Our Services


Investment Management

Your investment portfolio is constructed and managed based upon your investment objectives, time horizon, and risk tolerance.  The principles of Modern Portfolio Theory are applied in the selection of asset classes and securities in which to invest.  Buckeye Financial Solutions, Inc. does not practice market timing, and a "buy and hold" strategy is used in order to save you money on transaction costs and taxes.  Our goal is to lower your total cost to invest, and deliver consistent, predictable returns.  Periodic rebalancing is performed to realign the portfolio with your investment plan.  You do not need a minimum investment net worth to become a client.

Your portfolio will consist of a combination of no-load mutual funds and exchange traded funds (ETF) which meet strict due diligence criteria.

Fees are calculated based upon a percentage of assets under management.  The fee schedule for on-going investment management is:

Assets Under Management
Annual Fee
From $0 to $500,000
   0.60%
From $500,001 to $1,000,000
   0.45%
From $1,000,001 to $2,000,000
   0.30%
From $2,000,001 and thereafter
   0.20%

Minimum annual fee is $1,500.
