Ferguson-Johnson Wealth Management has been providing independent, fee-only financial planning and wealth management services to the Washington, D.C. area 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.
There is an abundance of financial planning and investment firms in the D.C. area, but many of them use a cookie-cutter approach in their portfolio management style. That doesn’t cut it at Ferguson-Johnson Wealth Management. Whether you work on Capitol Hill, for a local university, or for a professional services company downtown, we’ll use the little time you have in your busy schedule to help you expertly craft a plan for your financial future.CONTACT NOW
As busy as you are, you probably don’t have time to do extensive research on financial planning firms and why hiring a fiduciary advisor is important. The good news is that your searching stops here. 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 interest. Financial decisions on behalf of the client are always made with careful analysis and comprehensive information.
Most people don’t know that the typical D.C. 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.
A personal financial plan can assist in making smart decisions about your money throughout every stage of your life. Whether you’re trying to figure out how to afford a property in downtown D.C., you’re getting ready to start a family, or you’re thinking about moving out of the city for retirement, our financial planners will walk you through every step of the financial planning process from discovery to execution. Wondering if you need a financial planner? If you’re asking yourself that question, you probably do.
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. Furthermore, if you work for the government or in politics, you might have additional considerations to take into account. A cookie-cutter approach simply won’t cut it. We get to know each client individually and tailor a portfolio to your goals.Learn More
