How we are paid

Yes, we are paid for what we do.  As a Certified Financial Planner and Investment Advisor for Manulife Securities Incorporated, and Life Insurance Advisor for Manulife Securities Insurance Inc., I do continuing education and continuous client service to ensure your portfolio is suitable and that you are on track to meet your goals.  Generally my clients compensate me by paying a percent on the assets I administer for them.   For Mutual Funds, this fee can be visible or embedded in the Management Expense Ratio (MER), which often runs between 1.9% and 2.6% of the assets.  We are always looking for ways to minimize the fees you pay, and to maximize the value you receive, and are happy to discuss all of the alternatives with you.  Click here for an infographic on the value you receive for your mutual fund fees.

Britain has voted to exit from the European Union - it is big news, and the uncertainty is causing some market volatility.  Be patient, as this exit will take time to execute, and over time the uncertainties will become known and the clouds will clear!  See this brief video with commentary from Manulife about the Brexit results, and watch for more updates.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=84bOOm9siuk
