What Is The Impact Of Trailer Fees?

February 18, 2011 - 0 comments

Over 80% of all mutual funds in the U.S. are purchased through an advisor.  Many mutual fund companies pay trailer fees to advisors for providing the service.  In 2009, this amounted to over $2 billion in Canada.

Are the any issues that are created by this compensation arrangement?

A study was recently released that looked into questions such as: Why do so many investors work with advisors, and why is it that so many advisors are paid by the investments, and not by clients directly?

Listen to host Leah Walker discuss this with Cameron on this week’s Science of Investing.
