True Financial Group: Our Firm
Scott Brischke and Marie Freemyer worked for several years as financial advisors affiliated with a large Broker-Dealer corporation before founding True Financial. Their motivation was simple: to build a firm through which they could truly work for their clients, providing advice to serve clients' best interests. As a Registered Investment Advisory (RIA) firm, True Financial is rooted in the following principles:
True control over the advice we deliver. As an independent firm, we tailor our financial planning and investment recommendations to each client without any influence from a large corporation with its own interests. At the same time, the assets we manage are housed with a third-party custodian (T.D. Ameritrade) so we never take custody of client assets.
True transparency in our fee structure. We are fee-only financial advisors, meaning we are paid for providing advice not for selling products.
True dedication to serving our clients' best interests. We hold ourselves to the fiduciary standard of always putting our clients' interests above our own.
