TIAA Personal Portfolio FAQ

What fees does TIAA Personal Portfolio charge?

TIAA Personal Portfolio uses a fee-only model.

This means TIAA Personal Portfolio gets paid a flat fee regardless of what financial products or services you use. It also means they have a fiduciary responsibility to their clients. Instead of making money on trades commissions or selling products, they recommend an asset allocation and get paid a flat-fee or a percentage of the assets under administration. That requires that they act in their client’s financial best interest at all times.

TIAA Personal Portfolio uses a commission-based model. In other words, they get a commission when they sell you investment products, such as stocks or mutual funds.

What management fees does TIAA Personal Portfolio 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.
