Perennial Investment Advisors is a Registered Investment Advisor registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
The financial services industry is a rapidly changing and evolving professional environment. As the needs and desires of our consumers change, we too are evolving to meet and address those needs.

This fee serves to align the best interests of the client with those of the RIA, as the advisor cannot make any more money on the account unless the client increases their asset base.
