Can I invest more than $1,000?
Absolutely. The goal is to build wealth for everyone, regardless of where they are on their journey. We recognize that some people may be further along on their journey, or may simply have the means to do more, and if that applies to you, we certainly welcome the opportunity to help you build as much wealth as possible..
What type of account(s) will my money be invested in?
This will be contingent upon your goal for the money and the time horizon associated with that goal. Whether it’s for a future major purchase, retirement or general wealth building, we have account options that will work best for your goals.
Can you help me with other accounts that I may have such as my current 401(k) or one from a previous employer?
Yes. If you have an account that you would like our firm to manage such as a 401(k) from a previous employer, we can help you roll that over into a new account with our firm. Also, once you have an account with us, you can even add accounts that we don’t manage, such as your current 401(k) so that you can have an organized view of all your accounts to better track and manage your overall wealth.
What if I need to access the money I invested?
You will have full access to your account(s) 24/7. Should you decide you ever want to make additional deposits or withdrawals, you can do that directly from your mobile app or online. You may want to consult with your advisor or a tax professional to understand if any tax implications or withdrawal penalties apply based on the nature of your account type.
How do I open up an account?
Opening up an account is simple, upon deciding to join this campaign, you will receive a video lesson that walks you through step by step how to open up your account in just a few minutes.
