Portfolio Manager “Search, Selection and Monitoring” Service

  • Best of both worlds: sophisticated management plus individualized care and attention
  • Straightforward pricing (1.50%-1.75%/year)
    • our compensation is included in the portfolio management fee
    • our compensation is the same regardless of the manager selected
  • Portfolio/manager rematching as needed

money between managers and/or anywhere else without penalties. Normal service 
fees (IRA fees, account closing fees, etc...) apply. These are explained in 
detail in the Disclosure documents.
