wrap fee
 n.— «It allows broker-dealers to charge fees based on assets under management (sometimes referred to as a “wrap fee”) rather than product commissions—just as the registered investment advisers do. If the client’s portfolio goes up in value, so does the broker’s compensation. Brokers no longer have to push products to earn a reasonable return from their clients.» —“The Minnesota Investor: A ruling for the clients” by Gene Walden Star Tribune (Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota) July 7, 2007.
