Getting To Know You
Investor Solutions understands that not all investors and investment managers are a good fit for each other. We want all our clients to feel comfortable with our company, advisors, services and investment philosophy prior to engaging us. We will first want to meet or teleconference with the Board leadership and Executive Director/CEO to discuss time horizons and the overall goals and objectives of the organization and how we can help achieve them.
The Data Gathering stage involves getting to know the details of your current portfolio, assets, retirement dates, children’s education, health and more. We do this with a detailed Confidential Questionnaire for the purpose of developing an investment strategy that is tailored to your organization. Documents that we will want to see include recent investment portfolio statements, Articles of Incorporation, Cash Flow Projections and Investment Guidelines and/or Restrictions.
Analysis & Proposal Stage
Once we receive and review your Confidential Questionnaire with all you financial data we will analyze your situation taking into account the current financial state, risk tolerance and financial concerns. We will then present to the Board (or designated individuals) with an overall strategy that we believe will help achieve the organizational goals and long-term objectives.
In the Strategy Implementation we will develop a cost effective strategy to implement the new investment plan and will now send you a proposed investment policy statement, a contract and the necessary account applications and transfer forms.
Account Set Up
All of the organization’s accounts will be open at the custodian of choice under the name of the organization. Investor Solutions does not custody client assets. We are only assigned to your account as the advisor with limited powers to trade and make changes with prior approval.
We will prepare all paperwork necessary to open the accounts. We will keep your organization informed of the process and confirmations of any trades and/or changes will be provided directly from the custodian.
Depending on the assets held in the current account(s) we will liquidate some or all positions and then move them to the new account(s).
All account transfers will be done taking into consideration expenses and trading costs. The organization will receive confirmations of all account activity including any trades and transfers as they occur.
We will track the transfer(s) to ensure accuracy and will begin implementing the new investment plan by purchasing the new funds. The organization’s account will be continuously monitored from this point forward to ensure that it remains on target with the desired asset allocation.
