How do I know my money is safe with Leisure Capital? Does Leisure Capital custody my assets?
By its nature, investing is not free of risk. That said, we work with each client individually to assess your comfort with market risk and then invest your capital in a way that balances your personal risk tolerance with your financial goals. And because your assets are held at highly reputable custodians like Charles Schwab and TD Ameritrade, you can invest with confidence that your money is as safe as it can be.
Do you have a minimum account size?
Our clients typically have $500,000 or more in investable assets. Adhering to this minimum enables us to provide the extraordinary level of service that every one of our clients deserves and expects.
Can I access my accounts online?
As a Leisure Capital client, you will have the same online access to your accounts you do today through your existing custodian (Schwab, TD Ameritrade, etc.), as well as online access to the Leisure Capital Management Vault where you can view detailed performance reports and other important financial documents.
Is there a fee for an initial consultation?
No. It does not cost you anything to meet with our team in person to discuss your current financial situation and explore if Leisure Capital is the right fit for you. The initial consultation is completely free of charge.
Will I need to liquidate my entire portfolio to work with Leisure Capital?
No. If your accounts are currently held at TD Ameritrade or Charles Schwab, we can simply link to your accounts using a Limited Power of Attorney. If your assets are held at a custodian other than TD Ameritrade or Charles Schwab, they can be easily transferred in-kind to the new institution.
In either case, we will work closely with you to identify the most suitable investments for you (which may include maintaining your existing positions), as well as create a strategy to manage any potential capital gains liabilities. No changes to your investment strategy will be implemented without your complete understanding and agreement.
Where can I find more information about your firm?
Every investment firm is required to file a Form ADV to register with both the SEC and state securities authorities. You can view our most recent Form ADV here. Legal information about our firm can be found on BrokerCheck and on the SEC website.
Who makes the investment decisions at Leisure Capital Management?
All investment decisions are made by the Leisure Capital Investment Committee. Currently, our Committee includes six members, three of which hold the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) designation. The Committee meets weekly to discuss current markets, economics, strategies, asset allocation, and potential changes so that our portfolios remain current with the ever-changing financial landscape.
Leisure Capital is a fee-only fiduciary firm. What does this mean to me?
Working with a fee-only firm gives you the confidence that every recommendation and every decision is being made in your best interest—only. As a fee-only fiduciary firm, our only source of revenue is from our clients who are billed based on their assets under our management (AUM). We receive no commissions or other perks when investing your assets in a particular fund, stock, or ETF. As a fiduciary, we are legally bound to act ethically in our clients’ best interests, so every decision we make is based on one thing: you.
We’d love to answer any additional questions you have.
