Our fee for managing a client's investment follows the “assets under management (AUM)" method.
We charge a percentage based on the total dollar amount of the assets we manage for you. The percentage is deducted in portions from your investment balance on a quarterly basis.
The amount of the AUM fee depends on the complexity of your situation and account size. All fees are clearly explained in all of our proposals and are mutually agreed upon prior to you becoming a client.
Unless specified otherwise, our AUM fee covers:
WFS offers annuities and 529 plans and receives commissions for those products which are explained when those products are discussed with clients. Fees for those products are not included in the WFS AUM fee.
We offer a complimentary initial consultation to learn about your goals and needs and provide information on how we work. You are under no obligation to work with WFS by having this consultation. We answer your questions and provide you details on our services and fees. This is your first opportunity to determine whether we are a good fit for you. If we aren’t, we will be happy to refer you to other resources that may be a better fit.
