Item 3.

What fees will I pay?


For investments in certain products like mutual funds, annuities, and alternative investments, we receive transaction-based fees from the investment product sponsor in the form of asset-based sales charges (e.g., sales loads). These fees are based on the amount invested in a product and, depending on the product, may be based on how long you hold the investment. Our receipt of asset-based sales loads creates an incentive to recommend products or sponsors that include such charges.


Investment management fees are billed quarterly, in arrears, meaning that we invoice you after the three-month billing period has ended.  Payment in full is expected upon invoice presentation.  Fees are usually deducted from a designated client account to facilitate billing.  The client must consent in advance to direct debiting of their investment account.

Custodians may charge transaction fees on purchases or sales of certain mutual funds and exchange-traded funds.  These transaction charges are usually small and incidental to the purchase or sale of a security.  The selection of the security is more important than the nominal fee that the custodian charges to buy or sell the security.

HHCM, in its sole discretion, may waive its minimum fee and/or charge a lesser investment advisory fee based upon certain criteria (e.g., historical relationship, type of assets, anticipated future earning capacity, anticipated future additional assets, dollar amounts of assets to be managed, related accounts, account composition, negotiations with clients, etc.).

"You will pay fees and costs whether you make or lose money on your investments. Fees and costs will reduce any amount of money you make on your investments over time. Please make sure you understand what fees and costs you are paying.";

Conversation Starters.  Ask your financial professional—

"What are your legal obligations to me when providing recommendations as my broker-dealer or when acting as my investment adviser? How else does your firm make money and what conflicts of interest do you have?";

  • Help me understand how these fees and costs might affect my investments. If I give you $10,000 to invest, how much will go to fees and costs, and how much will be invested for me?

"When we provide you with a recommendation at your broker-dealer or act as your investment adviser, we have to act in your best interest and not put our interest ahead of yours. At the same time, the way we make money creates some conflicts with your interests. You should understand and ask us about these conflicts because they can affect the recommendations and investment advice, we provide you." Here are some examples to help you understand what this means."
