It's Not Just Money, Inc. has several retainer arrangements available to allow clients to choose a package of services that meets their needs. To allow our clients to get the maximum attention for the services they choose, we do not work strictly on an hourly basis.

Standard Retainer

We strongly feel that this is the best retainer for most clients. This retainer establishes a relationship where the clients receive the full benefits of the services we have available. A client generally meets with their planner six to eight times per year during the first two years, depending on the complexity of their situation, to create and begin implementation of their comprehensive plan. The areas covered include:

  • Tax Planning
  • Individual Income Tax Return Preparation
  • Retirement Planning
  • Review of Insurance Coverage and Needs
  • Estate Planning-Will and Health Power of Attorney
  • Investment Portfolio Review
  • Budgeting and Record Keeping
  • Goal Setting
  • Asset Allocation and Investment Implementation
  • General Financial Planning

    This retainer is open ended, which means that there is not a limited number of appointments or amount of time for each item. Clients may schedule additional appointments or call for information between appointments on the topics listed above. This allows them to deal with changes without an added charge. Because much information is gathered and processed during the first year, the retainer for the first two years may be larger than subsequent years. Standard Retainers range in cost from $2,500 to $25,000 for the first year with subsequent years ranging from $2,000 to $20,000. The cost is determined specifically for each client and depends on the complexity of the client's situation.

    Investment Retainer

    Some clients only want management of their investments without comprehensive planning. For a limited number of clients It's Not Just Money, Inc. will manage a client's investment portfolio without comprehensive planning. This would include investment recommendations and the monitoring of the client's investable assets, including assets such as 401ks. As with the Standard Retainer, this does not limit the number of appointments or calls available to the client in regard to their assets, nor does it limit the number of hours the planner will spend on recommendations and asset monitoring. This retainer does not, however, include other financial services available through the firm. The cost of these retainers is determined based on the existing and potential investments for each client and will generally be between $2,000 and $20,000 annually.

    Project Retainer

    When a Standard Retainer has more services than a client wants, we can customize a retainer to include only the services they want. They can choose from the services offered in the Standard Retainer for a predetermined annual fee. These fees will range from $2,000 to $20,000. Clients may upgrade from this retainer to a Standard Retainer within one year of the original contract and apply the fee toward the Standard Retainer.
