compensation

Traditionally wealth management firms charge fee as a percentage of assets. Commissions may be charged on top of the fee. This is a sample of what a sliding fee schedule can look like. Sometimes there is a minimum charge.

first $500K @ 1.50% = $7,500
next $250K @ 1.25% = $3,125
next $250K @ 1.00% = $2,500
$1M+ @0.50%             = $5,000
   $1M managed            = $13,125

Fees in these circumstances should also be tax deductible for non-registered accounts.

Mutual funds are a vehicle to get you started on the road to saving for your future. Mutual fund fees vary greatly. A recent Morningstar study found that Canadian equity funds MER median charges are 1.94%.


$250,000 @ 1.94% = $4,850
$400,000 @ 1.94% = $7,760
$500,000 @ 1.94% = $9,700
$1 million  @ 1.94% = $19,400

 

Mutual fund fees are NOT a tax
deductible in any account type.

PensionizeMe Wealth Services (PMWS) seeks to minimize costs when managing client portfolios. Keeping an eye on cost, like in any business, means more money working for you and your future.

A few people have asked how can your fees be so competitive? The answer is simple. PMWS leverages technology and as result we can pass along the savings to our clients. PMWS uses leading edge professional screening tools that minimize the time required to find opportunity and then decide whether to act.


PMWS helps meet client needs using Closed End Funds (CEFs) Top 10 Yield & Discount Strategy and top Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) to attempt to develop a stable tax efficient income stream. In essence, a Pension Plan.

applying the method in 5 steps

1. COSTs.

There are 5 areas where wealth transfers occur:

  1. How you finance your home purchase.
  2. Taxes. Don’t pay more than you should.
  3. Using Retirement plans effectively.
  4. Savings for Education.
  5. Paying for Major Capital Purchases

 

There are saving that can easily be identified in each of the 5 areas. Those saving can then be put to work for the future.

2. L.U.C.K.

To stress how important it is to be able to access your money, PMWS like to use the acronym LUCK.

Liquidity – knowing you can access your money easily.

Use – Accessing your money is for your use and not subject to outside opinion.

Compounding – Having your money compound for your future use in a tax efficient manner.

Knowledge – knowing that your money is working for you and your future and no one else’s.

3. strategy.

After identifying your unique issues and goals, present a strategy that focuses on generating tax efficient income with an eye on rules-based risk management. 

Two main objectives are to earning income and preserve capital while keeping the most after tax money you legally can. 

Most people play to win. Some people know that the there is a shortcut to victory. You have to identify and avoid the costliest errors. The Unforced ones. Don’t make them. Refuse to lose.

4. ExecutiON.

After we present the strategy, it will be put into action across your household accounts, scaled in over an agreed upon time frame. Any areas where wealth transfers are occurring will also be addressed at this stage and a strategy put in place to save those dollars and get them working for you.

Our strategy requires precision and a mini trade desk to work. In Allindex CMP we have a digital tool box, a Swiss army knife for fast, efficient execution of index rebalancing trades.

5. MONITORING.

Unfortunately, many changes to portfolios tend to be made on an emotional level. This is understandable, after all you worked hard to save and invest, and you don’t want to lose.

PWMS removes the emotion by using a rules-based approach to invest for parts of our portfolios. We work hard to choose investments that even if they drop in value temporarily, should continue to comfortably pay out an income stream to our clients.

Market conditions can change almost daily. PMWS are not day traders. We are sensitive to changes in market sentiment. If we feel that there is a need to make changes to the portfolio we will.

Why us?

WHY AN INTEGRATED ADVISORY
BUSINESS MODEL IS A WIN-WIN

1. Big Picture perspective

This involves looking at all aspects of your financial situation, including your goals, risk tolerance and overall financial health, in order to create a comprehensive wealth management plan.

2. Fee-Based

Being fee-based means our economic interests are aligned with yours. If you are successful, we are successful. It also means you aren’t tied up for years in complicated products. We are humans, so we have made some mistakes before, but we learned from them, we got better and moved on. We also believe this is the best client-advisor relationship model.

3. I am an Advisor, Not a Salesman

I focus on understanding and meeting your unique needs and goals, and providing personalized recommendations and strategies that are tailored to your individual financial situation.

Let me be radically honest. I am independent advisor, experienced, straightforward and I work for you.

4. Honest and Direct Advice

I pride myself on giving advice that is not only honest, but its also direct. Sometimes, that means giving you recommendations and advice you need to hear. I believe that plain-spoken, direct advice will better help you reach your goals.

5. Evidence Based, Education Driven

Deciding who to work with can be a complicated process.
How do you know who is verifiably trustworthy? We offer free education on important topics. You “can kick our tires.” 

However, the best way to know is to join us.

We are confident our initial conversations and complete transparency eliminate any surprises.

In the end, you don’t know what you don’t know.
