Financial advisors don’t necessarily advertise whether they’re willing to work on an hourly fee, since most still prefer earning fees based off a client’s assets, but some are willing to take on new clients paying by the hour or on a package basis, according to news reports.

"The amount of time required for data intake and initial fact finding to build a financial plan,” makes advisors shy away from hourly fees, said Chris Russell, certified financial analyst at Tempus Pecunia, according to MarketWatch.

But experts tell the web publication that investors can turn to sites such as XY Planning Network and Garrett Planning Network to find those who’ll charge by the hour.

It’s still up to the investor to then go search those advisor websites to find whether they disclose their fees, said Kaleb Paddock at Ten Talents Financial Planning, according to MarketWatch.

Typically, hourly fees range from $200 to $500, according to the web publication,

Paddock recommends that investors seek “a one-time flat price instead of hourly to start the relationship,” and then opt for the hourly option based on their needs, MarketWatch writes.

Paddock, who charges $350 per hour, may initially offer “a three-month flat priced $4,800 to $6,400 engagement” fee and then charge by the hour, according to the web publication.

Moreover, even those advisors who typically charge asset-based fees may be open to charging by the hour, MarketWatch writes.

“It’s usually a few hours and touches upon several areas of financial planning that they need answers to,” said advisor Dennis O’Brien, who offers an hourly option on a one-time-only basis.
