship. There are no limitations placed by others on the advice I am able to give you. You will work with me only; I do not subcontract to other advisors.

Cost of services:
The only cost to you is the fee stated in the engagement letter.


If you are not 100% satisfied with the services rendered, and if I am unable to remedy the complaint to your satisfaction, I will immediately refund the fee paid. The refund of any fees will immediately terminate the agreement.
