  1. U.S. Bancorp Investments can assist clients with IRA Rollovers. However, keep in mind that a rollover of qualified plan assets into an IRA is not your only option. Before deciding whether to keep assets in your current employer’s plan, to roll assets to a new employer’s plan, to take a cash distribution, or to roll assets into an IRA, clients should be sure to consider potential benefits and limitations of all options. These include total fees and expenses, range of investment options available, penalty-free withdrawals, availability of services, protection from creditors, RMD planning and taxation of employer stock. Discuss rollover options with your tax advisor for tax considerations.

  2. Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) are subject to risks similar to those of stocks, such as market risk. Investing in ETFs may bear indirect fees and expenses charged by ETFs in addition to its direct fees and expenses, as well as indirectly bearing the principal risks of those ETFs. ETFs may trade at a discount to their net asset value and are subject to the market fluctuations of their underlying investments.

  3. Annual advisory fee is 0.24% of invested assets, billed quarterly with a minimum investment of $1,000. Your annual advisory fee doesn’t include ETF fees and expenses which are reflected in the daily pricing of the fund, or other account level fees as described in our Automated Investor Wrap Fee Program Brochure.
