For portfolios constructed with mutual funds, the minimum size portfolio is $200,000.00.  For portfolios constructed with stocks, the minimum size is $250,000.00.  For portfolios constructed with Limited Partnerships (managed futures funds), investors must be accredited and portfolios will need to be at least $1,000,000.00 in size.


For a description of our various types of investment portfolios, please see our Risk Spectrum chart.


Fees normally range from 45 basis points to 50 basis points depending upon the strategy, the number of accounts included within a portfolio and whether the portfolio is to be managed tax-efficiently or not.  Advisors who desire to have large amounts of monies managed directly by Legend will receive additional discounts.  Should other services be requested such as account establishment, fee calculations and performance reporting, additional fees will apply.
Please contact us if you would like more information on performance reporting.
