Implementation Fees (Step 4)
Fees charged by third parties are payable directly to them. Examples of third parties are legal fee, property agent's fee, stock brokerage fee and medical examinations.
Since a financial plan has to be reviewed regularly, there are fees for providing on-going advice. There are two fees involved. One set of fee is for providing on-going advice in all aspect of financial planning. Another set of fee is for managing investments. Clients will only be charged based on the higher amount. See the fee schedule here: Fees for on-going advice.
