"Restructuring von Borstel & Associates as an RIA enables us to align the firm's structure with what we have believed since the firm started, 'Always do what is right for our clients.'"
PORTLAND, OR, August 11, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Wayne von Borstel, president and founder of von Borstel & Associates, Inc., today announced the launch of von Borstel & Associates, Inc. as an independent registered investment advisory firm (RIA).
The firm, which has been in practice for over thirty-five years, has restructured to provide fee-only financial planning and investment management services to clients residing in any state from office locations in Portland and The Dalles, Oregon.
The fee-only compensation model is regarded in the industry as the most objective of investment advice models. Fees are transparent and based on assets under management, not on product sales. This method of compensation serves to minimize conflicts and positions the financial planner as their clients' fiduciary.
"Restructuring von Borstel & Associates as an RIA enables us to align the firm's structure with what we have believed since the firm started, 'Always do what is right for our clients,'" said von Borstel. "Our clients will benefit from knowing our relationship is not based on commissions. Any investment recommendations or financial-planning decisions we make are in our clients' best interest and financial well-being."
von Borstel and Associates embrace their fiduciary responsibilities and look forward to providing their clients with financial planning, retirement planning, estate planning, charitable giving, and wealth management services as a fee-only RIA.
