Hello, my friends call me Derek or DJ.  Thank you for taking the time to learn more about our team and what we do.  I am the Founder and CEO of Intrepid Wealth Partners, one of four companies I have been involved with.

I am married to my lovely wife Amanda.  We have a 6 year old son (going on 15!) Neary, and an old rescue dog, Murphy, who is a mix between a German Sheppard, Husky, and something else!  We love to travel, meet new people, and try new and different types of food.

I am an American and Irish dual national, having been born in Dublin, Ireland.  My son also enjoys the benefits of dual citizenship, however my wife was born and raised in Minnesota.   Our travels throughout the world have taught us that most people are genuinely good and want what is best for themselves, their families, and others.  We have had the privilege of meeting some great people along the way, who have helped expand our horizons, both professionally and personally.

    Choosing an Advisor, Mutual Funds
Do financial advisors get paid by mutual funds?
88% of people found this answer helpful


In a nutshell, yes they do!  They are paid typically by two factors. 1) They are paid a portion of the sales charge (load) you paid when you invested.  For example, if you invested $100,000 into a loaded mutual fund with an upfront sales charge of 3% ($3,000), the adviser selling it to you would typically get a portion of this. 2) In addition to this they are paid a trail, which is a portion of the operating expenses the fund has each year, commonly referred to as Expense Ratio or 12b1 fees.

If you are investing in a mutual fund make sure to ask what the expenses are and how much of them are going to the advisor.

Please consider me a resource if you should have any additional questions.

Thank you,

Derek Notman
