Service fees may apply for certain account activities that fall outside of routine client account management functions and are listed in our Special Service Fees.
Trading Service Fees are fees to offset regulatory, transaction, and processing costs imposed on brokers relating to sell transactions in certain securities. The fees include the FINRA Trading Activity Fee (TAF) and other fees imposed by the NASDAQ trade reporting facility and are calculated for certain securities based on the sale proceeds and the number of shares sold.
Trading Service Fees are calculated using the following formula and are rounded to the nearest penny.
Trading Service Fees = [($0.000119 * shares sold in each trade) or $5.95, whichever is less] + [$0.0000184 * sale proceeds in each trade] + [($0.00002 * sale proceeds in each trade) or $5.00, whichever is less]
For example, if you sold 200 shares of a security for $5,000.00, the Trading Service Fees would be equal to $0.22.
$0.22 = [($0.000119 * 200) + ($0.0000184 * $5,000.00) + ($0.00002 * $5,000.00)]

Through Folio Investments, Inc., we are a member of the Securities Investor Protection Corporation (SIPC) which protects the securities of its members’ customers up to $500,000 for each customer (including $100,000 on claims for cash). SIPC covers against losses stemming from a member broker-dealer’s financial failure. A brochure explaining the coverage provided by SIPC is available on its website at www.sipc.org. In addition to SIPC coverage, FOLIOfn has also purchased from certain underwriters at Lloyd’s, supplemental customer securities insurance with a total aggregate limit of $50 million. This coverage is limited to a combined return of $10 million to any customer from SIPC and certain underwriters at Lloyd’s. Neither SIPC coverage nor supplemental insurance protect against losses resulting from a decline in the market value of securities.
Cash deposits are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), an independent agency created by the U.S. Congress in 1933 to help maintain public confidence in the nation’s financial system. One of its primary duties is to insure deposits in banks and thrift institutions.
