Q. If I use a fee-only planner, what's the difference if they charge a fee for creating a financial plan versus charging a fee based on assets under management? It seems the second option would be way more expensive.

A. There's a big difference.

It's a question of buying a one-shot deal versus having someone work with your money on a regular basis.

When you're charged a fee for a financial plan, you receive a financial plan and that's all that's done, said Bill Connington of Connington Wealth Management in Fairfield.

You get a plan, and then you must go and implement it yourself, he said.
