Family Business Financial Planning

Serving the St. Louis Region


"Family businesses are critical to the economy and should be protected as the valuable
assets they are."

Owning a family business takes hard work and dedication, and you deserve a financial advisor who is just as dedicated to your business as you are. Someone who is qualified to roll up their sleeves, facilitate difficult conversations, and assist with both family finances and business financial planning.
We’re passionate about helping family businesses craft a financial plan and succession strategy that considers their family’s needs while also protecting their business’s needs. This includes:
Our focus is on helping business owners grow, manage, and transition their family businesses for continued success.

Our Approach to Family Business Financial Planning:

1. Business Strategy

We help your business develop strategies for stability and growth, including defining short and long-term goals for your family business.

2. Communication

Communication during family business planning can be especially difficult. We help lead hard conversations surrounding family business planning to mitigate conflict.

3. Long-term Goals

As a family business owner, you might feel like you can never retire. We help you plan for your retirement and develop an exit or succession plan so that you can retire without worry.

4. Long-term Relationship

We’re here when you need us. Meet with us at a frequency that works for your business—or don’t, and still feel good knowing your retirement is still in good hands.

What is a Fee-Only Financial Advisor?

Serving Your Best Interest
As a fee-only financial advisory practice, we have committed to only being compensated by our clients. In other words, we don’t accept fees or commissions from the sale of financial products. We’re only paid by our clients, which mitigates potential conflicts of interest.
We are also bound by the fiduciary standard, a legal obligation to always put the interest of our clients above our own – and we take these obligations very seriously.
It’s an honor to work with our clients and to build lifelong relationships. This fee structure allows us to continually work in a way that’s truly best for you.

Our Fees

That being said, our fees are very straightforward. There’s no catch and no fine print, we believe in making it easy for everyone to understand.

Annual Advisory Fee


Our annual advisory fee is assessed quarterly based on the market value of your assets under management. We work independently with Charles Schwab – so you can have peace of mind knowing your money stays safe with an established institution you can trust.

Integrated, Add-on Business Services

In addition to our comprehensive personal wealth management service offering, we offer integrated, add-on Business Services for our family business clients for a simple hourly rate.

Business Services Pricing


Our optional, add-on Business Services are offered to our clients through Toberman Management Consulting, LLC to help them grow the value of their business.
