The first question future clients often ask is "what are the fees?" There is no such thing as a free investment. Even a do-it-yourself portfolio of index funds will have an expense ratio. It is important to understand the costs associated with financial advice and investing. An Average Wall Street broker receives a 40% payout (i.e. $100k in commission the broker share is $40k the firm retains $60k). VIMA receives 100% of management fees so we are significantly more competitive than Wall Street firms. As a fiduciary, VIMA must act in the clients "best interest" while Wall Street only has to do what is "suitable" for clients. If you research the difference I am confident you will realize VIMA has the most ethical compensation model in the advisory business.
