Establishing an Account
Once you have made the decision to retain Silver Spring Capital, we will help you set up your account. The four simple steps needed to complete this process are as follows:
- Sign an agreement which allows Silver Spring Capital to direct transactions on your behalf.
- With our assistance, complete a risk tolerance and investment objectives survey which will enable us to appropriate allocate your investment assets.
- Establish a custodial relationship (with either a bank or brokerage firm) to take physical possession of your assets in an account bearing your name (Silver Spring Capital will at no time have custody of your assets). If you would like, we can prepare these forms for your signature and handle all of the paperwork from there.
- Sign a letter directed to the custodian authorizing them to accept our trading instructions (again, we will not have custody of your assets, only the authority to place trades on your behalf).
Investment Advisory Fees
We charge a fee based on the market value of assets under our management, according to the following schedule:
1.00% on the first $500,000 of market value
0.75% on the next $1,500,000 of market value
0.50% on amounts over $2,000,000 of market value
Silver Spring Capital's responsibility is to negotiate brokerage commissions for our clients. We seek to keep brokerage commissions at a minimum while at the same time achieving an acceptable level of service.
