Who is Davis Financial?
Davis Financial is a fee-based financial planning firm in Ogden, UT.  Among many things, we sponsor the only non-commissioned 403b for k-12 educators in the state.
Why Should I Talk To You?

Our core belief is that money is a magnifier. We like to work with like-minded individuals, interested in growing their wealth & magnifying the good around them.  Our mission is to help all clients reach accredited investor status, through both income & net worth.

We are transparent & fun! We also believe investments should be low cost, commission-free & liquid. Because we don’t charge commissions we can offer high quality investments without the traditional expenses you may already be paying. We believe that you shouldn’t have to purchase a product to get quality advice.

What Are My Investment & Planning Choices?

Our clients can choose to custody their investments with Fidelity, TD Ameritrade or Charles Schwab. With very few restrictions – we have broad investment platforms ranging from traditional equities to alternative assets such as REITS & MLPs. Do you want to hold real estate or other assets inside a 401k, IRA or Roth? We can do that too.* We offer a no-cost consultation where we can quickly:

  • Estimate your retirement benefits & income;
  • Provide a detailed analysis of your current portfolio;
  • Estimate your current expenses & fees; and
  • Provide you with a cost-savings analysis should you qualify to work with our firm.

*Non-traditional assets held in self-directed retirement accounts are subject to a wide variety of restrictions and regulations. Consult your tax advisor for more details.

We seek to help all clients reach accredited investor status.  We offer 4 different planning services which require at least a 3-month commitment. Contact us for our brochure.

  • The Basics – $35/month. Designed for young professionals & recent graduates.
  • Wealth Builder – $85/month. Best suited for working professionals ready to set goals to become an accredited investor & substantially improve their financial education.
  • Accredited – $210/month. Advanced planning, investment & gifting strategies for high net worth individuals & couples.
  • Business Builder – $85/month or add-on for $60/month. Small business planning, marketing, tax preparation & bookkeeping all in one. Let us help you build your biggest assets.

 

How Often Will We Talk?

Financial planning clients meet virtually or in-office on a quarterly basis. Asset-management clients meet at least every 6 months. Should your situation require more attention – we also offer quarterly or monthly reviews. New clients will generally have up to 7 appointments in the first 12 months.

Why Do You use Fidelity’s 403b Platform?
  1. No commissions. EVER.
  2. 190+ mutual funds.
  3. Low cost. The Fidelity platform is similar in cost structure to the URS retirement plans.
  4. Liquidity & transparency. Our clients benefit from being able to access their funds without any penalty from us or Fidelity. Most 403b plans are expensive & riddled with hidden charges & surrender penalties.
  5. Check out the portfolio at Fidelity 403b Fund Options.

We provide advisory management services for accounts over $75,000. However, you can still participate with Fidelity if you don’t meet the minimums.
– Simply contact us and send in your salary reduction agreement. We can help you with this.
– Need help determining your risk tolerance & asset allocation? Let us help you; we offer modular advisory services.

What Are Your Fees?

Our asset management & planning fees are charged separately. Advisory fees start at 1.20% and require a $75,000 minimum.  Planning fees are based on one of 4 service options & are paid monthly, with an initial 3-month commitment. We also provide miscellaneous advisory services at $150/hour.

What Tax Services Do You Offer?

As an Enrolled Agent, I have unlimited rights to represent taxpayers before the IRS. Where CPAs & Attorneys are regulated by individual states, the Enrolled Agent is a federal designation, meaning I can represent clients in all 50 states.  As a specialist in federal taxation, through Tax Smart Pros our friends & clients can benefit from:

  • Professional tax preparation services for individuals, trusts & business entities.
  • IRS Representation
  • Business entity planning, marketing & bookkeeping
