Fee-Only Financial Planning & Fiduciary Advisors in Bethesda, MD
Ferguson-Johnson Wealth Management Services: Serving Bethesda Since 1978
Bethesda is a place full of smart, hard-working people—earning a mention as the nation’s most educated city and the nation’s top earning town in 2014. It’s no wonder that the nation’s top health scientists, doctors, and business people flock to Bethesda, with organizations like the National Institute of Health and Walter Reed Medical Center as well as global companies like Lockheed Martin, Marriott International, and Ritz Carlton based here.
As an educated taxpayer, you’ve probably worked with a financial advisor in the past. Maybe your relationship with them didn’t work out, or you simply weren’t a great fit for each other.

About the Fiduciary Standard for Fee-Only 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 fee-only fiduciary advisor at Ferguson-Johnson Wealth Management for personal financial planning and wealth management services near Bethesda, MD today.
Fee-Only 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 wealth management 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 Bethesda 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 Maryland—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.
