    Alternative Assets Account Fee Options

    Option 1 - Based on Number of Assets $299 per asset
    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
    $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.
