The Dreaded Transfer Fee

Fees, fees, and more fees. It’s one of the many ways broker-dealers fill their vaults with gold. Your gold. But what’s behind these fees? Until now with the advent of the digital age and modern regulations, there has been little transparency behind them. A recent study did a deep dive into industry practices and got the inside scoops on fees. Today we’re going to focus on one of the most important of those: The transfer fee.

Much as when you switch your wireless carrier, they stick up barbed wire–egregious fees– to deter you from escaping. Well, it’s no different with many broker-dealers.

This study analyzed data from large clearing firms that provide clearing services to broker-dealers, and found that brokers were charging markups for outgoing account transfers up to 280%! You read that last part right. 280%. (Source) Broker-dealers like Motif ($65) and ETrade ($75). That’s per account. That’s how deep broker-dealers reach into your pockets.

We don’t subscribe to the theory of outrageous markups and commissions that often plague customers of other broker-dealers. We’re in it for the long-haul. We find it more profitable to treat our clients the way they should be treated and keep their business for the long-term; than to “mug” them in the short term until they have no choice but to leave. Not without paying the fees out the door of course.

However, we here at Just2Trade understand that these fees may worry you if you’re on the fence about switching. An average transfer for a smaller advisor may cost around $2,000 in transfer fees! So, to ease your mind, we’re starting a program where we may cover a portion or all of your transfer fees if you switch to Just2Trade, up to $2000.

Feel free to contact us and see if you qualify. Sign up for demo version here: Just2Trade RIA. We look forward to working with you.

Warm regards,
