If your bracket changes during the quarter we will apply the corresponding higher or lower fee for the day(s) actually earned.

*Minimum Annual Management Fee is $1,000 and the minimum account size is $100,000.

Fees are negotiable for multiple accounts and the Client may combine accounts of lesser value to reach the minimum account size, or to obtain a reduced fee from reaching a higher bracket. The Client may terminate the advisory contract without penalty within five (5) business days after execution.

Fees will be based on the value of all the account assets (securities, cash and cash equivalents, and variable contracts) under our management as of the close of the last business day of each quarter as valued by the third party custodian(s) who hold the assets. To remove any conflicts of interest CWM charges fees on all assets under our management regardless of type, yield or positions held. Additional deposits to, or withdrawals from, (funds and/or securities) will be subject to proration for the actual number of days invested during the quarter, ie... Clients only pay for the number of days the assets are actually under our management. Our brackets are not cumulative, meaning Clients pay the highest obtained bracket percentage on their total assets under our management as calculated at the end of each quarter, subject to the proration calculation as previously described.
