Pathway Capital Management is a fee-only firm managing money for institutional clients. It is not a money manager for individuals and has no individual clients on its books. If you are looking for a financial advisor for your personal portfolio, consider finding one with SmartAsset’s free financial advisor matching service.
As a fee-only firm, Pathway Capital earns all of its compensation from client-paid fees. A fee-based firm, on the other hand, earns compensation from both client fees and third-party compensation, like securities commissions.
