What is a “fee-only” Investment Advisor?
Fee-only investment advisors serve clients by offering investment advice and portfolio management in exchange for a pre-determined, mutually agreed upon fee. We charge a percentage of assets under management, aligning our interests with yours.
No. Brokers are licensed to sell securities and are paid a commission based on the volume and type of securities they sell. Any advice that they provide must be incidental to the sale of securities or products.
A fiduciary is required by law to put your best interests first without exception. Brokers are generally not fiduciaries and may not necessarily have YOUR best interests at heart.
What does it mean to have discretion?
By granting discretion you allow Denali the ability to make specific decisions about the purchase and sale of individual securities without first receiving your consent on a trade-by-trade basis.

Will Denali hold my money or investments?
No. We will not custody your money or investments under any circumstance.
How often will I get statements regarding my investments?
