Beware of High Commission Products

Stockbrokers are essentially salesmen that primarily work for commissions. The commission’s stockbrokers earn varies between the types of securities products. In general, securities products that are more complex and high risk offer better commissions. Unfortunately, the high commissions stockbrokers earn may provide them with enough incentive to make unsuitable investment recommendations. Investors should be made aware, that their stockbroker may not have their best interested in mind. The following includes some of the highest commission earning securities products:

8% – 10%   Hedge Fund
5% – 10%   Private Placement
3% – 7%     Non-traded REIT
3% – 7%     Variable Annuity
2% – 5%     Mutual Fund
2% – 4.5%  Closed-End Fund
2% – 4%     Managed Futures
2% – 3%     Structured Products
