However, what is unique about Kodi is their “advice-only” approach to financial planning, where customers have no obligation, expectation, or even Option To have their investments managed by Kodi’s firm…which has allowed them to quickly attract a waiting list of customers who may be Do-It-Yourselfers at the time of implementation, but not Learn-It-Yourselfers We are happy to pay Kodi for more personalized education.
