Services & Fees
At Taylor Financial Group, we pride ourselves on solving our clients’ challenges by providing customized financial planning services. No two individuals or families are alike, and neither is their financial plan. We take the time to learn about your needs and goals, and then create a customized road map to help get you there. How do we do that? We consider your various resources, along with your needs (and dreams), and pull it all together in a way that makes sense to you.
We know that our clients are busy people. So, we coordinate with their other professionals (such as attorneys and accountants), and we maintain important documents (such as tax returns and estate documents) in clients’ WealthMatch™ electronic vaults.
In addition, we regularly hold financial empowerment workshops on various financial planning topics to help educate you on the importance of financial well-being. Information regarding our workshop schedule can be found by clicking here.
We are primarily fee-based, and we strongly believe in transparency when it comes to our fees. We know that clients are likely to be more satisfied when they understand the fees that they are paying. That’s why we have upfront and proactive conversations with prospective and current clients to discuss any and all fees that are charged to their portfolios.

What do we help you with?
We construct portfolios that are in line with your specific goals, timeline, and risk tolerance.

Is Taylor Financial Group a Fiduciary
At Taylor Financial Group, we have been acting as fiduciaries for over 20 years. Fiduciaries may be legally obligated to place the client’s interest ahead of their own in certain instances. Fiduciaries are also expected to act more transparently by disclosing their fees and how they are compensated, among other things.
We have and will always serve our clients with their best interests at heart. In fact, our principal and founder, Debbie Taylor, and our entire team, have committed to the Fiduciary Principles created by the Committee for the Fiduciary Standard, as a promise and constant reminder to our clients that we will always do what’s right for you.”
