The following is list of frequently asked questions that you should ask your Financial Adviser:What do you mean by Fee-Only advice?
There are a variety of other compensation agreements under which a financial adviser is paid directly or indirectly by someone other than the client for recommending or referring a products or service. The more common compensation methods include:
The Independent Adviser Corporation provides referrals to independent Fee-Only Certified Financial Planners or Certified Public Accountants. We define Fee-Only as an individual CFP or CPA who offers individual investors money management based on a percentage of assets or based on an hourly fee. In certain cases, a commissioned based approach is appropriate because a certain investment product may be most appropriate (e.g. Life Insurance) and can only be sold by charging a commissioned broker. If this is the case, we can assist you with reviewing quotes and selection of a licensed professional. Your Financial Adviser will provide you with complete details regarding your Fee-Only relationship.
you earn "Soft Dollar Compensation?"
Soft-dollar compensation can be abused by financial advisers who claim to be "Fee-Only" or "Fee-Only." For instance, a mutual fund may award travel prizes for the financial adviser for referring the most customers. Some advisers earn significant compensation which may include rewards, purchase points, travel credits or other benefits from a third party for recommending a product or service to the client.
The Independent Adviser Corporation only accepts soft dollars that benefit our clients via reducing our cost structure and our clients fees or providing our Financial Advisers with research. For example, our custodians and broker dealers provide us with computer interfaces and computer equipment to access their systems. Mutual fund and other companies provide us with research, seminar and education material. Other companies may provide us advertising support (banner advertisements and links) that may have otherwise resulted in direct expenditures by us. In these and all cases, we acknowledge that our investment recommendation was based upon that the fact that the investment was appropriate for you and not because we received any services from said companies.
As listed below, The Independent Adviser Company earns the below fees - none of which are derived from the recommendation or direct referrals of products or services to you:
If you have additional questions about our soft-dollar arrangements - we encourage you to talk to your Financial Adviser.
