FAQ

Why work with Truepoint?

P&Gers see the Truepoint team as a dedicated partner who understands the intricacies of their financial landscape. With our deep knowledge of P&G’s benefits and a commitment to building personalized strategies, we empower clients to navigate their wealth journey seamlessly. Our unwavering focus on their unique needs and objectives makes us the trusted choice for those seeking peace of mind and possibility.

What are the fees?

Our fee structure is simple.

  • If you are a P&G employee, there is a $625 quarterly retainer fee plus 1.00% annually on any investments managed outside of the P&G Profit Sharing Trust and Savings Plan.
  • Upon separation from P&G, Truepoint’s standard fee schedule will apply.
Can you help me make my STAR and LTIP award elections?

Yes. Each year, our team builds an analysis on the Procter & Gamble LTIP and STAR Award programs to help current P&G employees make the best choice for their situation.

These awards can provide significant opportunities to build future wealth and achieve financial goals. Because both programs come with a choice between stock options and an alternative (cash or RSUs), there are several considerations to be made when determining the choice. Click here to see our most recent analysis.

Do you recommend the Frank Duke method upon retirement?

We recommend the Frank Duke Method—a tax-efficient way to distribute funds from the P&G Profit Sharing Trust and Savings Plan after separation from P&G—for many clients, depending on their circumstances. This strategy is not for everyone, but we do consider it when evaluating any P&Ger’s retirement distribution strategy. (Don’t know what the Frank Duke method is? Read about it here!)

Can you help me with my taxes?

Yes—We have an in-house tax team that not only provides tax advice, but will also prepare and file your taxes. We consider the tax implications of everything we do for our clients, including those who are a part of our P&G Pre-Retirement Service.

Can you help me understand when to exercise my options?

Yes—we feel the option exercise decision is an important one and involves many factors that should be considered, like taxes, cash flow needs and concentration risk. If you want to know more about how we approach the options, we have written about it here.

Can you help my children or parents?

Yes! We’re always happy to have a conversation with friends or family who could benefit from our services.

Truepoint and Commas are one company with two ways to engage, allowing us to work with anyone who would benefit from our help. Learn more about the services we offer through Commas, our process, and our Commas advisor team here.
