Welcome to Meridian Financial Advisors
We are Fee Only Fiduciary Advisors
We are independent fee-only fiduciary advisors because we believe it is the best and most honest way to serve our clients. We refuse all conflicts of interest and commissions so that we can provide the ideal financial advice for your unique situation.
Unbiased, Qualified Advice
Our fee-only approach is designed to give you peace of mind and allow us to build a deeper relationship of trust so that together we can address all areas of your financial life and not just your investment portfolio.
We have operated as fee-only advisors since 1993 because we believe it is the best business model to serve clients and help them reach their goals.
Unlike many advisors, we are obligated by law and oath to avoid all conflicts of interest, like kickbacks and commissions for recommending certain financial products. As fiduciaries, we must always recommend what we believe are the ideal financial solutions for your unique situation, while other non-fiduciary advisors are only held to a “suitability” standard for their recommendations.
Since we’re only compensated by you, our client, you can trust that we’re on your side doing all we can to help you grow your investments, resolve your financial challenges, and reach your most important life goals.
