Why Schutte Financial

Family on Beach

We believe in supporting your heritage by empowering your legacy.


Your Value

Have you wondered if it’s worth it to pay for a financial advisor? Maybe you have heard of a free or automated robo advisor. Or, perhaps you feel you could do just as well on your own.

However, what if you could earn more with a professionally managed investment portfolio for a small fee versus on your own or with a free service? We are pleased to share that our clients historically have a higher return on their investments with us than the average private client.

We choose to not charge a commission on financial advice or portfolio management. We also do not have transactions fees or investment minimums. Yet, we work with a team of certified experts and utilize leading technology so you can put your money to work right away and rest assured that you are getting excellent value.

If working with an experienced human professional could provide a better return or save you time and frustration for a small fee, rather than doing it all yourself, would that be worth your peace of mind?

Having a financial advisor who is both competent and truly cares can mean the difference in achieving your goals. With Schutte Financial, you can believe in your heritage and invest in your legacy.


Your Experience

Your experience with us is designed to be transparent, pleasant, and energizing. To best serve you, we recommend these three options:

Option 1: Ask for Guidance in a Free Consultation

Start today by scheduling a free consultation. You simply share your story and financial goals with a caring and competent financial advisor. We will then recommend a service plan that supports your goals. There is never any pressure, and you always get to select your next steps.

If you prefer to skip a consultation, please choose Option 2 or 3.

Option 2: Order Financial Plan, Assessment, or Advice

Try our Sapphire service. Like a doctor conducts a checkup before prescribing any treatment, creating a plan that details your starting point and intended destination helps to know what solutions can best empower your legacy. Your online personalized plan can be dynamic and mobile.

To have your investments managed by us, please skip to Option 3.

Option 3: Take the First Step to Start Investing or Get Insured

For investment management, we suggest trying our Platinum service for modern, low-cost Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) portfolio management. This comes with complimentary Sapphire service. Your shiny new account can be open online in 5 minutes! We can help or you can feel free to get started on your own. It features human insight and advanced automated technology including automatic re-balancing, a free mobile app, daily tax loss harvesting, and no transaction fees or minimums. Even if you have a previous mutual fund account, you can convert qualified funds, diversify risk for your assets, or save up for a special purchase with this ETF portfolio. Start investing in your legacy today!

Select our Platinum service to leverage technology with human oversight.


For insurance coverage, review the options under Insure or contact us and specify which type of insurance you would like to consider. We can refer you to a resource with access to leading carriers according to public ratings on coverage, cost, and care. Protect your legacy today!

There is no extra cost to work with an insurance broker through us since compensation comes directly from the carrier. We can be your advocate!
