No call centers to worry about. Instead, you’ll have a dedicated relationship with your personal CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNERⓇ who is supported by a team of in-house experts.
Transparent, Flat-Fee Pricing
We charge a flat, annual fee tailored to you and the services we are providing. We aren’t compensated based on the assets you invest, so your fee doesn’t increase when your assets increase.
A “fiduciary” must act in your best interest at all times. All Facet planners are CFPⓇ professionals—and fiduciaries—and will always provide financial advice that is in your best interest.
All of your financial data, in one secure and easily accessible place. Snapshots of your financial life displayed in a helpful dashboard so you have a clear picture of your finances at your fingertips.
Intuitive & Simple Plans
We have reimagined the planning process and have created plans that are simple, actionable, and—most importantly—designed for you. Your plan will grow and change alongside you.
Holistic Financial Life Management
Your financial life needs more than just asset management so your dedicated planner will support all of your needs through a custom, dynamic plan, designed to help you achieve your goals.

Facet charges a flat, annual planning fee that is based on the services needed to help you achieve your goals. At Facet, we believe a flat annual fee that is not tied to your assets better aligns your CFP® professional with you and your goals. The flat fee ranges from $1,800 to $6,000. You will work with a member of our team to determine the right services and the appropriate fee for your situation.
To help you decide if Facet is the right choice for you we go through a 3 step process:
1 – 15 minute introductory phone call to discuss your goals, what matters most, and what type of relationship you are
looking for—a member of our team will walk you through how we work with clients and what the next steps are.
2 – 45 minute discovery session with your client success manager to discuss what services make sense for your family
and to determine the appropriate fee. There is no charge or obligation for this goal-setting discovery session—we want you to have the time to make sure this is the right fit.
3 – If and when you are ready, sign up and we can start planning your future!
Facet’s clients work with a dedicated CFP® professional to form a personal relationship built on trust. We understand that finances can be a very personal matter, and, at Facet, you will have a planner who knows you and your goals and can develop your personalized plan while maintaining their fiduciary responsibility to you. Though we are headquartered in Baltimore, Maryland, our CFP® Professionals work with clients nationwide via videoconference. This helps foster a personal relationship, allows for a collaborative planning experience, and makes the planning process convenient for you.
