The Benefits of Fiduciary Managed Accounts

April 26, 2010by Hoy Grimm0

With literally thousands of mutual fund providers, it sometimes seems that there are just as many different ways to pay for services. If you are tired of trying to understand commission structures, contingent deferred sales charges, rights of accumulation, and the ever-increasing multitude of share classes, perhaps you should consider a managed account. When you utilize a managed account, you pay your financial advisor a management fee based on a percentage of the assets you invest. From a cost standpoint, the greatest advantage to this strategy is simplicity; you pay as you go. But there are many other advantages to managed accounts, including:
