Accounts, Fees & Commissions

All WISE brokerage accounts are non-discretionary, which means that the client retains full control over the account and has ultimate responsibility for all trading decisions. Clients can rely on our relationship managers for guidance, if they choose, or make their own investment decisions. Either way, our traders will not execute a transaction without first receiving verbal or written authorisation from the client.

  1. WISE will deduct from the account all commissions, transaction charges, administrative or custody fees applicable to the account.
  2. Commissions and transaction charges will be charged at WISE's customary rates in place from time to time or as negotiated from time to time.
  3. Administrative fees and custody fees will be charged at WISE's customary rates in place from time to time or as negotiated from time to time. WISE may at its sole discretion may change its administrative fees, custody fees or charges by giving you 60 days prior written notice of such change.
  4. Unless otherwise agreed, WISE provides what is commonly referred to as “all-in” pricing for bond transactions. Accordingly, unless otherwise agreed, the price of any bond transaction that WISE executes for a client may include what WISE determines to be a reasonable bid-ask spread and/or mark-up.
