Why we think Opus Wealth Management is different


One of our core values is education. After all, nobody is better equipped to make decisions for your family than you…armed with the right facts.

We might be a good fit for each other if….

  • You want to work in the spirit of a collaborative partnership – we are nice people, and we want to work with nice people!
  • You want to delegate the majority of your wealth management task list to a comprehensive team
  • Absolute independence and objectivity are important to you
  • You have a minimum ~$2 million of assets to manage or “line of sight” to get there
  • You look at your investment advisor not as a “lottery ticket” but to bring you a disciplined, “value investing” process
  • And…while we can do simple, we shine in the world of coordinating sophisticated cross-disciplinary advice

Planning Fees

We have a wide range of planning fees we charge. From a nominal amount for a small project to six figures for a complex, multi-year engagement (usually business owner related). Our planning fee will be based on the complexity, time and value-add involved and you will have a crystal-clear idea of what it is before we ever asked to be hired.

Investment Fees

We charge on a percentage of assets basis. Our highest fee is .97% and it scales down from there. We are happy to send you our declining fee schedule upon request. Unlike many firms, when you grow into a new tier, we charge your new, lower fee on your entire portfolio so that you don’t need to pull out a calculator to know what your fee is.
