Regarding “Soft Dollars,” this is a practice of paying broker-dealer firms for their services, i.e. research, cost for technology, periodicals, etc., through commission revenue on client trades versus direct payment by the Firm. TKM Financial Services, LLC does not participate in soft-dollar programs with any broker-dealers.
TKM Financial Services, LLC also does not accept 12(b)1 fees nor does it accept any commissions on mutual funds. This ensures a client-first philosophy and protocol.
Did You Know?
Many banks and broker/dealers receive sales commissions, "fee trailers" and/or 12(b)1 fee kickbacks from the mutual funds they use? TKM Financial Services, LLC does not participate in these commissions and soft-dollar arrangements, thus ensuring client interests are always ahead of its own!
The investment management fee schedule of many banks allows the bank to increase client fees without the client agreeing to such? The fee schedule of TKM Financial Services, LLC requires for both the firm and the client to agree on any fee increases.
