No hidden agenda.

No commissions

or kickbacks.

We match you with financial advisors who put your needs first.

Here's an Open Secret

Most financial advisors are not required by law to be "fiduciaries". In other words, they are not required to put your best interests above all else. We think that's insane, which is why we only work with the best.

My Financial Counsel only pairs you with advisors who are legally registered as fiduciaries and follow rigorous standards.

I truly did not understand that there were easy-to-find, hourly project-based financial advisors out there. We were overdue for this kind of check in.

LIZ, INDEPENDENT CONSULTANT, LEARN TO MAKE A PRODUCT

It was my first time talking to a financial planner who was a better fit for me.

If I hadn't secured my investments the way that he advised me to, I know I would have easily lost tens of thousands of dollars based on historical data.

DAVID, ENTREPRENEUR, COLLEGE ZOOM

As a busy founder running a company, I was blown away by the advisor they curated for me – a former CPA who not only specializes in tech clients but also has work experience at a startup and understands the investor perspective. Completely exceeded my requirements and expectations.

JAMES, CEO & FOUNDER, JOBSCAN

The advisors at my bank talked about country clubs and buying a 2nd home — we're talking about building our businesses and enjoying our family.

My Financial Counsel helped me discover a whole world of independent advisors who want to work with us and share our values. It was a breath of fresh air to speak to advisors I could relate to.

MARYAM, INDEPENDENT CONSULTANT, MOREFUL.LY

68% of MFC clients saved on expensive mistakes after a single session (meaning more resources for their businesses and families).

HANDPICKED FOR YOU

We know your financial decisions come down to a lot more than just how much money you have. MFC's matching process is built on over 20 different data points and hundreds of hours of matching experience. Our rigorous methodology will help you find a zero-commission financial advisor who specializes in the subjects that matter most.

LET US DO THE WORK

We know you're busy caring for your children or running your business, which is why matching doesn't mean handing you dozens of advisors to call line-by-line. Our custom-tailored process will send you a list of three advisors who are curated to match your needs. Less time, less worry, less stress.

FORGET THE DATA OVERLOAD

No need to worry about uploading your entire financial history before you talk to someone. Schedule time directly with the advisors you like on their calendar, and ask the advisor any questions you want during your commitment-free call.

CHOOSE A CUSTOM PLAN

Advice is not one-size-fits-all. MFC connects you with advisors who offer monthly, hourly, one-off, and project-based consultation. Whether you're looking to outsource asset management or get DIY advice on one subject, we’ll help you find it.

74% of clients we’ve matched had access to a financial advisor but never moved forward – until they used our service.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a fiduciary financial advisor? 

A fiduciary financial advisor must place the client’s best interest above all else. For example, if there were two identical investments, but the second one paid advisors a commission at the expense of higher transaction costs to the client, a non-fiduciary advisor could recommend the second. In contrast, a fiduciary advisor is legally prohibited from prioritizing their profits in such a way. My Financial Counsel will only match you with independent, fiduciary advisors.

What is a fee-only financial advisor?

Fee-only financial advisors are registered, fiduciary investment advisors who only receive compensation from their client. They have fewer conflicts of interest because do not receive commission for financial products. My Financial Counsel believes fee-only advisors are the true fiduciary advisors in the industry, and as such only matches you with fee-only advisors.

On average, how much will it cost to hire a financial advisor?

The cost of a financial advisor depends greatly on the complexity and duration of your engagement. For the fee-only advisors in our network, a one-off project for a specific goal or planning typically costs a flat fee of $1,000-$3,000. An ongoing financial advisory service typically has the same flat fee upfront, then a $150-$300 monthly subscription fee (asset management services may be a separate cost depending on the advisor). Some advisors also offer hourly advice sessions, ranging $200-$500 per hour, if you prefer to just get specific financial questions answered.

Do I have to shift my investments / assets to the advisor?

No. That’s the great thing about our network of advisors – they are flexible and will work with your preference. You have the choice of keeping your assets exactly where they are, or opt in for asset management service. Regardless of what you choose, your fiduciary advisor will prioritize your preferences and best interests.

How do I know if a financial advisor is right for me?

You may want a financial advisor if you’re undergoing or planning a big life change, such as having a baby, buying a house, taking care of aging parents, or starting a business. Having a professional build a comprehensive financial plan for you may help you lay future plans if you’re busy or want a professional opinion.

How does My Financial Counsel get paid?

Minimizing conflict of interest is of the utmost importance to us. Unlike many other advisor search platforms, we don’t do profit sharing or fees per lead. Instead, we charge vetted advisors a flat subscription fee to join our network. That allows us to truly focus on helping clients through the search process, without pressuring a match if it’s not the right fit.

High Standards Are Our Standard

Our Story

Before starting My Financial Counsel, I worked at a major commercial bank and fintech startup. Despite my 10 years of experience in the financial sector, I ran into all kinds of challenges when searching for a personal financial advisor who had my best interests at heart.

That's why I created My Financial Counsel — to help people find high-quality advisors who aren't trying to upsell products or live off sales commissions. At MFC, we'll only match you with fiduciary advisors who you can trust, and who will help you achieve your dreams and goals. No hidden agendas necessary.
