We are a financial platform that finds hidden fees charged by your financial institution and helps you lower them.
We securely link to your investment institutions and review your records for investent fees. We then calculate the impact of those fees over time. If you're fees are too high, we'll help you lower them by either speaking directly with your investment advisor or connecting you with a financial professional who can assist.
Your custom report is 100% free! If you chose the negotiation route, we charge 40% of your first year’s savings (only if we're successful). So, if we save you $1,000 in the first year, you keep $600. You then keep the full savings each year after! If instead, you'd like us to connect you with a new financial institution or professional, you don't pay us a dime.

All data is reviewed as read-only, which means we can’t make any changes to your investments or investment accounts.

We created these charts to help you better understand the various fees you may be incurring:

|Annual Operating Expenses / Expense Ratio||Various fees deducted from a fund’s assets, such as management, distribution, service, and expense fees.||Ongoing|
|Redemption Fees||Redemption fees are charged when shares are sold from a fund too early. They are often used as penalties to discourage short-term trading. Other names include: exit, market timing, or short-term trading fees.||Transaction|
|Sales Load (Front/Back)||Sales loads, like commissions, pay financial professionals for selling mutual funds to you. They can be assessed at the time of investment, known as front-end, or assessed if you resell the fund early, known as back-end.||Transaction|
|Brokerage Fee||An umbrella term for fees charged by brokers to manage your account. Brokerage fees can include: annual, inactivity, research, trading, paper statement, account closing, or transfer fees.||Ongoing|
|Commissions||The fee charged when a broker or your advisor buys or sells an investment.||Transaction|

No. You only pay 40% of one year’s savings and enjoy reduced fees for life.
