Business model

The Mutual Fund Store office, Livonia, Michigan

The Mutual Fund Store provides investment advice to clients with as little as $50,000 using actively managed no-load and load-waived mutual funds. The Mutual Fund Store is a fee-based investment advisory service, meaning clients pay a quarterly fee based on their account value for investment advice and actively managed portfolios. Because investment advisors are fee-based, they accept no incentives, commissions or benefits from fund companies, therefore, maintaining their independence.[4]The company's investment advisors profile a client’s investment risk and goals, then allocate assets into a variety of mutual funds across several asset classes to provide diversification.[5] Asset allocation recommendations are provided by The Mutual Fund Research Center, using the Nobel Prize-winning concepts of Modern Portfolio Theory, which found that through intelligent diversification one can reduce the investment risks contained in a single or limited investment, and gains in one investment may help offset losses in another.
