Conversation Starters - Ask your financial professional these questions to learn more:

 - Given my financial situation, should I choose a brokerage service? Why or why not?

 - How will you choose investments to recommend to me?

 - What is your relevant experience, including your licenses, education, and other qualifications? What do these qualifications mean?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Conversation Starter –

 

 - Help me understand how these fees and costs might affect my investments. If I give you $10,000 to invest, how much will go to fees and costs, and how much will be invested for me?

How do your financial professionals make money?

How are we paid?

Commissions: Fee you pay is based on specific transaction and not the value of your account. We get commissions when you buy or sell securities. Sometimes we also get payments from third parties. Example: mutual fund commissions and trailers which do not have any effect on the value of your mutual fund balance.

 

What about conflict of interest?

 

Conversation Starter –

  • How might your conflicts of interest affect me, and how will you address them?

When we are paid commission by you, we do have conflict of interest by charging commission (mark-up or mark down or straight commission) to you. Therefore, more transactions in your account, the more transaction fees we charge you. When we charge commissions on trades, we monitor to make sure that commission does not exceed FINRA 5% guideline.

Some investments such as mutual funds or other manufactured products, we have built in conflicts and we must tell you at the time of sell or solicitation about that recommendation to disclose that conflict of interest. With mutual funds, this fee (typically called a “load”) reduces the value of your investment.

 

What about care?

The Care Obligation requires broker-dealers to exercise reasonable diligence, care, and skill when making a recommendation that is in the best interest of a retail customer, taking into account their investment profile, the risks, rewards, and costs. In nutshell, when we provide service to you, we must treat you fairly and comply with a number of specific obligations.
