We Are Fee-Only and Free From Conflicts of Interest

While working with Washington Wealth Advisors, our clients can have confidence that their best interests are at the heart of our advice. As a Fee-Only firm, our advisors provide independent, personalized advice to keep clients on track to achieve their unique financial goals. Fee-Only firms are fiduciaries.

We are Fiduciaries

The fiduciary standard of care means that the only thing that motivates your advisor is what is best for you. There are no external influences upon your advisor to favor certain products because we do not sell any products. We recommend Fidelity Investments® as our independent custodian to hold and safeguard our clients’ assets. We are solely compensated by you.

Fee-only advisors — fiduciaries — like us, are legally and ethically required to act in your best interest at all times. That means you can always...

  • Expect independent advice based on your unique goals.
  • Expect undivided loyalty.
  • Expect complete transparency.
  • Expect full disclosure of fees.

Our Advisors are Certified Financial Planners®

We built Washington Wealth Advisors on the premise that our advisors hold their Certified Financial Planner® designation – or CFP®. CFP® is known as the gold standard of certifications because it requires the advisor use their knowledge to act in the best interests of their clients.
