FAQ

What exactly is a Registered Investment Advisor?

 

A Registered Investment Advisor (RIA) is an entity that is registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and is subject to the Investors Advisor Act of 1940. An RIA must follow a Fiduciary standard, which always puts the client’s interest first. This is a higher legal standard than registered representatives of Broker-Dealers are held to; their standard is “Suitability” – simply that the recommendation is suitable for the Client.


What are your fees?

 

Depending on the services rendered, our hourly fee ranges from $150-300.

 

See our investment management fee schedule below. The maximum fee for accounts over $200,000 is 0.60% annually. We believe this is substantially below the fees charged by similar advisors or broker dealers offering similar services.* We are able to do this by using cutting edge technology and carefully managing our overhead. Our clients benefit from these savings. We use a “household” or “family member” system of aggregating assets for the purpose of determining fees.

 

The following are the fees charged by Hudson View Advisors, LLC for services provided:

 

HVALLC will not be compensated on the basis of a share of capital gains upon or capital appreciation of the funds or any portion of the funds of the Account. There is no account minimum. Assets under management with less than $200,000 pay 0.72% annually.

Can you make recommendations to us for an attorney/accountant/insurance agent/etc.?

 

We absolutely can, especially if you live in the tri-state area. We have excellent relations with other professionals.
