Achieving your life-long goals starts with a plan.

Whether you're saving to put your kids through college or working towards financial independence in retirement, it's essential to know how all the aspects of your financial life are connected to help you stay on track. How you handle your finances often needs to evolve with you through each stage of your life and can get more complicated as you accumulate wealth. At Willis Johnson & Associates, our proactive and comprehensive approach to wealth management means that you can be ready for wherever life takes you next.

Getting to Know You in Initial Meetings

Before Becoming a Client

Juggling your finances alongside a successful career can add unnecessary stress and confusion to an already-busy lifestyle. We understand the importance of finding the right advisor for you and your family to simplify your financial picture. Before becoming a client, we offer a complimentary first meeting where we'll learn about you, your financial concerns, and where you want your wealth to take you.

WJA's Consultative Approach

Meeting 1 - Introductions

1-on-1 with an advisor to learn about you, your family, and your goals while offering you an introduction to our firm's services

Meeting 2 - Assessments

Your advisor performs an employee benefits analysis, investment review, and tax return assessment to uncover missed opportunities.

Meeting 3 - Guidance

Your advisor offers actionable recommendations and strategies to help you reach your goals whether you decide to work with us or not. 

What We Look at During Initial Meetings

The goals of initial meetings are to discover if our firm can offer you value in your financial scenario and enable you to get to know us and our areas of expertise. Our advisors take a consultative approach to understand you, your goals, and what opportunities may be available to you. By our second meeting with you, an advisor will walk through the following steps to see what strategies and recommendations to recommend to help you reach your financial goals.

Company Benefits & Compensation Assessment

Walking you through your 401(k) portal, executive compensation package, and the various elections available to you by your company allows an advisor to offer recommendations on how you can optimize them going forward.

Tax Planning & Optimization Analysis

Discussing tailored tax strategies with an advisor to see the tax planning opportunities available for you to take advantage of, gain clear insight into which tax obstacles you may face, and understand how we can help.

Investment Strategy & Portfolio Review

Our Fees 

At WJA, we ensure that our fees are always transparent and correlated to the value we offer our clientele. We use a weighted formula based on a client's assets under management, starting at 1.15%, and decreasing as AUM increases. 

Wealth Management Fee Schedule

Household Assets Under Management Annual Fee as % of Assets
Up to $750,000* 1.15%
$750,000.01 to $2,500,000 0.85%
$2,500,000.01 to $5,000,000 0.65%
$5,000,000.01 and up 0.40%

Fees are calculated through a weighted formula using the assets under management (AUM) ranges listed above. Clients whose AUM’s are within multiple ranges will be charged no more than 1.15% of their total AUM with the exception of clients under $750,000 who will be billed a minimum fee of $2,156 per quarter. Clients who began engagement with the firm prior to 2018 may be grandfathered into a previous fee schedule.
