WHAT IS FEE-ONLY? WHY DOES IT MATTER?

Fee-only is exactly what it sounds like. It is simply fee for service. Being a fee-only advisor is important to us, because it helps reduce conflicts of interest and is crucial for maintaining a fiduciary relationship. Fee-based or commissions-based advisors earn commissions on certain fund transactions and product sales. This means a trade can be placed in your account in order to generate some income for the advisor, even if the result is not in your best interest. These advisors may also be motivated to sell products to you that are not necessary, but "good enough" to meet the suitability standard.
