Our Fees

A web search for "how financial advisors get paid" will generate hundreds of results describing the merits of several fee options, including: fee-only; fee-based; and commissioned. At Quartz Financial, we believe the ability to bring any and all strategies, without regard to fee structure, allows us to develop and implement comprehensive plans for our clients and which do not have an allegiance to any one particular product or strategy. It just seems to be the fair and reasonable solution to the ongoing ‘fee debates’.

Account Protection

LPL Financial is a member of the Securities Investor Protection Corporation (SIPC). Membership provides protection for customer accounts up to $500,000, of which $250,000 may be claims for cash, in the unlikely event that LPL Financial were to fail financially (For an explanatory brochure, visit

Moreover, LPL Financial accounts have additional securities protection to cover the net equity of client accounts up to an overall aggregate firm limit of $575,000,000, subject to conditions and limitations. This coverage is underwritten by London Insurers through the Lloyds of London syndicates. Account protection applies when a SIPC member firm fails financially and is unable to meet its obligations to securities clients, but it does not protect against losses from the rise and fall in the market value of investments. This extensive coverage reflects a strong commitment to serving your investment needs.

As always, our focus remains on our customers and their clients and on helping you meet your financial needs and goals. Thank you for the opportunity to partner with your financial advisor to serve your financial needs.
