If you'd prefer not to be involved in day-to-day investment decisions, Advisory Solutions Fund Models let you delegate that work to a team of investment professionals. After you select a portfolio objective and a Fund Model, a team of research analysts will manage your chosen Model.
First, we'll help you select a portfolio objective. This will serve as a guide for your overall investment strategy by determining the target allocation ranges for investments you should have in your portfolio – based on your risk tolerance, timeline and goals. Using that information, we'll help you choose from over 90 Research Models we have available. After that, professionals will manage your chosen model, making the day-to-day investment decisions to keep your account aligned with your portfolio objective and our guidance.
Each Research Model is designed by a team of professionals at Edward Jones and contains a mix of mutual funds and/or exchange-traded funds (ETFs). The advantage of using a fund model is that your portfolio's investments are instantly diversified and pre-selected to meet a specific goal.
We will monitor your account and automatically rebalance it if it drifts from your model's target allocation ranges. This helps ensure your investments stay aligned with our guidance and your needs and goals. In addition to regular account statements that detail your progress, you'll receive quarterly performance reports and meet with your financial advisor at least once a year to review your progress.
To get started with an Advisory Fund Model, you will need an initial investment of $25,000 or more. The program fee for Advisory Solutions Fund Models starts at 1.35%, with an administrative fee of 0.09%, and does not include internal expenses of the investments you own. The fee covers your financial advisor's services, all trades and rebalancing, the benefit of our diversification guidance and more. Your program fee may be lower depending on the value of your assets in the program. Paying an ongoing fee can make expenses more predictable but can be more expensive over time.
The program fee for benefit plan accounts starts at 1.5%. All accounts must meet a $10 minimum monthly fee, which could make the program fee higher than 1.35%. For additional details regarding fees and expenses associated with Edwards Jones Advisory Solutions, please see the Brochure and Fee Schedule.
