Our 0.25% management fee covers asset allocation and all trade commissions, plus monitoring, rebalancing and ongoing management.
How it works: The 0.25% fee is based on the average daily value of your assets, and deducted from your account every quarter.
Each ETF manager sets a fee, or “expense ratio,” to cover their operating costs.
How it works: These fees are embedded in the performance of all ETFs. You can find their amounts in each fund’s prospectus.
If you had an average daily balance of $1,000, for example, our management fee would come to $2.50 a year. That's less than lunch.
Use our calculator to see what your management fee could be for different account balances.
This calculator is for illustrative purposes only and may not apply to your individual circumstances. Calculated value assumes the same daily balance for the year and multiplies it by the annual management fee of 0.25%.
The management fee is for services we provide, as well as clearing and custodial services provided by the custodian. The account holder is responsible for the management fee. The fee is paid quarterly in arrears and debited from your account. The management fee does not include the fees and expenses applicable to investment funds, including the fees and expenses that are reflected in the price of the ETF, which are deducted from the fund’s net asset value and are covered by the fund’s shareholders.

We’re mindful of year-end tax implications in our portfolio management approach.
When you make a withdrawal, change your allocation or your portfolio is rebalanced, we sell your assets in a specific order to help minimize this year’s tax bill: the ones with the lowest tax burden go first.
We include municipal bonds in the bond allocations of our portfolios, which provide federal tax-free income (keep in mind, state and local taxes may apply).
We’ll ask some questions about your risk tolerance and timeline to identify your investment goal.
Select a portfolio theme that best resonates with your point of view. Then, we’ll recommend a portfolio based on what you shared with us.
Once you’re set up, we’ll continue to do the work, monitoring your portfolio daily and rebalancing your account periodically to keep it aligned to your target allocation.
