Not long ago I was meeting with a couple who were relatively new clients. We were going over data on a recent mutual fund investment, and I commented that I was surprised to see the fund offered a commission of 2.25%. As a fee-only financial planner, I rarely pay much attention to whether a fund pays a commission to a broker. I purchase mutual funds on behalf of my clients through a discount broker where no commissions are included in the price.Rick Kahler, CFP, resides in Rapid City, South Dakota and is a fee-only financial planner.
