I have used Kipley Lytel as my wealth advisor for over eight years. Over that time, Kipley has been invaluable in helping me stay advised and in tune with my ever changing and sometimes complicated financial situation. As a trusted advisor, Kipley has always treated me with the highest regard and unmatched care. I have found his honesty and integrity in our business dealings to be unmatched. My financial situation has changed several times during our relationship. All the while Kipley has always been there to help me make well informed decisions about my financial life and future. His council has always been well researched, specific to my needs and effective. I highly recommend Kipley and his services without hesitation.

Kipley Lytel has been managing and growing my investment funds for the past 8 years. He has guided me carefully and competently. I've learned a lot. Now in October 2018, with the fall in the stock market, I'm cheerfully buying "stocks on sale..." And he's very entertaining as he teaches me about finance!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    'Pure' Asset-Based Fee Practice - A declining fee rate model We offer Free Complimentary Initial Portfolio Reviews. It is our goal to keep our "pure" fee-only practice competitive and we have found that that our clients understand the value-proposition between fees paid and the comprehensive financial, portfolio, retirement and estate planning services we continually provide. We also very much hope to have an opportunity to convey the value of our services to you. Our active advisory fees start at 1.0% of assets managed, declining to a low of 0.6% of assets for the highest net worth bracket of actively advised accounts (fee chart is provided at bottom of page). Studies show these advisory fees are approximately 30% lower on average than the overall financial advisory industry and are also in the bottom quartile for fee-based distribution for advisors. In fact, 25% of advisors charge more than 1.75%, while 30% charge more than 1.5% - which is exorbitant.* It is also important to recognize that industry research has shown that professional advisory services add value to client portfolios. For example, two different studies by both Evestnet & Vanguard found advisors beat market benchmarks by an average of +3% a year, with Evestnet finding tax benefits alone add up to more than +1% annually over the broad market (for 1995-2014 period). Similarly, the Vanguard study found advisors overall added +3% each year with portfolio construction, behavioral coaching (e.g. avoid emotional investment decisions like panic selling) and wealth management. Perhaps this added-value is why client satisfaction with financial advisors is amongst the highest relative to all of the industries monitored by the American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI).
