Stifel Solutions Program

Discretionary Portfolio Management

Our team manages assets on a discretionary basis using a pre-screened investment approach.  This enables us to quickly react to market conditions when implementing our clients' investment strategies.  The result is a highly customized investment plan, with strategies tailored to our clients' specific needs and objectives.  We also have extensive experience in analyzing and selecting other managers to help find and select best-in-class additions.

We review Solutions portfolios on a continual basis and investment options at least quarterly.  If market situations require a more tactical approach, we will conduct monthly reviews.

We aim to build a relationship with you for the long term by demonstrating our drive and objectivity and providing service that's personal and responsive.

Since all investment decisions in a Solutions account are made by the Financial Advisor(s) on the client's behalf without having to receive prior approval, it is paramount that Solutions clients have detailed knowledge of their Financial Advisors' individual investment philosophy and decision-making process before entrusting him or her with their portfolio.  There is no guarantee that the objectives of the portfolio strategy will be achieved.

The Stifel Solutions Program has an annual asset-based fee (a “wrap fee”), charged quarterly, that covers the portfolio's management services provided as well as certain other costs, including trade execution, custody, and performance reporting.  There may be other costs associated with the Stifel Solutions Program, including but not limited to: underlying expenses of investment companies (such as ETFs) in which the strategy may invest, exchange fees, transfer fees, interest expense, and trade surcharges, which are not covered by the wrap fee but are borne directly by the client. Ask your Financial Advisor for a copy of Stifel's Form ADV Part 2A – Wrap Disclosure Brochure (the “Disclosure Brochure”), which further outline the fees, services, exclusions, and disclosures associated with this program. You should consider all terms and conditions before deciding whether the Solutions Program and this strategy are appropriate for your needs.
