    Percentage of Assets

    Show Explanation

    This fee, which is the most common fee type charged by advisors for portfolio management, is based on the amount of assets you have under management. Also referred to as an asset-based fee, this fee typically ranges from 0.50%-2.00% of AUM annually. You'll typically pay a lower rate the more assets you have under management.

  • Offered by 17% of firms

    Performance-based

    Show Explanation

    Advisors only earn performance-based fees if a portfolio outperforms a defined benchmark. This fee may be calculated in a number of ways but most commonly is charged as a percentage of investment profits. Performance-based fees may incentivize advisors to make riskier decisions in order to generate higher returns.

  • Offered by 39% of firms

    Fixed

    Show Explanation

    Fixed fees are a one-time, lump sum charged for a specific service, like the creation of a financial plan without subsequent implementation. This can be useful if you only need advice for one specific purpose, rather than a long-term advisor. Fixed fees usually range from $1,000 to $3,000.

    Commissions

    Show Explanation

    Occasionally, advisors earn commissions from selling financial products, such as securities or insurance policies, or making certain referrals or transactions.
