You may have worked with a financial advisor before and are on the hunt for a company that is a better fit. During the initial phases of our relationship with you, we’ll get to know you closely so that you can be sure our firm is a good match for your goals and values. Furthermore, we always operate under the fiduciary standard, so you can rest easy knowing we’ll always give you advice that serves your interests above ours.CONTACT NOW
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.
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 Great Falls 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.Learn More
