Help me understand how these fees and costs might affect my investments. If I give you $10,000 to invest, how much will go to fees and costs, and how much will be invested for me?

What are your legal obligations to me when acting as my investment adviser? How else does your firm make money and what conflicts of interest do you have?

When we act as your investment adviser, we have to act in your best interest and not put our interest ahead of yours. At the same time, the way we make money creates some conflicts with your interests. You should understand and ask us about these conflicts because they can affect the investment advice we provide you. An example to help you understand what this means are Third-Party Payments. Third-Party Payments are compensation we receive from third parties when we recommend or sell certain investments.

More information may be obtained on the Form Adv, Part 2A brochure.

How might your conflicts of interest affect me, and how will you address them?

In certain instances, we may receive certain charges imposed by custodians, brokers and other third parties.
