Disclosure: Our commission rates are determined and set on an individual basis using the guidelines established above. We want every client to fully understand our commission schedule. Jersey Shore Investments will be able to calculate your current rate at any given time. In addition to these general guidelines, other factors such as the type, price and availability of the security in the marketplace, as well as the size of the transaction, may apply when determining commissions on transactions. The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), formerly known as the National Association of Securities Dealers (NASD), merely provides acceptable guidelines for equity transactions, stating that commissions should not exceed 5% of the principal transaction amount. Additional one-time account charges may apply. We encourage you to call if you have any questions regarding the commission schedule or fees you are charged.
