6) frequently asked questions Why is there an account minimum? It is very difficult to provide the necessary asset allocation diversity needed to construct an efficient and effective portfolio with holdings less than the $100,000 (MERCURY) minimum level. The greater the value of the account, the more latitude the portfolio manager has to include specific securities such as stocks, bonds, options, ETFs and mutual funds, to provide a diversified portfolio. Individual security selection begins at the $500,000 (GEMINI) level and is dependent upon the securities that you may already hold in your account in combination with a need for suitable, diversified asset allocation. Combining accounts in one household may be used when determining account size. What services are included for the fees charged for professional portfolio management? Ameritas Investment Partners Wealth Management program provides single fee pricing.* There will be no additional charges for brokerage commissions, trading costs or custodian fees. The fee will be charged quarterly, in advance, based upon the market value of the Ameritas Investment Partners managed account on the last day of the previous quarter. Your fee includes: • Asset allocation recommendations • Professional asset management • Compensation to the introducing Investment Advisor Representative • Operational transaction costs for trading activity in the account • Custodian fees • Internet access to your account via our website What are the advantages of having a professional portfolio management team? The increasing complexities of the investment markets have led more investors to turn to professionals to manage their assets. Many decide they don’t have the time, resources or professional training to research, select and monitor the investments in their account. The economies of scale offered by a firm that invests large amounts of institutional assets may provide cost savings to the investor not available on an individual level. The Ameritas Investment Partners Wealth Management team has access to research information not generally available to the individual investor. * Please note that accounts will indirectly bear the underlying expenses charged by mutual funds and/or ETFs in your portfolio and affect a client’s overall investment performance. Also, Ameritas Investment Partners has arranged for Chicago Clearing Corporation (CCC) to provide class action litigation monitoring and securities claim filing administration for a contingency fee of 20% of the amount of each claim settlement award. 6 AIP 1005 WM Client Brochure CMYK.indd 6 12/22/2014 10:01:57 AM
