Questions

Why do I need professional management?
Many investors have succesfully managed their portfolios over the years, growing them from a few thousand dollars, to hundreds of thousands, or perhaps even more today. But as your assets have become a significant sum, and you have a lot more at stake, managing your portfolio may not be quite as easy. You may realize that you should make some changes to your portfolio, but find that you are unable to “pull the trigger.” And as we get older, knowing that our spouse will be well taken care of if we are no longer able to manage our financial affairs offers priceless peace of mind.

Do you earn any comissions from trading my account?
No. Bowers Wealth is a fee-only investment advisor. The only income we receive is from a management fee that is a percentage of your assets. That way we share the same goal of growing your assets without taking undue risks or engaing in unnecessary trading.

What are your fees?
We always look for value in the investments we make. You should expect no less in the services we offer you, so we keep our fees modest, and as your assets grow, your fee rate declines.

Management Fee Schedule as a Percent of Assets
1.20% for the first $100,000
1.00% for the next $100,000
0.80% for the next $100,000
0.60% for the next $100,000
0.40% on assets over $400,000
If you engage Bowers Wealth all you do is give us authority to trade on your behalf within your accounts (we cannot remove any money from your accounts). All your accounts and assets remain with you at Fidelity. And Fidelity will send you separate confirmations of any trades we make for you.

Why do you use Fidelity funds?

How do you decide how to invest my portfolio?

Once we have a clear understanding of your needs, we will recommend a portfolio strategy we believe is the best fit for accomplishing your goals within your risk tolerance (both emotional and financial). We will not make any trades in your account until we agree on that strategy. We will regularly stay in contact with you to make sure that your strategy remains consistant with your objectives, should there be any changes in your situation.
