If you like being involved with your investments, Guided Solutions Fund Account offers a hands-on approach with automated features to guide you.
We'll start by discussing your goals and risk tolerance. This will help you select the portfolio objective that's right for your situation. Your portfolio objective will determine the recommended asset allocation ranges of stocks, bonds, cash and other investments you can own to reach your goal. This will serve as the framework for how you and your financial advisor build your portfolio. When building your portfolio, as long as you stay within the guidance provided by Edward Jones investing professionals, the final decisions on all buys and sells are made by you.
With Guided Solutions Fund Account, you'll have the ability to choose from an extensive list of eligible mutual funds and exchange-traded funds (ETFs). Mutual funds and ETFs hold many investments inside of them, providing diversification within your portfolio. The initial investment minimum to open an account is just $5,000.
In addition to monitoring by you and your financial advisor, built-in guardrails help you keep your investments aligned to Edward Jones guidance and your portfolio objective. Advanced technology works behind the scenes to automatically rebalance your portfolio once a year. You can also make changes anytime you like and request to rebalance as often as monthly.
The Guided Solutions Fund Account program fee starts at 1.35% and does not include internal expenses of the investments you own. It 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 Guided Solutions, please see the Brochure and Fee Schedule.
