    Rates and Compensation

     
    Unlimited CFO Services

    Comprehensive investment management and financial planning services as well as unlimited access to a Certified Financial Planner™ for all of your financial needs. Requires management of investment portfolio of at least $500,000.

     

    The annual fees are negotiable and are pro-rated and paid in advance on a quarterly basis. The advisory fee is a blended fee and is calculated by assessing the percentage rates using the predefined levels of assets as shown in the above chart, and applying the fee to the account value as of the last day of the previous quarter resulting in a combined weighted fee. For example, an account valued at $3,000,000 would pay an effective fee of 0.63% with the annual fee of $19,000.00. The quarterly fee is determined by the following calculation: (($2,000,000 x 0.70%) + ($1,000,000 x 0.50%)) ÷ 4 = $4,750. No increase in the annual fee shall be effective without agreement from the client by signing a new agreement or amendment to their current advisory agreement.

     

    Advisory fees are directly debited from client accounts, or the client may choose to pay by check.  Accounts initiated or terminated during a calendar quarter will be charged a pro-rated fee based on the amount of time remaining in the billing period. An account may be terminated with written notice at least 15 calendar days in advance.  Upon termination of the account, any unearned fee will be refunded to the client.
