Fee Disclosure Document
SmartAsset Advisors LLC (“SmartAsset”) is pleased to introduce you to the SEC or state registered financial advisors presented on your results page (the “Advisors”).

SmartAsset has entered into a written agreement with each Advisor under which SmartAsset refers potential clients to the Advisor in exchange for a referral fee. The referral fees are paid by each Advisor to whom you are matched, regardless of whether you become a client of any of the Advisors. The amount of the referral fees is determined between each Advisor and SmartAsset. In some cases, SmartAsset will receive a portion of the ongoing fees that an advisor charges you, However, no portion of the referral fees paid to SmartAsset will be charged to you, and the fees you pay an Advisor will not be increased as a result of this arrangement. Please ask the Advisors for more information about the fees they charge for their services. For additional advisor disclosures, please see the advisors profile page available here. In general, the Advisors are not affiliated with SmartAsset. However, certain Advisors to whom SmartAsset makes referrals are affiliated with Focus Financial Partners, which is a minority investor in SmartAsset’s parent company. Advisors affiliated with Focus Financial Partners participate in the SmartAsset referral program on the same terms as other Advisors, and are not given preferential treatment by SmartAsset’s matching algorithm.
