At Soesbe Financial, we believe that in order for Clients to be able to make an informed decision about our services, they should know what they are paying for and how much it costs.
We see nothing useful to be accomplished in being coy or obfuscating when it comes to pricing – we prefer the direct and open approach.
To that end, we offer our Transparent Pricing promise: we will always have our most current service pricing clearly available on our website. Clients may also contact us by their preferred method at any time to inquire more directly and we will always provide them with our current fee schedule.

Standalone Financial Planning is offered on a fixed fee basis. The fee is based on the complexity of the engagement and needs of the Client.
NOTES: No follow up is included in this service and all time spent after the end is billed as Focused Financial Advice at $300/hr. Clients who chose stand-alone planning can, at the end of the engagement, upgrade to the Ongoing service.

Switching from Standalone to Ongoing service at end of Standalone engagement:
Q: I think I’m going to need some extra help and advice going forward, can I switch from my Standalone Financial Planning engagement to Ongoing Comprehensive Planning?
A: Absolutely! All you need to do is let us know you want to switch, and simply pay the monthly OCP fee going forward.
(Please note that your initial Ongoing Comprehensive Planning contract will be 12 months; after that your contract will renew monthly until you decide to cancel.)
The concept is simple: if at the end of your Standalone engagement you would like to continue working with Soesbe Financial, all you have to do is pay the Ongoing monthly fee.
Generally, this will be a one-time meeting of 1-2 hours, with no long-term planning or forward-looking projections; information/advice only. See our full service description for details.
This service is offered on a standard hourly basis, billed in 6 minute increments. The planner’s current rates are $300 per hour.

1 – Plus any hours accrued ($250/hr) in addition to the max
2 – Maximum number of hours is based on $250 hourly billing rate
3 – Requires 12-month contract which is automatically renewable monthly after that. Cancellation requires 30-day notice (no pro-rating of partial month), and any time accrued at the time of the cancellation in excess of the contracted price is billed at $250 per hour and due at the termination of the contract.
4 – Monthly fee commences upon the second month of the engagement (i.e. all the up front planning is done in the first month)
5 – Additional hours are billed at $250 per hour, billed at the end of the contract year. Ongoing clients receive a quarterly statement of time spent YTD with time remaining for the year, so they are aware if they are about to go over.
