Our Services

Our goal is to provide you with a variety of investment and financial planning solutions that are custom to your needs and the current market conditions. We are strategy-driven, not product-driven. We implement quality investments regardless of brand name. We work on your behalf to curate and implement a plan for your financial freedom – however it may look for you.


Our team of advisors, which includes three CFP® professionals, can design a personalized financial plan for you and your family. This collaborative process starts with a conversation and learning what is important to you. We will work with you to implement the steps toward your goals and retirement planning. With a clear plan in place, we are there to meet regularly, adjust accordingly and monitor every step of the way.

Next, we will asses your risk tolerance and tax situation. Finally, our investment professionals, including our in-house CFA, will present a portfolio proposal that fits your needs.

Investment Advisory Services

What is an advisory account?

In an advisory account, we act in a fiduciary capacity, bound to act in your best interest, and charge a fee based on a percentage of the assets under management. Assets are monitored on an ongoing basis and the model portfolios are custom curated and regularly rebalanced. 

What to expect in an advisory relationship?

Johlfs Wealth Management is a full-service investment firm. Depending on your needs, investment objectives and overall goals, we may assist you with brokerage services, investment advisory services, or in many cases - both. There are important differences to each including cost and the services we provide. Choosing the right investment accounts are a personal choice and your options should be taken seriously. 

Advisory Cost Structure

Our compensation is based on an annual advisory management cost. We use a tiered cost structure where the annual management cost declines as the assets under management increases (see chart). This is an all-inclusive benefit; The annual advisory management cost covers comprehensive financial planning by a CFP® professional, comprehensive investment management by a CFA charter holder, and our gold-standard client service model – an unparalleled value proposition.

Cash Solutions

As investors, we often view our investment and bank accounts separately. However, we do not have to. There are many solutions available at LPL Financial that you can leverage to do things you may ordinarily associate only with your bank accounts:

  • Earn interest on your uninvested cash using FDIC insured cash sweeps.
  • Perform common financial transactions: write checks, set up auto bill pay, withdraw cash, or make purchases with a debit or credit card.
  • Use your non-qualified investment account as collateral for a loan.
