A question we’re often asked is, ‘Do we charge exit fees?’
The simple answer is ‘No’. We’re so confident that once you start working with us, the benefits of having us by your side means you’ll want to remain a client, our client retention rate is testament to this.
Please note the ongoing fee is 0.5% of the assets you have with us so this fee will increase as your investment grows. Increased fees are a sign that your investments are growing.
The above fee calculator is to give you an illustration of the fees payable to Herbert & Webster. There may be additional fees depending on the investment solution we agree on.
Try comparing us to other IFAs and you’ll find it’s very difficult, as from the research we’ve done, most are very vague when it come to their fees. You can be confident when choosing us that you know exactly what our fees will be before we start working together.
