Soft dollar arrangements

What are soft dollar arrangements? I came across this term in reading 2 Q27 of ethics in CFAI. Thanks.

Hello tsttse, I also had some confusion of it and posted it in the thread following. I still have some questions need to be make clearer. I am waiting for more discussion about it even it is less important part of CFA material.,699273,699273#msg-699273

Cool thanks. THat thread makes sense. I guess all we need to know is that it is the brokerage fee that gets given back to client. So this is literally client’s asset and not the asset managers.
