What are the steps to become a client?

Our process is simple…

  1. To get started, simply click on the ‘Let’s Begin’ tab located above and securely submit the short form. 
  2. After submitting the form, an email will be sent to you containing a link to our Risk Profile Questionnaire, which consists of only six questions.
  3. Your Risk Score will be determined based on your questionnaire responses, and we will reach out to you to explain the significance of the score and discuss the next steps.
  4. If it is determined that we are a good match, we will kindly request that you securely upload your latest IRA statement for our review. This will allow us to compare your Risk Score to the calculated score of your current investment portfolio. It’s an essential step to assess if you might be taking on excessive risk beyond your personal risk tolerance level.
  5. Based on your Risk Score and current portfolio, we will create an Investment Proposal tailored to your needs. Additionally, we will provide a suggested Model Portfolio that aligns better with your score. It’s important to note that there is absolutely no obligation to move forward. At the very least, you will have gained valuable information to make informed decisions.
  6. To proceed and become a client, we will guide you through the new account process, ensuring a smooth transition.

What model portfolios do you use?

As advisors with LPL Financial, we gain access to institutional money managers who build portfolios for large institutions or endowment funds. In many cases, individual investors can only access these strategists through million-dollar-plus investments. Through us, you get access to these strategists through a starting investment minimum of just $10,000 to $25,000 (based on the manager).

We use the Model Wealth Portfolio (MWP) platform at LPL Financial and gain access to managers you may recognize:
