Bassett, Brosius, Foy & Associates is an independent goal-based financial planning practice, affiliated with Raymond James Financial Services, based in Wilmington, DE since 1985. Collectively, our associates have over 100 years’ experience in the financial services industry providing financial planning to clients in over 30 states within the U.S. Our team was chosen as Forbes best-in-state-team for Delaware in 2023 as well as Brad Foy being named Forbes Best in State Advisor 2023 for Delaware. Our financial advisors are all CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professionals, which is considered the gold-standard within financial planning. As CFPs, professional advisors are held to a fiduciary standard, which means we are required to put your interest first before our own. The process starts by collecting all the financial information we can gather about you including your assets, liabilities, income, and goals. Our team then works to put together a financial plan for you that achieves these goals and then we assist you in putting together a diversified portfolio that only takes on as much RISK as is needed to get the RATE of RETURN required by your goals. We also believe in charging clients a reasonable fee, but by no means do we charge the maximum allowed. If you are not working with a best in-state team, a practitioner, or if you are working with an advisor who is overcharging you, then we suggest setting up a free complimentary second opinion service where we will review your current financial plan and portfolio free of charge.

Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards Inc. owns the certification marks CFP®, CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™, CFP® (with plaque design) and CFP® (with flame design) in the U.S., which it awards to individuals who successfully complete CFP Board’s initial and ongoing certification requirements.

Best-In-State Wealth Advisors (2023)
The Forbes ranking of Best-In-State Wealth Advisors, developed by SHOOK Research, is based on an algorithm of qualitative criteria, mostly gained through telephone and in-person due diligence interviews, and quantitative data. Those advisors that are considered have a minimum of seven years of experience, and the algorithm weights factors like revenue trends, assets under management, compliance records, industry experience and those that encompass best practices in their practices and approach to working with clients. Portfolio performance is not a criteria due to varying client objectives and lack of audited data. Out of approximately 34,925 nominations, more than 6,550 advisors received the award. This ranking is not indicative of an advisor's future performance, is not an endorsement, and may not be representative of individual clients' experience. Neither Raymond James nor any of its Financial Advisors or RIA firms pay a fee in exchange for this award/rating. Raymond James is not affiliated with Forbes or Shook Research, LLC.
