Choose the Right Partner

When you consider a firm to invest with — either for your first investment account or an additional one — there are some important questions to consider before you take the plunge.

  • Scottrade’s Brokerage Commissions & Fees schedule can be found on this simple one-page document.

    The management fee charged on Guidance Solutions managed accounts from Scottrade Investment Management is inclusive of all fees charged. Clients who are referred to third-party advisors through our Advisor Access program should find out about fees from their advisor. Click here for information on Scottrade Investment Management Fees.

  • We believe offering choice and transparency into what is already available in the marketplace is most important. Unlike many of our competitors, Scottrade does not have proprietary securities, so you can truly choose what’s best for you.

  • If you are in a self-directed account, you decide how and when to rebalance and commission costs may apply. Scottrade provides tools like the Portfolio Review Tool to help you know when to rebalance and commission-free dividend reinvestment through FRIP, our Flexible Reinvestment Program to help you reduce your commission costs, minimizing the impact to your returns.

    For Guidance Solutions managed accounts with S&P Global or Blackrock portfolios provided by Scottrade Investment Management, the portfolio managers from those companies rebalance based upon market conditions as they deem appropriate.

    For clients who have been referred to a registered investment advisor through Advisor Access, the advisor would rebalance his or her clients’ accounts as appropriate and commissions may be charged.
