Our Promise

Quality Advice. True independence has many benefits for you. Providus is an independent firm that accepts no third-party payments, has no requirements to sell any in-house or preferred products or to advance some large corporate agenda. Providus serves clients only. Your interests are placed first and foremost.

A Unique Investment Management Process. We monitor various markets and their trends, increasing or reducing exposure as warranted. Undergoing this process can help you reduce the risk associated with investing while giving you the confidence to stay invested during uptrends.

A True Value. Obtaining high quality service at a reasonable cost is important to you. We are committed to providing an excellent value to you, our client. The unfortunate truth is that many investment product salespeople recommend products laden with inappropriately high fees. Often times, such fees are hidden and not fully disclosed. Providus’ pricing structure is transparent and a good value.  See below.

Our fees

Fees are charged to your account in arrears, on a quarterly basis. Fees are quoted as a percentage of the assets we manage for you. There are no lock-up periods, surrender charges, etc.

If your portfolio is:

$0-$249,999                                 1.50%

$250,000-$499,999                     1.25%

$500,000-$999,999                     1.00%

$1,000,000-$2,999,999                 .75%

$3,000,000+                                    .50%

For example, a portfolio with $1,000,000 is charged .75%, or $7,500 annually.

All costs are transparent, fully disclosed and easy to understand.  Providus accepts no compensation from third parties.  This drastically reduces the sometimes substantial conflicts of interest present in many advisory relationships.
