Fees or Commissions
As a financial advisor that is registered as an IAR (Investment Advisory Rep), I offer my clients investment strategies based on their individual needs, not based on fees or commissions. Most securities (i.e. stocks, bonds, mutual funds, CD’s, etc.) can be purchased inside a fee-only account.
My clients often want the guarantees available within an annuity. Annuities involve an insurance company that pays me a commission. Due to the commission paid, I NEVER include an annuity (or any other commissionable investment) in a fee based account.
Fee-based management offers additional benefits
- You will receive a written scheduled quarterly review of the performance of the account.
- Fiduciary responsibility to the client. Fiduciary responsibility means the highest accountability that the law provides. Of course no one can be held responsible for market losses.
- No surrender fees for early changes or withdrawals. You simply pay-as-you-go. (Standard termination fee may still apply.)
