In order to continue to deliver value to our Clients, we conducted a comprehensive review of our fund line up. Therefore, we have updated our fees and rebate schedules (fees in each tier).

The changes will occur on April 21st , 2021 and apply to all Choices savings and income plan Clients. The fee changes depend on the Client’s funds and the tier they are in.

What does this mean for you as an advisor?

Nothing changes. The commission schedule for Choices products remains the same.

How will we communicate these fee changes?

We’ll advise Clients of these fee changes which are effective April 21st, 2021 as indicated in the table below.
