As a fee only firm, we get paid a percentage of the Assets Under Management ("AUM"). We do not receive any compensation in the form of commissions, rebates, awards, finder’s fees, or hidden charges from any outside entities.
This means we have no incentive to buy and sell (turn over) the positions to drive broker or commission fees as many companies do. If fact, its the exact opposite. This less we trade the less fees are coming out of the account.
Our compensation in dollar terms goes up or down depending on the performance of your account (we only earn more money if you do!). This further illustrates that Maredin's interests are totally aligned with its clients.
