What does Titan charge?
Pricing at Titan is simple:
- If you've deposited $10,000 or more into Titan (net of withdrawals), you'll be billed a flat 1% annual advisory fee on your account balance.
- If you've deposited less than $10,000 into Titan (net of withdrawals), you'll be billed a fixed $5 monthly fee instead of the annual advisory fee.
All fees are assessed on a monthly basis near the beginning of each month. The $10,000 net deposit threshold is calculated on a daily average basis over the prior month.
How are fees charged?
If you're on the 1% annual advisory fee, you'll have your fees assessed directly from a cash reserve held in your Titan account on a monthly basis.
- In other words, each month 0.0833% of the average daily market value of your portfolio (excluding cash) will be billed from your cash reserve. This represents a 1.00% fee on an annualized basis (0.0833% x 12 months).
- We typically hold less than ~0.5% of your total account balance in cash reserves, which allows us to assess fees in a more tax-efficient manner (vs. selling fractional shares of portfolio holdings, which could result in taxable events).
Clients on the fixed $5 monthly fee will have fees debited directly from their linked bank accounts.
- Please make sure your linked bank account holds sufficient cash to cover these transfers to avoid bounced/returned transfers.
- If your linked bank account holds insufficient funds or generates a bounced/returned ACH transfer, we reserve the right to bill your fixed $5 monthly fee and/or any returned transfer fees via a fractional sale from your Titan portfolio (or via debit of available cash held in your Titan account). See the Fee Schedule for ACH return fee details.
- For holders of multiple account types (i.e., Individual + IRA), account fees will be debited from the bank account linked to the account holder's earliest active Titan account.
How can I see which fee structure I'm under?
Simply check your transfer history on the Account tab in the app.
Note that the $10,000 net deposit threshold is evaluated as a sum across all Titan accounts you own. This means if you hold $6,000 in an Individual account and $4,000 in an IRA account, you would satisfy the $10,000 net deposit threshold.
In addition, note that the $10,000 net deposit threshold is evaluated on an average daily basis across each month. This means that if you have $5,000 in net deposits over the first half of a month and $10,000 in net deposits over the second half of that month, you would have $7,500 in net deposits for that month. Such an account would reach $10,000 in average net deposits the following month (assuming no deposits or withdrawals).
Can you provide some examples of how fees are charged?
Sure, please see below.
- A client who has $10,000 deposited throughout the entirety of June would have an average daily deposit value of $10,000. If the average daily market value of that client's account over June is $11,000, this client would be billed roughly $9.17 at the beginning of July (1% / 12 months x $11,000).
- A client who has $5,000 deposited through the entirety of June would have an average daily deposit value of $5,000. This client would be billed a fixed $5 monthly fee at the beginning of July.
- A client who has $5,000 deposited through the first half of June and $10,000 deposited over the second half of June would have an average daily deposit value of $7,500. This client would be billed a fixed $5 monthly fee at the beginning of July, and would be billed the percentage fee in August (assuming no withdrawals over the interim).
