Ferguson Johnson Wealth Management: Serving Arlington Since 1978
Being so close to Washington D.C.—and, in the past, being literally a part of it—there are a lot of hardworking people in Arlington. Whether you commute into the city each day or work for one of the many businesses and government agencies headquartered in Arlington, you don’t have time to waste with an inexperienced or inept wealth management firm. We know that with a hectic schedule it can be tough to make time to figure out your wealth management plan. That’s where we come in.
There are plenty of financial planning companies in the Arlington area, but many use the same approach for each client. At Ferguson-Johnson Wealth Management, we know that each investor is different and requires a custom portfolio and financial plan. We’ve been providing independent, fee-only financial planning and wealth management services to the Arlington area and beyond since 1978. We believe our independence from financial institutions and insurance companies is key in providing objective advice to our clients. Our wealth managers and financial planners operate under the fiduciary standard, meaning that we provide objective advice about your financial situation and always put your interests above our own. Our goal is to help our clients plan wisely, so they can live fully.
Whether you work for the government in DC, for a national non-profit organization, or for a locally headquartered company like AES Corporation, ESI International, or Rosetta Stone—we’ll work with you to determine which investment options are best for you.
About the Fiduciary Standard for Financial Planning
At the most basic level, a fiduciary is a trustee. In the world of financial planning and wealth management, the fiduciary standard demands that financial advisors act in their clients’ best interests and that financial decisions on behalf of the client are made with careful analysis and comprehensive information.
Most people don’t know that the typical broker is held only to the suitability standard, which simply requires the broker to make “suitable” recommendations, regardless of whether that recommendation is in the client’s absolute best interests. You can rest easy knowing our team members at Ferguson-Johnson Wealth Management will always operate under the fiduciary standard.
Experience the difference. Contact a fiduciary advisor at Ferguson-Johnson Wealth Management for financial planning and wealth management services near Arlington, VA today.
Personal Financial Planning Services
A personal financial plan can assist in making smart decisions about your money throughout every stage of your life. Whether you’re still in the early stages of your career, commuting to and from the city every day with a busy schedule, or you’re trying to plan for your children’s future, our financial planners will walk you through every step of the process from discovery to execution. You might know a lot about financial planning, but it’s always best to get a second opinion from an expert who can look at the situation with an outsider’s perspective.
Many other financial planning and wealth management firms use a “one-size-fits-all” approach to investment management, offering essentially the same portfolio options to every client that walks through the door. At Ferguson Johnson Wealth Management, we know that each investor has a different level of experience, a different budget, and a different desired level of risk when they decide to invest. A cookie-cutter approach simply doesn’t cut it. We get to know each client individually and tailor a portfolio to your needs.
We often make use of Dimensional Funds for our Arlington investors because of Dimensional’s academically-focused approach. Dimensional structures investment strategies based on academic research rather than on speculation or commercial indexes, and their board members include some of the nation’s most distinguished and recognized academicians.
We know what it’s like to run a business in the DC area—we’ve been doing it for decades! Federal rules and increased regulatory scrutiny have made it hard for business owners to navigate the ever-evolving landscape of employer retirement plans on their own. We work with you to determine an effective small business retirement plan that satisfies your needs and the needs of your employees while helping to ensure you are complying with regulations.
