Clients using all of our in house services will open a brokerage account with TD Ameritrade. American Capital then has a limited power of attorney from the Client to buy, sell, hold, redeem and otherwise trade Mutual Funds, Exchange Traded Funds (ETF’s), Stocks, Bonds and other securities subject to instructions provided by Client.
TD Ameritrade provides monthly statements and trade confirmations to the Client and electronic data to American Capital. Factors that we consider in recommending TD Ameritrade (or any other broker-dealer/custodian to clients) include historical relationship we have with the broker-dealer, financial strength, reputation, execution capabilities, pricing, research, and service. Although the commissions and/or transaction fees paid by our clients shall comply with our duty to obtain best execution, a client may pay a commission that is higher than another qualified broker-dealer might charge to effect the same transaction. Accordingly, although our firm will seek competitive rates, it may not necessarily obtain the lowest possible commission rates for client account transactions. The brokerage commissions or transaction fees charged by the designated broker-dealer/custodian are exclusive of, and in addition to, our investment management fee.
