After checking the regulatory records of Lexion Capital Management, our system has identified the following question(s) to ask. Learn more.
Does Lexion Capital Management offer mutual funds that have 12b-1 fees?
12b-1 fees increase the total annual cost of owning a mutual fund with no guarantee of higher returns. Some firms receive these fees as payments, which creates an incentive to promote them.
Does Lexion Capital Management offer products that have performance-based fees, or does it accept performance-based fees? Will any of my assets be invested in those products?
When performance-based fees are charged, the financial advisor is paid for outperforming a benchmark, typically an index. While this may seem like an attractive compensation structure to ensure your advisor is making your money work for you, often, the managers of those products are incentivized to take inappropriate risks to beat their performance benchmark. For instance, research has shown that mutual funds that use incentive fees take on more risk than funds that do not, and tend to double down and increase their risk following a poor performance. This could be detrimental to a client during down markets.
Does Lexion Capital Management perform side-by-side management? How does Lexion Capital Management mitigate conflicts that arise from managing accounts with differing fee structures?
This typically occurs when firms manage mutual funds or hedge funds alongside smaller retail accounts. Side-by-side management can create an incentive for the advisor to favor the larger funds, potentially leading to unequal trading costs and unfavorable trade executions for their retail clients.
Which securities does Lexion Capital Management trade for itself that it will also be recommending to me?
Lexion Capital Management has marked in its disclosures that they trade recommended securities. While this often can be seen as “eating your own cooking,” there are several inherent conflicts that can arise. For example, front running is when a financial professional buys or sells securities ahead of their client. In short, any financial professional should disclose all positions they hold (or have sold short) that they will also be recommending to you.
Our system found no other conflict questions to ask. Checks take place monthly.
