How Custodian Life compensates Financial Advisers
Financial adviser compensation can be a complex mixture of commission-based pay, asset-based pay and incentives related to meeting other key objectives and metrics.
Financial adviser pay based on commissions is the traditional method within the financial services industry. This is shorthand for saying that Clients are charged a fee, usually a commission, for each security transaction made, whether to buy or to sell. The Financial Adviser, in turn, receives a portion of these commission back as compensation.
An increasingly popular option for Financial Adviser pay is based upon the value of the financial assets in the policyholder’s account. This way of compensate the Financial Adviser is called asset-based pay.
Custodian Life primarily compensate Financial Adviser’s based on the fees and commission that the Policyholder pay us according to the products and services the Policyholder choose.
