Compensation arrangements for financial advice or planning can vary over a wide range depending on asset size, types of investments, and services requested. The above table illustrates typical costs incurred under commonly used compensation arrangements. The actual cost an adviser or planner charges may be higher or lower than the cost estimate shown here.

Additionally, advisor compensation structures do not align with investor interests. This results in ‘additional costs’.

The drive to use higher commission paying investments often compromises objectivity of commission-based advisors. The relatively large advisor compensation tied to purchase or sale of investments could compel clients to own assets even after they turn undesirable. This in turn can affect performance.

The compensation structure of fee-only advisors leaves them with no stake in client’s plan or its performance. This could encourage such advisors to minimize effort.

Fee-based advisors usually earn fees as well as commissions based on the investment product they sell. The client pays the fee and the product’s financial institution pays the commission. This compensation structure often compromises objectivity in selecting investments and encourages advisors to churn the account, i.e., trade excessively.
