  • Asset-Based Fee

    Quarterly fees for investment account management services are based on a percentage of your assets, which aligns your adviser’s interests with yours.

    Fees are based solely on the level of assets in your account, independent of the level of trading activity. By deciding to pay a fee based on services provided rather than transactions, you should understand that the fee may be higher than the cost of a commission alternative during periods of lower trading activity.
  • Things to consider

    There are many factors to consider when deciding if a fee-based account is right for you.

    Before making a decision, you should consider: your past and anticipated investment activity; past and anticipated use of the products and services available in the account; the value and type of eligible assets; the costs and potential benefits of the service; investment objectives and goals; additional financial and planning services provided by your IAR; and personal preferences concerning available payment alternatives.

    You should also consider whether it would be better to pay separately for each trade executed and each product and service used. Since these factors may change, you should periodically re-evaluate whether the ongoing use of a particular asset-based fee program continues to be appropriate for your needs.

    Please ask your IAR for a complete schedule of charges. The schedule is available in the HMII & BNY Mellon Advisors’ Forms ADV Part 2A disclosure brochure or the BNY Mellon Advisors Investment Advisory Agreement.

    HMII’s IARs will always help you construct your financial portfolio with products to help assist you with your goals. By doing so, our investment adviser representatives will use every investment tool possible to help you reach the financial goals of you and your family.

Further information on the funds selected for the specific portfolios is available by prospectus, which can be obtained through your HMII Investment Adviser Representative. Investors should carefully consider the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses of mutual funds and exchange-traded funds (ETFs) before investing. All investments are subject to risk. The prospectus contains this and other information about the funds and should be read carefully.

Asset allocation and diversification does not ensure a profit or protect against a loss. There is no assurance that any investment strategy will be successful.

Past performance is not a guarantee of future results. Indices are not available for direct investment. Any investor who attempts to mimic the performance of an index would incur fees and expenses which would reduce returns.

It is important to review your investment objectives, risk tolerance, tax objectives and liquidity needs before choosing an investment style or manager. All investments carry a certain degree of risk and no one particular investment style or manager is suitable for all types of investors.
