Other Fees (Non-Blue Water)
- Attorney: Blue Water does not write legal documents. We will refer you to an estate planning attorney for trusts, wills, power of attorneys, etc.
- CPA / Tax Preparer: Blue Water does not provide tax preparation services, but we can provide a referral.
- Custodian Expenses: For the most part, there are no trading fees for the exchange-traded funds (ETFs), mutual funds and stocks we use. A few mutual funds have transaction charges that generally range from $7 to $15 per trade. This is how the custodian is paid.
- Portfolio Expenses: There are no upfront or deferred sales charges. However, each fund charges an expense ratio. The expense ratios of the portfolios we construct typically range from 0.10% - 0.20% depending on the stock-to-bond ratio and customizations. This is how the fund companies are paid.
