Fee-Only Financial Planners—

YOU are at the core of all we do.

Fee Only means you first

Reasons why 90% of our clients are still with us:


“EVO is different. It’s a core value. It’s transparency. They never passed any judgements on our lives or our money. They were most interested in our goals and how we navigate there.”

– Mary, Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist, Phd,
Client since 2011

“I started managing the money received from the sale of our company myself, but quickly realized I didn’t want to do it. I needed professionals to help. I implicitly trust EVO. They’ve been successful and create success for others.”

– Randy, IT Entrepreneur,
Client since 2011



“We signed on because our life was getting complicated. I knew we needed a little more help than when we just had a 401K. It helps to have another set of eyes you can trust on something this complicated.”

– Joanna, Senior Digital Executive,
Client since 2010

Our Focus—

EVOadvisers traces its roots back to 2006. After a combined 30 years as senior leaders in technology and finance at a Fortune 50 company, we joined forces to form a new kind of Fee-Only financial advisory firm to serve people better.


Our clients trust in what we do.

After 13 years working with our clients, over 90% are still with us and most of our new clients are people they have referred to us. In fact, it is an even bigger compliment when our clients ask us to help their moms. We love that.

We only work for you and your needs. We do not accept sales commissions, like 97% of other advisors do.

We feel accepting sales commissions leads to unacceptable conflicts of interest. We call our straightforward approach “You-Only Advice®,” and it is anchored in our Capitalism with a Conscience philosophy.

So whatever your personal financial goals, we believe it’s important for you to get started, even if you don’t choose us.

"If your 401(k) account balance is more than $5,000, you don't have to take it with you right away. It's a better idea to wait until you're ready to roll that money into an IRA, since many employees don't roll their cash into a new plan immediately and could miss out on some of a market rebound."

"Your 401(k) is already a tax-deferred vehicle. It kills me when we see an annuity in a tax-deferred IRA because you doubled up."

“Establish a ‘cash bucket’ to help cover any emergency needs. You could refill the bucket occasionally at your discretion—when it’s getting low and when your investment account is relatively high.”
