What is a financial services company?

Financial services companies vary depending on their business goals and areas of experience. In general, companies in this industry offer different types of financial services, including banking, financial planning, investing, lending, insurance, advising, real estate, retirement and more. Most financial services companies offer a combination of services in order to better address their clients’ needs.

Types of Financial Services Offered at Compass Financial

At Compass Financial, we focus on a few types of financial services in order to help our clients in the pursuit of their financial goals:

Hourly Financial Planning

Our Des Moines financial advisors offer hourly financial planning services. The whole idea of financial planning is to figure out what your goals are and then make a plan to to help you get there. Unlike fee-based financial planning, where financial advisors charge a consultation fee and a percentage of income earned, we charge a flat hourly rate for this type of financial service.

Investment Management

There’s no such thing as a “one size fits all” investment strategy. For example, the right investment strategy for your neighbor might not be the best strategy for you. Talking to a financial professional can provide clarity when it comes to different investment options and determining which will be the right fit for you. When you partner with Compass Financial for investment management services, we help you handle your financial assets and other investments.

Compass on Demand

Compass on Demand is a convenient, subscription-based approach to financial planning services. This flexible option combines the valuable advice and experience of our Certified Financial Planners® with the ease of an online system you can use whenever it’s convenient for your schedule and whenever financial questions pop up in your life.


Few things in life are truly certain, so we must accept a certain amount of risk. Financial services companies often offer insurance for income protection as a way to help you mitigate financial risks and increase your peace of mind. At Compass Financial Services, we can help you explore your insurance options and find a plan that fits into your budget and your lifestyle and coverage needs.

When should you hire a financial advisor?

There are no set rules about when to hire a financial advisor or consult with a financial services company. Many people wait until later in life to seek advice from a financial planner, but we recommend getting an early start so you can make a financial plan for your future.

No matter what life stage you’re in, what your income level is or what your financial goals are, talking with a financial advisor can provide direction and confidence in your plan.
