Let’s Get Started!

Schedule a complimentary initial call below. This will give us a chance to determine if One Degree can provide the solutions you are looking for.

Is One Degree right for me?

Our clients desire to improve their financial and family life. They appreciate collaboration and professional expertise. They’re often business owners, successful professionals, high earners, and/or accomplished savers. While they may retire from a career, they continue pursuing purpose and fulfillment. One Degree Advisors may be a good fit for you if you value:

  • a trusted relationship and professional expertise
  • delegating financial management to free you up
  • guidance through a life transition
  • transferring wisdom before wealth to the next generation
  • integrating biblical principles into your decision-making
  • leveraging money as a tool to accomplish your goals and make an impact

Listen

We learn about your family,
priorities and values.

During this brief call we determine if One Degree can provide the solutions you are looking for. If we can’t help you, we will try and provide resources you may find beneficial.

The focus of this meeting is for us to get to know each other a little better. If we can help, we’ll discuss how we can provide value and the best path forward along with a transparent fee schedule.

It’s time to get to work and begin gathering important data to build your financial plan and investment blueprint. We will collaborate to identify priorities, concerns and what you want to achieve.

Plan

We develop a plan and help
you put it in motion.

This is where your financial and investment plan come to life. Your advisor will share projections and present strategies directly addressing your priorities, goals, and even things you may not be thinking about.

A plan is valuable only if it is realistic and actionable. Our team will work with you to ensure your financial and investment plans are moving forward.

Guide

We monitor the plan and
adjust as your life changes.

Financial planning is not a one-time event but rather a dynamic process to adapt as life changes. Investment strategies are coordinated with your financial plan. We provide the guidance through regular meetings and conversations to help you cut through the noise and make confident financial decisions!

Frequently Asked Questions

As CFP® professionals, we are held to the fiduciary standard for financial planning and investment management. This is the highest standard of client care and means we place the interest of our clients ahead of our own. For more information on the fiduciary standard, you can visit the CFP Board website.

When selecting a financial planner, how do you know you have chosen someone who is qualified, competent, and will ethically help you plan your future?
Most people think that all financial planners are ‘certified,’ but this is not the case. Only those who meet strict education, examination, experience, and ethical requirements are allowed to use the CFP® certification marks. You can have added confidence the person you choose to help you plan your future is qualified if you choose a CFP® professional.

While headquartered in Southern California, we work with clients all across the country. Every client enjoys the same quality experience by leveraging technology. Phone and video conferences, computer screen sharing, and secure online document storage allow for a seamless experience. We utilize state of the art planning software that allows our clients to see plan projections and the effects of various scenarios to guide confident decision-making wherever they may live.

We are compensated through fees for financial planning and investment management services. Payment may occur through a percentage of assets under management and/or flat planning fees for the work we complete for you. If applicable, we also help you secure appropriate insurance tools by independently shopping the marketplace. (In some cases, we may be compensated by the company.)

After meeting together and determining if we will be a good match, we will outline a transparent fee schedule.
