Investopedia explains 'Wrap Account'


The advantage of a wrap is that it protects you from overtrading. This is when your broker trades your account excessively to make more commission. Furthermore, because the broker gets a flat annual fee, then he or she only trades when it is advantageous to you. A traditional wrap typically requires an initial investment of at least $50,000 to $100,000.
