Frequently Asked Questions

Is One Degree right for me?

Our clients desire to improve their financial and family life. They appreciate collaboration and professional expertise. They’re often business owners, successful professionals, high earners, and/or accomplished savers. While they may retire from a career, they continue pursuing purpose and fulfillment. One Degree Advisors may be a good fit for you if you value:


• a trusted relationship and professional expertise

• delegating financial management to free you up

• guidance through a life transition

• transferring wisdom before wealth to the next generation

• integrating biblical principles into your decision-making

• leveraging money as a tool to accomplish your goals and make an impact for good



Are you a fiduciary?

As CFP® professionals, we are held to the fiduciary standard for financial planning and investment management.  This is the highest standard of client care and means we place the interest of our clients ahead of our own. For more information on the fiduciary standard, you can visit the CFP Board website.



What is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional?

When selecting a financial planner, how do you know you have chosen someone who is qualified, competent, and will ethically help you plan your future?

Most people think that all financial planners are 'certified,' but this is not the case. Only those who meet strict education, examination, experience, and ethical requirements are allowed to use the CFP® certification marks. You can have added confidence the person you choose to help you plan your future is qualified if you choose a CFP® professional.



Do you only work with people in Southern California?

While headquartered in Southern California, we work with clients all across the country. Every client enjoys the same quality experience by leveraging technology. Phone and video conferences, computer screen sharing, and secure online document storage allow for a seamless experience. We utilize state of the art planning software that allows our clients to see plan projections and the effects of various scenarios to guide confident decision-making wherever they may live.



How are you paid?

We are compensated through fees for financial planning and investment management services. Payment may occur through a percentage of assets under management and/or flat planning fees for the work we complete for you. If applicable, we also help you secure appropriate insurance tools by independently shopping the marketplace. (In some cases, we may be compensated by the company.)


After meeting together and determining if we will be a good match, we will outline a transparent fee schedule.
