What’s the minimum someone would need to work with Meredith Wealth?

Meredith Wealth does not have a minimum account size since our firm does not bill clients based on the size of their portfolio. Every situation is unique; however, we are cognizant of the $6,000 annual fee and its impact on a client’s overall financial plan. We encourage anyone interested to schedule an introductory call and we can discuss if we are a good fit.

What happens to my investment accounts if I became a client?

Before any changes are made to your existing investments, we first analyze the positions in detail and provide an outline of what advice we would recommend should you become a client. We custody client assets at Charles Schwab & Co.

How often do you meet with clients?

Our flat annual fee of $6,000 is all-encompassing meaning that there is no limit to how many times we meet or talk each year. Generally, we have 2 meetings each year for review of investment performance and financial topics. Some years have more contact due to life events occurring.
