We charge a management fee based on a percentage of the value of the assets we manage. We accept no commissions or other forms of compensation from investment product providers or financial institutions. The fee is quoted as an annual percentage fee, and is billed quarterly in arrears by taking the value of managed assets at the end of each calendar quarter and applying one-fourth of that annual percentage fee. For example, if the annual fee is 1%, then 1/4 of 1% is applied to each average quarterly account balance. The fee is normally deducted directly from the client account or accounts in arrears unless the client prefers to prepay the fee.
We also offer an incentive fee arrangement at the clients’ request. In these scenarios, we would charge 25 basis points of asset under management as a base fee and 20% of the profits in excess of a market benchmark.
