To start the process, you will first begin by completing the “Build Portfolio” setup. This will guide you in establishing your appropriate risk profile, time horizon and personalized investment goals. Answer a few important questions and we will design a portfolio that is aligned with the results.

Opening Your Account
Once you have decided on the portfolio design, you will then move to opening your account.
The process is rather simple and you will need about 15-20 minutes in order to complete the online application.
All of the information is right on the eNVESTOLOGY Client Site for your convenience.
Funding Your Account
As you are progressing through the process of opening your account, you will be able to easily arrange funding.
We have made this as easy as possible by providing the ability to transfer money via a bank account, or through the ACAT system if you are moving funds/positions in from an existing brokerage account.
If you should have any questions or concerns with the funding process, please Contact Us.
Minimum Account Requirements
We have created this program with an entry level that is very attainable for most investors.
The minimum account requirement is $10,000 for the Stage 1 Investor Portfolio and $100,000 for the Stage 2 Investor Portfolio.
Forms and Information
After you have completed the required account forms and management agreements for your portfolio, you will receive an email with copies of all the signed documents.
To ensure security of your personal information, you will receive all through a secure DocuSign envelope to protect your privacy.
Portfolio and Investments
The final step in the initial process is investing the portfolio. We take care of the heavy lifting by researching the positions and making sure that your portfolio is aligned with your Investment Policy Statement.
Over time, changes to the allocations will be made and your portfolio will be re-balanced automatically.
You will not need to make any of the trades or decisions once the account is set-up and funded – we take care of all of that for you.
Contributions and Withdrawals
Over time you may want to add or withdraw funds from your portfolio.
Simply send us an email and we will get you any forms that may be required.
