Choice

Choose from our fully diversified and competitively priced fee-based investment line-up, including Series F, Series F4, Series F6 Mutual Funds and Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs).

Transparency

With fee based accounts, the investor and advisor set the advisor commission outside the fund. Through this negotiation, the investor knows exactly the cost of advice. Transparency of costs help investors make informed decision about their investments.

Client trust

Negotiating a fee with each client allows flexibility to offer clients a rate that best suits their needs. Tailored solutions ensure alignment with a clients’ interest, allowing you to establish a long term, trustworthy relationship.
