Fees or expenses

We are a fee-only practice, our income is derived solely from a transparent fee based on the value of your portfolio. Rutherford Rede will charge a fee for the financial advice that is provided to you and for any DIMS service provided to you. The fee charged will depend on the nature of the financial advice and service that we provide.

  • Our advisers may charge on an hourly charge.
  • Our advisers may charge a one-off fee for writing a financial plan to meet your goals.
  • Any ongoing fee (Financial Advice and/or DIMS) is based on funds under management and is charged in tranches that reduce as the portfolio grows.
  • Investments held in the MMC Wealth are subject to custodial fees.

The exact fees will be agreed with you prior to undertaking any chargeable work.  Hourly and one-off fees are payable within 7 days of the date you receive the invoice.  Ongoing fees are deducted from the portfolio cash account monthly in arrears.

Conflicts of interest and commissions

We manage and structure our business, and remuneration, to avoid conflicts of interest.  We use appropriate product research to ensure that the products we recommend to the client are suitable for their needs and are not influenced by the commission or remuneration associated with them. Our financial advisers provide financial advice on a Rutherford Rede DIMS facility, among other financial advice products, and are remunerated as a portion of the fee our clients pay.

As a business, we have no contractual relationships with any product providers that requires our advisers to place business with them; nor do our financial advisers. Any commission, brokerage, or other form of payment available to us from making investment recommendations, are fully rebated to our clients. We have a policy of not partaking in, or accepting, investment commission or ‘soft dollar’ incentive schemes. From time to time, we may receive business support services from suppliers, which may include training and educational assistance.
