Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Are you a fee-only fiduciary?

    • Yes. According to the CFP® Board, “the fiduciary standard of care requires that a financial advisor act solely in the client’s best interest when offering personalized financial advice.” Each advisor with IMPACTfolio, LLC is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNERand required to follow the defined fiduciary standard of care.
  2. Are you located in Denver?

  3. What types of clients do you work with?

    • Our clients tend to be hard-working individuals who appreciate our business model, believe in impact investing, and have $500,000 to $4,000,000 of investable assets. We have designed our firm to cater to this niche and created a fee structure that reflects our value.  In order to deliver our high-service model, we will cap our client relationships for the entire firm. We believe this is the only way to provide quality over quantity.

  6. Do you sell insurance or any other products?

    • No, we do not. As a fee-only firm, we do not collect any commissions. We are only paid by our clients. We have purposefully chosen not to hold or maintain insurance licenses. However, we guide our clients on any gaps in relation to insurance planning during our financial planning process. If a policy needs to be placed, we can direct our clients to an outside insurance professional.

    • Once the initial process is completed and our clients have a solid financial foundation, they choose how often they would like for us to reach out to schedule a review meeting. At a minimum, we would like to schedule a review once a year. Most clients choose to schedule a review semi-annually, and a few choose to schedule a review quarterly.
