The Low Fee Advantage

A typical financial advisor collect fees of 1% per year on average for their clients. That’s much too high given the technological advances in investment management industry over the past 20 years. High advisor fees persist because the public doesn’t know that a low cost advisor service exists. ELC Advisors has an investment management fee that is a fraction of the national average. This fee covers all services and expert advice. A substantial fee savings keeps more money in your pocket and compounds into greater wealth.
