The Premier Investment Program offers superior personalized service and broad investment choices that are vital in helping you achieve your financial goals.
Simple, Flexible Program Fee
Transparency, objectivity and accountability are the hallmarks of the Premier Investment Program. My investment expertise, advice and financial planning services combined with account administration and trading, are bundled into a flexible and transparent asset-based fee.
The Premier Investment Program fee is reflective of the ongoing investment advice and service you receive from your Manulife Securities advisor. It’s based on the value of expertise and not on the number of transactions made, thereby ensuring complete objectivity in the decision-making process.
In consultation, we will agree on a program fee, based on the market value of your portfolio, that will represent the appropriate level of service that I as your advisor will deliver to meet your investment needs.
Combine Your Accounts Into A Single Premier Investment Plan
In the Premier Investment Program, you can combine accounts held by you and family members living at the same address, under one Plan and one fee. This pooling of accounts allows you to potentially benefit from lower fees that are typically offered at higher asset levels.
You Are Paying For Investment Advice
Not Just Transactions
A fee-based approach changes the traditional transactional compensation model.
The fee you pay is compensation for the investment planning and advice that your advisor provides to you. Transactions are incidental and are not the differentiating factor in assessing the value your Manulife Securities advisor offers.
Tax Deductibility Of The Fee
Where the fee relates to investment planning and advisory services on your portfolio outside of your registered retirement plans, the fee is generally tax deductible. Every opportunity to legitimately reduce your tax burden has value and should be considered. You should consult with your tax advisor about your personal circumstances.
Flexible And Transparent Fee Payment Options
The Premier Investment Program offers you the flexibility to choose your fee payment frequency (monthly, quarterly or annually) and the option to automatically withdraw fees from a designated Premier Investment account(s). Other fee payment options, including electronic funds transfer (EFT) and payment by credit card are available, allowing you to select the payment method that best suits your needs.
Fees will be clearly reported on your statements and on an annual fee summary so that you know exactly what you’re paying.
Maximize Your Portfolio Value
When the fees are paid with funds outside of your Premier Investment account, you are not drawing on your portfolio, allowing you to maximize the growth potential of your investments.
Hold A Wide Array Of Investment Types
Within your Premier Investment account, you can hold a wide array of investment types, giving you the flexibility to work with your advisor to build a portfolio that meets your investment objectives. Additional management fees and/or other costs may be associated with certain securities. Please discuss this with your advisor to determine if these fees apply to you.
Control Over Your Investments
The Premier Investment Program is designed so that you work with your Manulife Securities advisor to build and manage your portfolio. You’ll benefit from the expertise and guidance of your advisor in managing your investments, while maintaining complete control over the decision making process.
