Account Establishment Fee
If investing in: Alternative Assets (non-refundable, one-time fee per account)
Option 2 - Based on Asset Value (calculate using the table below)
Min. $199 - Max. $1,995
If the account value is between
Multiply the value by
$1 and $24,999 $25,000 and $49,999 $50,000 and $149,999 $150,000 and $299,999 $300,000 and up
0.0095 0.0070 0.0065 0.0060 $1,995 (max)
For example, if account value is $20,000, the annual administration fee would be $199 ($20,000 x .0095 = $190. However, $199 is the minimum fee.) If account value is $55,000, the annual administration fee would be $445.00, calculated by adding together the incremental amounts for each tier: Tier 1: $24,999 x .0095 = $237.49; Tier 2: $25,000 x .0070 = $175.00. Tier 3: $5,001 x .0065 = $32.51. Combining the number from all three tiers totals $445.00.
