Assets Under Management (AUM)
Fees are based on the client’s Assets Under Management (AUM),
meaning the amount of the client’s liquid investable assets that Ella Financial Advising oversees.
It is a standard practice in the financial services industry to charge an annual fee of 1% of Assets Under Management, though we charge less for a higher AUM.
Liquid Assets includes: cash, stocks, bonds, funds, retirement funds, and more (but not real estate).
The higher the AUM amount, the lower the fees.
The fees are typically paid quarterly and pulled directly out of the investment accounts.
