While there is no fee to initiate a fund with us, we do charge an annual administrative fee to help offset the cost of operating the fund, and there is a fund manager fee set by the individual investment managers.

Our goal is to provide fundholders with exceptional service and fund management; the fees assessed allow us to do just that.
