Frequently Asked Questions

How do I establish an account with Allos Investment Advisors, LLC?

Start with the Allos Risk Assessment. When the risk assessment is completed, we will contact you to help you open an account with us.

Are there financial incentives for you to recommend certain financial products?

Absolutely not. We are paid a fee based upon the value of the assets in your account. Our fee structure is clear and transparent. All fees paid to Allos are reported as a line item on our performance reports.

Do you take custody of, or have access to my assets?

No. We use a custodian to hold your assets. You still maintain control of your assets. Only you retain the ability to withdraw any assets from your account. You will simply sign a Limited Power of Attorney on your account(s) to name us as the advisor. This provides us with the ability to interact with the custodian about your account(s), have trading authority and deduct our management fees.

Are my assets pooled with other investor funds?

No, all investors maintain their assets in individual accounts.

How often do you review my investments?

Accounts are reviewed on an ongoing basis so that we can make sure account transfers, contributions and distributions are handled correctly. Your account is managed alongside others with the same risk tolerance to make sure that the account(s) allocations, target percentages, and rebalancing is performed when necessary. Additionally, the investment committee oversees all account positions, looking for opportunities to make enhancements to the account(s) as needed.

Do you contact me before you make trades in my account?

As long as we are acting within the terms of the Investment Policy Statement, we do not need to contact you. This includes all re-balancing, buying additional shares of existing positions, buying new positions and selling positions. We have found that our clients prefer this arrangement.

Can I get money out of my account quickly in case of emergency?

Yes, your account is very liquid. If there is enough money in the money market to handle your request, we can usually transfer the money into your bank account within 24 hours. If we need to liquidate investments to meet your cash requirements, then the cash can be available in as little as 4-5 business days. We recommend that you maintain a separate emergency fund so you don’t have to prematurely liquidate long-term investments.

How often will I receive statements on my account?

You will receive monthly statements from the custodian showing your balances, positions and any activity in the account. Performance reports are available online with month-end account information. We will email you letting you know when new reports are available. Quarterly, we provide an overview, via email, of positions purchased and sold in addition to economic and/or market commentary. Periodically, you may also receive memos from us if we make a strategic change to your portfolio allocation.

Can I have duplicate statements sent to another family member, advisor, CPA, attorney or trusted party?

Yes. We can arrange for duplicate statements to be sent out automatically.

Can I see my account online?

Yes. Once your accounts have been set up, you can access them via our website.

Since I can view my account online, will I also be able to trade it myself?

No. When you hire us to manage your assets, we make all the trades in the account as we have agreed to do.

What if I want to close my account? Will I have to pay a penalty?

Our investment management contract is open-ended, meaning you may discontinue using our services at any time with a 30 day notice. You would not have to pay us a penalty, and any unearned fees would be refunded.

How do I pay you for your services?

Investment management fees are collected at the beginning of every calendar quarter. Our management fee is billed directly to the accounts so there is no need to write us a check every time.
