Towerpoint Wealth’s Ideal Client / Professional Fees
Clients of Towerpoint Wealth come from various backgrounds, but all share a common goal–to grow and preserve their wealth, and to either achieve, or maintain, their financial independence. We believe most of our clients value what money can do for them, but do not have the time, depth of knowledge, or interest to properly coordinate all of their financial affairs, research their own investments, or design a successful longer-term financial plan. Instead, they seek a team of professionals that can help them make objective and smart decisions about their financial future. Our clients include pre-retirees, retirees, business owners, corporate executives, industry professionals, and individuals who have recently experienced a significant life event, such as the death of a spouse, a divorce, or a job or career change.

Wealth Management Fees
Towerpoint Wealth offers professional wealth management planning, counsel, and service for an annual asset-based fee, based on the amount of assets under the Firm’s management. This management fee is generally determined in accordance with the following blended fee schedule:
The annual fee is prorated and charged quarterly, in advance, based upon the market value of the assets being managed by Towerpoint Wealth on the last day of the previous billing period. If assets in excess of $50,000 are deposited into or withdrawn from an account after the inception of a billing period, the fee payable with respect to such assets is adjusted to reflect the interim change in portfolio value. For the initial period of an engagement, the fee is calculated on a pro rata basis. In the event the advisory agreement is terminated, the fee for the final billing period is prorated through the effective date of the termination and the outstanding or unearned portion of the fee is charged or refunded to the client, as appropriate. Additionally, for asset management services the Firm provides with respect to certain client holdings (e.g., held-away assets, accommodation accounts, alternative investments, etc.), Towerpoint Wealth may negotiate a fee rate that differs from the range set forth above.
