Return Tool


We often hear the question: how does my financial advisor get paid? This is a very important question and one that should be met with transparency. Dentro Financial is paid by its clients through a fee charged on their assets under management. Dentro Financial's fees are made up of three components. First, there is a fund level expense that is paid to each individual fund. In almost every case this totals 0.12% per year. Second, there is a fee paid to our asset management partner for administering the investments. This fee is either 0.30% per year or $80 per month, whichever is lower. Third, there is a flat 1.00% fee paid to Dentro Financial for the wealth management and financial planning services you receive.

For full transparency, our fee tool below lets you see for yourself how much the average mutual fund company charges Canadians and how much you could potentially save by making the switch.
