Why we prefer ETFs to Mutual Funds

Wealth Management

  1. ETFs typically have much lower expense ratios (ongoing expenses). 

  2. ETFs have no up-front or deferred sales charges (up to 8.5%).

  3. ETFs have no ongoing 12B-1 fees weighing down on returns.

  4. ETFs are more liquid because the are traded on the market and don't have surrender charges.

  5. ETFs are more tax efficient because less trading is done inside the accounts.

  6. ETFs have no minimum initial investment requirements beyond the value of a single share.

  7. ETFs tend to have higher returns than their mutual fund equivalents because of their fees. 

Our Service Fee vs. Others

*For all New accounts as of January 2022

Financial Advisor

.9%

  • A single low asset-based fee

  • There are no hidden fees, no trailing fees and no trade commissions

  • 100% Transparency, you will receive an advanced billing notice with an exact dollar amount that is charged.

  • It is billed quarterly and will total .9% annually.

  • This fee is all-inclusive, it includes the custodians' normal fees, the RIA's fees, and the advisor fees.

  • *Custodians may have additional special servicing fees for things like wire transfers and IRAs.

Fee-Only

???

  • Often have multiple layers of fees

  • Can hide fees in places like expense ratios

  • Often only disclose what is legally required after the fact.

  • Some may earn commission or production bonuses based on what products they sell. That's the main reason you hear so much about mutual funds, annuities, and insurance.

  • A large percentage of the proceeds of their fees often end up going to benefit the executives of large firms and out of the local economy.

Commission-Based Advisors

Consider the example of this couple entering retirement

They plan to rollover a $1,000,000 retirement account.

Commission-Based Advisors

  • Their cash would be invested into investments like ETFs with low expense ratios that average close to .1-.2%

  • The couple would receive an advanced billing notice that showed their first full quarter fees of about .225% or $2,250 will be taken out of the funds balance. The custodian company typically takes about 20% of that fee, then the RIA takes 10% of what is left, and then the remainder goes to T. Mann Financial, in this example: $1,620.

  • The total annual cost (.9% advisory and expense ratio) in this scenario would be about:  $10,000/year or 1%

  • Their investments could be sold at anytime without penalty, commission, or surrender charge. 

  • We can afford to charge less because we are 100% Independent.

  • The couple could for example be sold a Variable Annuity that invests in Mutual funds.

  • Annuities can have up to an 8.5% Sales Charge

  • This allows the financial advisor to be paid a commission of about $85,000.

  • To cover these costs and also to make a profit the Insurance companies limit the types of investments in the annuity to expensive mutual funds with expense ratios over 1%.

  • Additionally, the insurance company will lock up your investments and require a surrender charge of up to 8.5% in order to cover the commission paid to the advisor. Although this penalty will decrease overtime it often takes 7-8 years to be fully removed.

  • Additionally, the insurance company will charge the account balance "internal charges" that often total 2-3% annually

Socially Responsible Investing

Do your investments align with your values?

 

What is Socially Responsible Investing (SRI)?

SRI is an investment route that considers the environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) criteria in order to generate a competitive return on investments while making a positive societal impact. This includes companies that respect the environment, treat their employees and suppliers fairly and promote ethical policies.

It allows you to invest in social causes you care about - while working toward both positive change and financial gain.

Why would you choose Socially Responsible Investing?

There are several reasons people choose sustainable investing, including personal values, ethics, and goals. Sustainable investors try to aim for competitive returns on their investments, while also keeping in mind that their investments should be used to make a positive societal change. This also includes contributing to advancements in social, environmental, and governance practices.

Getting Started

Getting Started With Socially Responsible Investing

Start by identifying the level of risk you’re willing to take on. Consider your income and any current investments you have, including corporate-sponsored retirement plans. Then, define what “socially responsible,” “sustainable” and “impact” mean to you. Do you want to invest according to green energy or more in female-led companies? Think about your moral, ethical, religious and social values. Measure their potential to impact a specific cause or movement.

T. Mann Financial's Socially Responsible Investing process

  1. Identify Values- We have a conversation with our clients to identify what values they would like to see reflected in their investment portfolio.

  2. Select a Strategy- Our two main strategies for SRI are to either overweight SRI investments in a portfolio or to exclude specific non-SRI investments.

  3. Build the SRI Portfolio- We utilize Riskalize software to build a portfolio that matches our clients' risk scores and reflects the values they identified and the strategy they selected. 

For Example:

  1. Let's say that an investor from Eugene Oregon believes strongly in the need to reduce carbon emissions to help our planet. They also score an 80 on their risk analysis.

  2. The client could elect to overweight solar energy investments by adding a Solar ETF to their portfolio or they could choose to eliminate investments that include oil companies entirely.

  3. While building out a 80 risk score portfolio we would either increase the percentage of the portfolio invested in solar by adding a Solar ETF or restrict the ETFs, stocks, and bonds we select for the portfolio to non-oil companies.
