This is an investment program provided by S.E.E.D. where the participating client’s investment accounts are not discretionarily managed by S.E.E.D.
In this program, S.E.E.D. provides a review of a number of investment options including the client’s current holdings. S.E.E.D. provides recommended investments and portfolios that match the client’s risk profile. Clients receive communication and advice regarding their investments and recommended updates throughout the year.
Since S.E.E.D. is not contracted for the ongoing investment management, it is the client’s responsibility to follow the investment advice and to make the adjustments as recommended.
We believe that financial planning is a critical component of investment decision making and that your investments should be professionally managed by a fiduciary based on your personal financial needs and goals. As a fiduciary, S.E.E.D. offers a professional investment management program to financial planning clients for an additional charge.
