Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is an investment advisor?
An investment advisor is an investment professional who works for you to create a financial plan and investment portfolio that is best suited to meet your individual needs. Of course, not all investment advisors are created equal, so it’s important to choose an advisor whom you trust and who is committed to attaining your long-term investment objectives.
Q: Do I need an investment advisor?
Our experience is that while our clients can be successful on their own, they prefer the full-time focus of our professional management. Our clients see the value of having a seasoned professional there to guide them through their financial life – a dedicated professional to answer their questions, and look out for their best interests.
Q: What are the advantages of becoming a client of your firm?
At Northeast Money Management, we provide you with a customized investment plan based on your investment goals and objectives. We monitor your portfolio daily, monitoring your performance and looking for relevant opportunities. We are available to answer your calls from 8:30AM to 5:30PM, Monday through Friday.
Q: What is the minimum account size?
The minimum account size is $100,000. More important than satisfying minimum account size criteria, is the need to establish a trusted working relationship with you to help you meet your investment goals. We accomplish this by spending a great deal of time getting to know you and your needs.
Q: How does Northeast Money Management select mutual funds and allocate assets in my portfolio?
Each mutual fund we recommend has been thoroughly researched to ensure that it meets our strict selection criteria. Among the criteria is the quality of management, track record, and the cost of the fund. Once we have determined which mutual funds can potentially satisfy your investment objectives, we use our proprietary asset allocation models to create a custom portfolio suited to your individual needs.
Q: How will I know what’s happening in my account?
If you choose to custody your assets at Fidelity or Schwab, you can view your account through the Fidelity and Schwab websites at Fidelity.com and Schwab.com. You will also receive monthly statements and trade confirmations directly from your custodian.
