$300/month E&O

Clearing Fee:  25 bps for 120 Trades Per Year- $20 Per Ticket thereafter

Platform Fee:  $7.25 per month

We have the option of charging the fees to the client or to us.  Need some help on how everyone is charging the fees, are you paying it, and passing it along to the client via your single fee or does the client get directly charged?

Thanks

We try to avoid passing fees to clients at all costs.

Funny how a person with a million bucks, gets all ticked off about a $30 charge. We just eat it, and smile.

We picked up all acat fees when we set up shop, and spent about 7 grand doing so. Gladly...

We are traditionalists otherwise, and do simple old fashioned stock/bond trades, mutual funds, uit biz. We have zero managed accounts, and we're just fine doing so, average about 75 bps AUM.
