FEE BASED

Fee based investing has become very popular over the past decade. The concept of paying your Financial Advisor a percentage of the total assets you have under management has significant benefits.

  • Investors avoid paying commissions to purchase or sell investments
  • Financial Advisor doesn't get paid based on recommendations to purchase or sell
  • Aligns client and Financial Advisor interests

Fee based accounts are billed forward in January, April, July, and October and appear on the following statement February, May, August, and November. This amount can be found on the corresponding statement.

  • < $250,000                                          1.30% annual percentage fee
  • $250,000 to $500,000                         1.20%
  • $500,000 to $750,000                         1.10%
  • $750,000 to 1 million                          1.00
  • 1 million and up                                  .90

Example:

  • January 1st account value = $75,000
  • Account is < $250,000 = 1.30% annual fee
  • 1.30% X $75,000 = $975.00 annual fee
  • 1.30% / 4 = .325% quarterly fee
  • $75,000 X .325% = $243.75 quarterly fee
  • Fee based charges will show on the following statements February, May, August, & November.
