EQUITY, FIXED INCOME AND OPTIONS COMMISSION SCHEDULES

The maximum equity commission schedule is not meant to be normal and permissible for every transaction. FINRA regulations require commissions to be fair, based on relevant circumstances.

* The existing broker/dealer $50 minimum commission policy still applies.

Equity Commission Schedule

Principal Dollar Amount Maximum Commission Percentage*
Up to $5,000.00 4.50%
$5,000.01 - $10,000.00 4.25%
$10,000.01 - $25,000.00 4.00%
$25,000.01 - $50,000.00 3.50%

$100,000.01 - $250,000.00 2.25%
$250,000.01 and above 2.00%

Options Commission Schedule

The schedule will have a default/maximum allowable commission of the greater than Percentage of Principal
(Investment Amount) or Per Contract schedule with a $50 minimum; the $50 minimum may be reduced at the investment professional’s discretion if the trade is very small. Pershing will not allow a commission to cause an overall debit to the accountholder on a trade, regardless of ticket charges (with the exception of the paper confirmation charges).

Percentage of Principal is:

Percentage of Principal

Principal Dollar Amount Percentage
Less than $10,000 4%
$10,000 - $24,999.99 3.5%
$25,000 - $49,999.99 2.5%
$50,000 – $99,999.99 2%
$100,000 and greater 1.5%

The Per Contract schedule is:

$25 plus $X.XX per contract

Contract price less than $4 Contract price $4 and above
+ $1.50 per contract + $2.00 per contract

Maximum Markup Guidelines for Secondary Fixed Income Market

The guidelines below are not meant to be normal and permissible for every transaction. Some considerations such as the bond’s rating, market availability and size of trade could affect percentage. Smaller transactions may warrant a higher percentage in order to cover transaction charges.

The guidelines apply to individual purchases and proceeds transactions. A proceeds transaction is when the customer sells a security and uses the proceeds to purchase another security at, or about, the same time. In a proceeds transaction the aggregate commission and/or markup/markdown may not exceed the maximum allowable for a single transaction. The maximum markdown on the sell-side of a proceeds transaction will be the lesser of the below guidelines or 0.75%.

Maximum Markup Guidelines for Secondary Fixed Income Market
