Fewer than 1% of financial services companies offer commission-free advice.
Pure advice, instead of a salespitch
In a traditional investment or insurance brokerage firm, there is an inherent conflict of interest between the goals of the brokerage and the goals of the client. We are not a traditional firm, so there is no conflict.

About Open Window

An emergency physician for 23 years, Joseph Hollen, MD, couldn’t find the straightforward, evidence-based financial advice that he needed in order to plan for his future. So he decided to become that resource for himself and others. 

Open Window is among the fewer than 1% of financial services firms nationwide that abide by the Fiduciary Oath, a commitment to operate commission-free and put clients' interests ahead of the firm's. As evidence of this commitment Open Window undergoes an annual certification process by an independent organization, The Center for Fiduciary Excellence (CEFEX). Open Window is the first firm in Nevada to achieve this certification.

Guided by Joe’s years caring for medical patients, trust is the essential foundation of our client relationships.  If you seek transparency and clarity in your financial advisory relationship and you want a true partner who is as invested in your financial success as you are, you are in the right place.

Our approach is intensely personal and customized. We put ourselves in your shoes to hear your interests and concerns.

- The Golden Rule

Fiduciary?

You deserve a Fiduciary
The "Fiduciary Standard" is the Golden Rule for financial advisors.
 
You don't have to offer advice according to a "Fiduciary Standard" of care to be a financial advisor. 
 
Under the Fiduciary Standard an advisor must act in the client's interest only.  Yet, most advisory firms operate according to a less strict "Suitability Standard".  If you're seeking advice, does it sound right that something comes before your own interests?  Some firms recognize this conflict so they 'wear both hats', providing advice under the Fiduciary Standard then in the next breath the Suitability Standard - you're left to tell the difference between good advice and a salespitch.
 
The advisors at Open Window act according to the Fiduciary Standard of care at all times.  As evidence of this commitment, Open Window undergoes an annual certification by an independent organization, The Center for Fiduciary Excellence (CEFEX).  Open Window is the first firm in Nevada to achieve this Fiduciary Certification. 
 
Many firms claim to work in your best interest, but few are willing to legally commit to the standard of care you deserve. Even fewer firms will have their fiduciary claims independently certified.
 

 
Fiduciary Oath
 
The advisors at Open Window also put this commitment in writing, through the Fiduciary Oath.  This oath is required for membership in the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA).
 
Following the NAPFA Fiduciary Oath means advisors shall:
  • Always act in good faith and in the best interest of a client
  • Be proactive in disclosing any conflicts of interest that may impact a client (Open Window takes this a step further and seeks to avoid conflicts of interest, not just disclose them)  
  • Not accept any referral fees or compensation contingent upon the purchase or sale of a financial product, or other compensation from another party based on the referral of a client or the client's business
