Advisor Portfolio Services
Advisor Portfolio Services (APS) is NBC Securities’ fee-based asset management program for advisor representatives who directly manage client portfolios or hire a non-ProAM program third party manager. The advisor has the option of utilizing no-load/load waived mutual funds, ETF’s (Exchange Traded Funds) or individual securities as the underlying investments in the portfolio.
The first step in this process is identifying the client’s objectives and risk profile to develop an investment strategy which becomes the basis for selecting the appropriate allocation and tools to execute the investment plan. Once accomplished, the Financial Advisor will monitor the performance and provide ongoing counsel to clients.
Benefits under the APS program are further defined below:
Individualized Investment Strategy
Clients receive customized asset allocation recommendations according to their risk tolerance, time horizon, and investment objectives.
Broad Selection of Investment Tools
APS can provide clients access to Mutual Funds, Exchange Traded Funds, and individual securities to implement their investment strategy.
Consistent Two-Way Communications
Consultants will meet with clients to review APS accounts, evaluate progress towards stated objectives, and to make any revisions necessary. In addition to face-to-face meetings, clients will receive monthly statements reviewing account balances and activity along with detailed quarterly performance reports. The quarterly reports will include specific performance information, educational pieces, and market commentary written by some of our ProAM program’s managers.
