Best-in-class online portal to monitor cash flow, run financial calculations, and monitor your investments and progress
Integrate all of your investments, future pension benefits with a financial plan.
Define your goals
Retirement. College. Whatever it is, money is simply a tool to reach our goals.
We recommend investing for goals - rather than simply answering a few questions about your feelings - and so accounts can be allocated to an individual goal (like a 529 Plan for college), or used for multiple goals.
Load your accounts
Input your online account information and we'll import our assets and investment information and apply it towards your goals.
Our software utilizes Yodlee, a provider of account aggregation to the largest financial services companies. You can learn more about Yodlee's privacy and security services here.
We'll send our observations and recommendations
Once we have your information, we will review it and schedule a call to provide an initial review of your overall financial goal strategies.
Monitor and update
Your dashboard will keep you up to date on your investment allocation and progress.
How We're Different
Totally and completely independent. Many retirement plans will provide free advice or a cookie-cutter investment allocation. As an independent advisor, we provide advice in your interest alone.
Best-in-class tools. Clear.Investments clients have access to the same online tools accessible of Wealth Management clients of Clear Financial Advisors.
A proven philosophy. Not only do we have an investment philosophy, it is one based on science rather than guessing, a crystal ball, or gambling.
Risk maximizing (Tilt investing) 1 +2.18%
Use of cost conscious passive investments 2 +0.75%
Automatic rebalancing 3 +0.50%
Asset location 4 +0.52%
+3.95% per year
Additional quantifiable benefits
Tax benefits (tax-loss harvesting, use of and review of tax-efficient funds and tax-advantaged accounts)
Intentional use of asset class investments, rather than relying on the luck of an investment manager
Not having to rely on guessing, emotions, gimmicks, crystal balls, or the lottery.
Add your accounts online and add your financial goals.
Our software helps you measure the trade-offs between taking investment risk, saving more, and working longer to make sure your plan works.
We'll schedule a call to review your plan in greater detail.
You will have access to your online portal for use in the future.
