For people that are RIA or fee-only, hwo do you typically handle NQ money from a fee perspective?  I ask because a lot of my NQ accounts are a big mix of multi-purpose money.  A typical account might have some MMKT, some CD's, some muni's, some individual stocks, and maybe even a fixed annuity or SPIA.  In contrast, most of my qualified accounts are more "managed"....an active fund or ETF portfolio for example.  I just don't see how you could charge a consistent fee on a NQ account (unless it was all for one purpose, ie. capital preservation, growth, etc.).

You can split it up.  40 bps for fixed income-type securities and maybe 125 bps for equities and the like.

Yep, you can also flat dollar it...

Would you have to do it manually, or would you just come up with a pro-rated amount, like 65 bips until the mix changed?

Ice - I didn't say I did it that way.  Just that you could.

I use the same fee for the whole account.  But you make a valid point.  I wonder how people would deal with that.

I charge the same on cash too.

That's what I thought you did.  Can't trust my reading comprehension with a hangover I guess!  CODMW2? 



As soon as I can convince my wife that just because she is working today, doesn't mean I have to.  You would think cleaning the house before everybody else wakes up would earn me some points.
