Client Account Fees and Charges

At Capitol Securities Management, part of our commitment to providing the professional guidance you need to meet your financial objectives is making it easy for you to understand what you may be charged for our services.

Certain fees may not apply or may be discounted based on the type of account you have and/or the amount of assets you hold in your Capitol Securities accounts. Other fees are only charged when the associated services are requested or when special processing is required. As a result, many fees listed below may not apply to your account.
