At FirsTrust, our fees are fully transparent, mutually
 
aligned with your interests, and highly competitive.
 

Fully Transparent:

The quarterly service fee from our clients is our only source of our compensation. Period. We have no lengthy compensation disclosures because there’s no other compensation to disclose.

Mutually Aligned Interests:

We believe compensation motivates behavior.

Paying a fee to maximize performance incentivizes risk-taking. Paying a fee that varies by the type of asset class incentivizes unbalanced portfolios. Fee-based firms are incentivized to recommend high-commission investments. And commission-paid brokers are incentivized to focus on making sales to new customers; because once the commissions are paid, the only financial incentive for attending to an existing client is if an additional sale can be made.

Our compensation is designed the way WE would want it if WE were the clients:

  • With no long-term contracts, we are easy to fire at the end of any quarter; incentivizing us to provide constant value and competent service.
  • With investment management fees based upon the size of your accounts, we are incentivized to make sure your portfolio goes up; and financially penalized if it goes down.
  • With our a-la-carte service menu, you can custom-design a FinancialTeam to meet your specific retirement, tax, and/or estate planning needs. If you don’t want a service, you don’t pay for it.

Highly Competitive Fee Structure:

We believe the cost of hiring us is lower than banks, brokerages and other firms that charge management fees, sales commissions, additional service costs and internal expenses.

We also believe the financial products that pay the best commissions are usually in your worst interest, and being truly independent provides us with a significant opportunity to find better and more affordable solutions.

And, since our fees are determined by the size of your accounts, we are additionally motivated to keep those accounts free from high trading costs, custodial expenses and banking fees – as well as unnecessary risks and income taxes.
