Description
Monthly Fee $9.98

What management fees does Greenlight Max charge?

Many financial advisors charge based on how much money they oversee by using a fee-structure called “assets under management,” or AUM. For instance, a 0.40% fee translates to $4 per year for every $1,000 an investment advisor manages. Management fees, also known as maintenance fees, cover the operating costs of investment advisors and are typically deducted from your account every month or quarter. The management fee does not cover the underlying expense ratios of the investment vehicles purchased by investment advisors.

What are the investment expense ratios of Greenlight Max?

Hiring an investment advisor with competitive investment fees is one of the most important steps to maximizing your portfolio's performance. Investment expense ratios can vary drastically depending on the types of accounts and assets involved. A survey by the ICI puts the average expense ratio for actively managed funds at 0.76% and indexed funds at 0.08%. The investment expense ratios of an investment advisor will vary depending on the type of assets they invest in and whether they attach additional charges to fund fees.

Greenlight Max does not charge fees based on an investment expense ratio.

What features does Greenlight Max offer?

Access to human advisors: Robo-advisors are great at keeping costs down and helping investors with modest balances make good investment choices. However, it is also nice to have access to human financial advisors when you need them.

Greenlight Max is registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission, or SEC. Registered investment advisors are required to provide detailed information on the financial and legal status of the company and its staff. This allows investors to examine closely any conflicts of interest and look into the background of the company and its advisory team.
