The Thayer Financial Difference

As Seen In:

What Makes Us Different

Not all financial advisors are created equal.

We are not brokers. We are not insurance agents. We are not contractors for an independent broker/dealer. Thayer Financial is a Registered Investment Adviser (RIA) that operates on a fee-only basis. This means that we are fully independent and have no hidden fees. We do not sell high-commission investment or insurance products, nor do we receive any commissions or kickbacks whatsoever for our recommendations. Surpringly, less than 2% of financial advisors in the US can call themselves fee-only advisors.

Instead, we are compensated through a transparent pricing structure that aligns our interests with yours. This means that our success is directly tied to your success – we only do better when you do better.

As a Fee-Only RIA, Thayer Financial is legally held to a FIDUCIARY standard 100% of the time.

No Pressure Educational Process

We understand that choosing the right financial advisor can be an overwhelming task, and we’re here to make that process as easy and transparent as possible. Our goal is to provide you with all the information you need to make an informed decision about working with us. We believe that you know what’s best for you and your family, so we’re committed to giving you an inside look at how we work and what we can do for you.

At Thayer Financial, we pride ourselves on being transparent and never pressuring you into any long-term commitments or investments. Our focus is on building a lifelong partnership with you based on trust, transparency, and mutual success. We believe that our approach will speak for itself and that you will see the value in working with us. However, if at any point you feel that we’re not the right fit for you, we respect your decision and will never pressure you to stay. Our commitment to you is that we’ll always be here when you need us.
