Our Fee Cap

Small fees make the biggest difference.

It is traditional among brokers, advisors and wealth management firms to charge you an un-ending percentage of your investment portfolio. The larger your investment portfolio, the more you pay in fees. For example, an investor with €3m will pay 3x the fees that an investor with €1m pays.

For your benefit, the flat fee for the Informed Decisions MasterPlan™ process and implementation is €3,950. Most impactfully, our annual Advisory Fee is capped at €9,800, when your invested assets with us exceed €1.4m. Thanks to this, you can save literally tens of thousands every year versus traditional wealth managers and broker schemes.

Example One - €1.8m invested via Informed Decisions

If total pension/investment assets with us is €1.8m, your total yearly fee is c1.04%. The industry average for pensions/investments is 2.1%, when all hidden fees are included

You save almost
€20,000 per year in hidden fees*
*Industry average fee of €37,800 (2.1%) versus €18,800 (1.04%) with us, which includes all fund/platform/advisory services
*2.1% according to this Dept of Social Protection research
*Assuming no-growth – even higher savings if we included growth!

Example Two - €3m invested via Informed Decisions

If total pension/investment assets with us is €3m, your total yearly fee is c0.83%. The industry average for pensions/investments is 2.1%, when all hidden fees are included
