Mutual Fund Fees

We currently offer no-load mutual funds. We may impose a commission charge for handling these mutual funds. Most mutual funds have early redemption fees and investment minimums which you can review here. Note that most mutual funds charge management, marketing and administration fees that are deducted directly from fund assets. We receive compensation from certain mutual fund companies for the recordkeeping, shareholder services, and other administrative services that we provide to shareholders of the funds. These shareholder services include transaction processing, settlement of trades, dividend distribution, record maintenance, and distribution of statements, confirmations, prospectuses and other regulatory shareholder documents.

Early Redemption Fees assessed by mutual funds vary by fund. Consult your prospectus for applicable charges.

Note: Other services may be available now or in the future—to see your account-specific pricing, log into your account and view Pricing Plan Details on the Settings page. Prices subject to change.
