Our Fees

Our goal is to provide complete fee transparency.

I believe that comprehensive financial planning is about one-on-one relationships, and if you don’t connect with your advisor, you’ll never have the comfort level necessary to put the ball in their hands. I want my clients to understand exactly how we generate their fees and how we price our services at Gary Alpert & Associates. This policy allows you the freedom to select the services and investment tools best-suited to your situation.

For more information on our services and fees, please call (770) 353-6356.
