Independent Salt Lake City Financial Advisor Communicates Difference Between Fee Only and Fee Based

Fee only financial planners never accept commissions or compensation from the products they recommend. Fee based financial planners have the ability to collect fees from their clients, but can also collect commissions from the products they sell.

 
PRLog - Aug. 27, 2009 - SALT LAKE CITY -- Fee only financial planners never accept commissions or compensation from the products they recommend. They are compensated only by their clients and their compensation is the same regardless of the products they recommend. This compensation structure enables fee only planners to truly represent their clients rather than an insurance or brokerage firm signing their paycheck. Consequently, they can focus on doing what is in the absolute best interest of their client without worrying about maximizing their own compensation. Finally, most fee only financial planners have a fiduciary responsibility to always do what is in their client's best interest. Working with a fiduciary is critical.

Fee based financial planners have the ability to collect fees from their clients, but they also have the ability to collect commissions from the products they sell. Thus, fee based planners may charge the client a fee for managing assets, but may also collect commissions from a mutual fund that charges the client ridiculously high fees. Additionally, fee based advisors have the ability to collect commissions from selling insurance and annuity policies which may not be the best fit for the client. Finally, many fee based advisors are only held to a suitability standard, meaning they agree to act in a way which does not harm the client.
