Fee-only financial planning

Who We Are

About Aqua Financial Planning, LLC

Aqua Financial Planning, LLC, a financial advisory firm located in the Chicago area, was founded by Francine Duke, CFP. "We operate as a fee-only firm which means that we do not accept sales commissions for any of the products that we may recommend" says Francine Duke. "This removes potential conflicts of interest and allows us to focus on the best financial solutions for our client's specific needs; something many find refreshing in today's uncertain market. Also, because Aqua Financial Planning is an independent firm, we are not tied to the products of any specific company. As a result, we are able to offer our clients a broad array of alternatives to choose from."
