Tallsalt is a “fee-only” investment advisor, and as an asset management firm we are concerned with the growth of your investment portfolio and the protection of your assets. We work directly for our clients and receive no compensation from any other source than the quarterly asset management fee we collect from each client and the annual performance fee, if applicable. Thus, we buy and sell securities on your behalf when we believe they will benefit the portfolio. A traditional stockbroker working for a broker/dealer or bank is typically a sales person who is compensated by generating commissions from the sale of investment securities and/or investment products.

Tallsalt establishes both long and short positions of equity securities (stocks) in its clientsí portfolios based on extensive in-house research of the company. We only invest in the stock of companies that are traded on North American exchanges, including foreign companies whose securities are listed on North American exchanges. Tallsalt does not establish positions for its clients in bonds, currencies, index futures, commodities or equity-based derivatives (put and call stock options).

Tallsalt manages portfolios of equity securities for its clients. As part of a larger portfolio allocation plan, investments in equity securities can provide enhanced returns to achieve your financial goals. Tallsaltís investment approach can be characterized as a conservative value-oriented philosophy. Please see the web page titled Approach to Investing for more details.

Our only compensation is derived from each client paying us a quarterly investment management fee and an annual performance fee. These fees are clearly defined in the client investment agreement. Any commissions or transaction fees incurred by the buying/selling of securities are the responsibility of the client and are typically deducted by the brokerage firm. By establishing portfolios at discount brokerages, Tallsalt ensures that commissions or transaction fees are as low as possible.

We believe strongly that communication is the key to a long-term, successful relationship with our clients. You will receive a monthly statement from your custodian and a quarterly portfolio review statement from Tallsalt detailing all transactions, securities held, along with performance data for your portfolio. You will meet with a principal of the firm on a periodic basis to discuss the performance of your portfolio and our outlook. Of course, you may contact Tallsaltís principals at any time if you have questions.

No. Tallsalt does not hold custody of client funds or securities, nor does Tallsalt have authorization to withdraw funds other than fees that are due under the client investment agreement.

Each custodian we work with has insurance to protect your assets in the event your custodian has financial problems or goes out of business. We only work with custodians who are financially sound with the assurance that they are well-positioned within the financial services industry. Furthermore, only you, the client, will have authority to withdraw funds from your investment account; Tallsalt will only be authorized to withdraw fees as they become due and payable.
