AISG has arrangements with investment providers and retirement plan service providers who pay us to attend or present at conferences and symposiums we host. Depending on the provider’s involvement at the conference we receive between $2,000 and $12,500 from each such provider.
AISG has arrangements with Direct Participation Programs sponsors (REIT's, Limited Partnerships, Oil and Gas Programs and Tennant-in-Common Offerings) that include commissions and due diligence/marketing allowances from the sponsor. Commissions are described in detail in the offering's Private Placement Memorandum and vary depending on the offering and range from 2.00% to 9.00%. Due diligence/marketing allowance typically range from 0.5% to 1.00%. In some cases a portion may be shared with the representative.
In addition, certain DPP sponsors may pay American Independent Securities Group to support our annual Compliance Meeting and Symposium. These sponsors have greater access to our representatives to provide educational and training opportunities. For example, sponsors may also host events for individual representatives and their clients such as seminars and client appreciation events. Not all sponsors participate at the same level and participation is voluntary.
