Investment Management

What to Expect

Whether you accept our recommendations and decide to have us manage your assets after going through the Retirement Planning process or just want a dedicated investment manager to help you invest properly without creating an entire plan, McIlrath | Eck can help. We look at different strategies for how to invest your assets in order to align them with your plan and goals. Whether it is the 401(k) you have been saving into for decades, some extra cash you found under your couch cushion, or even maximizing your Health Savings Account balance while you wait for the need to use it, we are more than happy to provide our professional expertise. We strive to position your investments so that they best meet or exceed the financial goals you have made for yourself.

 Our fee structure is very competitive and straightforward. We are fee-only advisors, so there is no concern about a conflict arising between your and our interests when trading because we do not receive a commission for selling products or certain types of investments. Our fee is based on a % of the assets we manage. (Our Fee). Therefore, our incentive lines up with yours and is aimed at putting your money in the best possible position to grow. When you do well, so do we. 

Throughout the investment management process, you are kept continually informed and your questions are always answered quickly and to your satisfaction! You will receive simplified, consolidated statements reflecting all your investment positions and transactions.  Because we believe transparency is critical to your peace of mind, we offer you full visibility to your accounts online.  You are also welcome to contact us at any time to discuss your investments managed by McIlrath|Eck. As an added convenience to you at the end of the year, we provide you with a 1099 tax form and a summary statement that allows you to simplify your tax return preparation.
