Alpha Solutions Investment Advisors is a Registered Investment Advisor (“RIA”), we are a Fee Only firm which means we do not solicit or accept commissions or other compensation for the purchase, holding or sale of securities for our clients’. This eliminates the possibility of a conflict of interest in selecting which investments/securities we determine are best for each of our individual clients. We custom design and structure diversified portfolios of primarily direct equities/stocks, with some exchange traded funds (ETFs) for each of our clients taking into account their individual risk tolerances and investment goals. We avoid recommending or incorporating any mutual funds as we believe most underperform the market because of the normal sales costs/loads, layered fees and tax disadvantages. We are active managers of all portfolios that we oversee, constantly monitoring the positions of securities we hold while relentlessly searching, analyzing and examining new or changing investment opportunities.
Our dedicated team and our solid commitment to clients are at the core of the success of our business and portfolio returns.
