The Firm

Trish Howe founded Howe Financial Advisory, LLC in 2012 to bring professional expertise and objective, transparent advice to her clients through Fee-Only financial services. Her work is client driven without the influence of employer driven processes or objectives.

By offering hourly and project-based services, clients are not required to have certain levels of net worth or assets “to manage”. This opens the opportunity for Trish to work with clients in virtually any financial circumstance.

The practice operates under a fiduciary standard of care which is service rather than product driven. A fiduciary standard requires the advisor to act in the client’s best interest rather than one that allows favoring the firm’s or advisor’s interest. The fiduciary standard contrasts to the suitability standard which only requires that a product/recommendation is suitable for a client, and could lead to recommendations which are suitable, but possibly not the best choice available, or at the lowest fee.
