Our advisor-managed platforms allow our investment advisors to be in control of the investment management process.

Wealth Advisor: Under this discretionary fee-based program, clients pay minimal transaction charges for an annual asset-based fee and receive quarterly performance reports.  Clients can hold stocks, bonds, and select institutional mutual funds in the account. The available custodians include Schwab Institutional, Fidelity Institutional Wealth Services and TD Ameritrade Institutional. Many advisors use this program to implement their model portfolios. Investment Advisors Corp. has a variety of tools and templates available to assist our advisors in implementing their strategies.

Advisor One: This non-discretionary program is designed for investors who desire investment advice from their advisor but want to retain final trading authority. The program fee includes asset management advice, 20 free trades per calendar year, $25 transaction charges to the clients per trade after 20 trades (with no ticket charges to the advisor) and quarterly performance reporting. Clients can hold stocks, bonds and select institutional mutual funds in the account.

Custom Choice: This mutual fund wrap program combines client-directed portfolio construction with an advisor's informed, personalized advice. The program includes more than 4,000 institutional-class, no-load funds and load-waived mutual funds. It features portfolio tracking with periodic performance reports.


Through our relationships with many third-party asset managers, our advisors are able to simplify their practice and improve efficiency by outsourcing many time-consuming aspects of their business. Our third-party asset management partners include Curian, Genworth, SEI Investments and many more.
