Wrap Fee

Wrap Fee

A fee a money manager charges a client for all services the money manager offers. The wrap fee covers investment advice, portfolio management brokerage services and anything else to which the manager and client agree. The wrap fee is usually calculated as a percentage of the assets under management. Paying a set fee for all services rather than individual fees repeatedly can help streamline the management process for all involved.
