Columbus Business First Recognizes PDS Planning

Columbus Business First, in its annual rankings of Fee-Only Financial Planners, once again recognizes PDS Planning.  Business First ranks firms by size, based on assets under management.  PDS ranked #8 in central Ohio with over $682 million dollars under management.

Though PDS is always proud to be recognized in the Columbus community, we do feel there are so many other variables that are superior measures of an advisory firm, including the quality of employees, level of service offered to clients, and the transparency of their fees.  With one of the most transparent fee structures in the industry already and incredibly talented people in place, we will continue to set forth each day to serve our clients in the strongest way possible.  More than anything, we want to thank our wonderful clients who have placed their trust in our work.

At PDS, we’re trying to change the way advisors see clients.  Rather than charge them for each additional dollar they save, or be compensated (more) because markets tend to rise over long periods of time, we believe our value is provided by giving sound advice and charging clients for the work we do, not the amount of money they opt to invest.  Our job is to enhance our client’s wealth, not our own.  As a trusted advisor, when we say we are a fiduciary, we mean it.  It’s your life, let’s plan for it – together!
