Our fee is a tiered fee, paid in arrears, calculated by assessing the percentage rates using the predefined levels of assets under management (AUM) as shown in the below chart and applying the fee to the daily average account value of the previous quarter.
AUM Fee 0.45% - 0.85%
$0 - $2.5M
$2.5M - $5M
(M = Million)
For example, for assets under management of $2,550,000, a client would pay 0.65%.
The following calculation determines the quarterly fee:
Average daily balance of the client's account(s) over the previous quarter: $2,550,000
Calculation: (0.65% ÷ 4) x $2,550,000 = $4,143.75
