Conflict Questions


After checking the regulatory records of Renaud & Company, our system has identified the following question(s) to ask. Learn more.


What percentage of income does Renaud & Company receive from fees versus commissions?


Renaud & Company can accept commissions for its investment advisory services. These commissions may be earned from the sale of investment or insurance products and are paid by the companies providing the products being sold. While this allows for a broader range of investment options and management styles a firm can offer, it can also create an incentive for the firm to put their financial interests ahead of your own. Is the firm’s purpose to provide you financial planning and ongoing advice or to sell commission-based products to its clients?


Does Renaud & Company offer mutual funds that have 12b-1 fees?


12b-1 fees increase the total annual cost of owning a mutual fund with no guarantee of higher returns. Some firms receive these fees as payments, which creates an incentive to promote them.


How does Renaud & Company approach insurance sales? What conflicts do I need to be made aware of?


Currently Renaud & Company actively practices as insurance brokers or agents, or they are affiliated with an insurance company or agency. This arrangement creates a conflict where the firm and its representatives may be motivated to insure clients with products, including annuities and life insurance, that generate high sales commissions when lower-cost alternatives may exist.


Does Renaud & Company offer products that have performance-based fees, or does it accept performance-based fees? Will any of my assets be invested in those products?


When performance-based fees are charged, the financial advisor is paid for outperforming a benchmark, typically an index. While this may seem like an attractive compensation structure to ensure your advisor is making your money work for you, often, the managers of those products are incentivized to take inappropriate risks to beat their performance benchmark. For instance, research has shown that mutual funds that use incentive fees take on more risk that funds that do not, and tend to double down and increase their risk following a poor performance. This could be detrimental to a client during down markets.


Does Renaud & Company perform side-by-side management? How does Renaud & Company mitigate conflicts that arise from managing accounts with differing fee structures?


This typically occurs when firms manage mutual funds or hedge funds alongside smaller retail accounts. Side-by-side management can create an incentive for the advisor to favor the larger funds, potentially leading to unequal trading costs and unfavorable trade executions for their retail clients.


Does Renaud & Company accept soft-dollar benefits? How do these benefits affect the firm’s selection of a broker-dealer partner?


Renaud & Company receives soft-dollar benefits that could incentivize them to push trades through broker-dealers that provide advantages to the firm instead of through broker-dealers that could provide the best trade execution for their clients.

Cost


Unfortunately, there is no single, uniform pricing standard for working with a financial advisor. Catchphrases, including "fee-only," can be helpful; however, Americans often get confused with competitors promoting "fee-based" in response.

Ultimately, to understand the underlying costs of advisory services, we always recommend asking for an itemized fees breakdown and reading the firm's ADV Part 2 Brochure (Item 5, "Fees and Compensation").
