Fully Transparent Fees and Expenses

Fully Transparent Fees and Expenses

There is a big difference between an honest advisor and a transparent one.  According to Merriam-Webster, honest is “free from fraud or deception.” An honest advisor will answer your questions truthfully when asked.  A transparent advisor on the other hand, will inform you of exactly what fees and expenses you will be paying - without being asked.  The Means Team prides itself on being transparent.
