Competitive Fee Analysis - fee only financial advisor

UAK Diversified's clients are likely to pay a much lower fee for excellent services

  • Some financial advisors arrange clients’ investment accounts such that the overall annual fee could reach around 2% for an account size less than $1M. UAK Diversified thinks it shouldn’t be that way and will strive to keep the client’s total annual fee as low as possible well below 1%..
  • The only source of revenue for UAK Diversified is the asset-based fee at a predetermined fee rate schedule. No financial planning fees, no commissions from insurance products, and no other platform fees.
  • The client is responsible for the other expenses associated with holding exchange traded funds or index funds, which is significantly lower than typical financial advisors' recommended mutual fund products.
  • We are fee only financial planner. We offer financial and investment planning services to Minneapolis, Saint Paul, Rochester areas.  

Most of Other Financial Advisors...

Frequently use expensive products for clients but higher compensating for advisors (Mutual funds with around 0.8~1.2% fees, structured securities, various platform fees) in addition to the very high Asset Under Management fees (a.k.a. AUM fees). 


Despite the high fee, it is very hard to beat the market with mutual funds. So typically, investors don't get what you pay for with mutual funds.
