Firm Disclosures


Performance:

Our model portfolios have been developed based on historical performance of certain asset classes and are constructed of mutual funds representing those asset classes.  These model portfolios were designed and constructed based on modern portfolio theory (MPT) and a multifactor model.  The result of the application of the model is that so-called “small cap” stocks, "value" stocks (stocks of firms with a high book-to-market ratio) and the stocks of firms with greater profitability are emphasized in the portfolio and provide a greater expected return than the overall market over time. However, these asset classes – particularly, small cap and value stocks – provide greater expected return because they are riskier asset classes. Consequently, the additional risk of these two asset classes should be mitigated or diversified as much as possible, using other non-correlating asset classes. 

Please note, there can be no assurance that a client would have achieved similar rates of return over the same time frame.  In addition, since the time period is historical, there can be no assurance that future results achieved by clients will in any way resemble those presented for the model portfolios.  Although we have made every attempt to present this data fairly, hypothetical performance is still potentially misleading.  Hypothetical data does not represent actual performance and should not be interpreted as an indication of actual performance.

Item 4 – Advisory Business

We specialize in the following types of services:  asset management, financial planning, and consulting.  Our assets under management are $26,523,320 as of 12/31/2014.

A. Description of our advisory firm, including how long we have been in business and our principal owner(s).

We are dedicated to providing individuals and other types of clients with a wide array of investment advisory services.  Our firm is an LLC, formed in the State of California.

Our firm has been in business as an investment adviser since 2010 and is owned as follows: 

Jeremy A. Gonzalez – One-hundred-percent (100%) Owner

 

B. Description of the types of advisory services we offer:

(i) Asset Management:

We emphasize continuous and regular account supervision.  As part of our asset management service, we generally create a portfolio, consisting of individual stocks or bonds, exchange traded funds (“ETFs”), options, mutual funds and other public and private securities or investments.  The client’s individual investment strategy is tailored to their specific needs and may include some or all of the previously mentioned securities.  Each portfolio will be initially designed to meet a particular investment goal, which we determine to be suitable to the client’s circumstances.  Each client has the opportunity to place reasonable restrictions on the types of investments to be held in the portfolio. Once the appropriate portfolio has been determined, we review the portfolio at least quarterly and if necessary, rebalance the portfolio based upon the client’s individual needs, stated goals and objectives.

(ii) 401K Planning:

We provide 401(k) planning services. 401(k) Planning consists of advice on active allocation of securities within Client’s 401(k) account.  Advice may include allocation strategies, available fund research, and available fund review, 401(k) plan outlines, and instruction. If a client elects to follow any recommendations received from us or our associated persons, the client is responsible for implementation.  We and our associated persons will not implement transactions or act as custodian for client accounts when providing these services.

(iii) Financial Planning and Consulting

We provide a variety of financial planning and consulting services to individuals, families and other clients regarding the management of their financial resources based upon an analysis of client’s current situation, goals, and objectives. Generally, such financial planning services will involve preparing a financial plan or rendering a financial consultation for clients based on the client’s financial goals and objectives.  This planning or consulting may encompass one or more of the following areas:  Investment Planning, Retirement Planning, Estate Planning, Charitable Planning, Education Planning, Corporate and Personal Tax Planning, Cost Segregation Study, Corporate Structure, Real Estate Analysis, Mortgage/Debt Analysis, Insurance Analysis, Lines of Credit Evaluation, Business and Personal Financial Planning. Financial Planning and Consulting: Our written financial plans or financial consultations rendered to clients usually include general recommendations for a course of activity or specific actions to be taken by the clients.  For example, recommendations may be made that the clients begin or revise investment programs, create or revise wills or trusts, obtain or revise insurance coverage, commence or alter retirement savings, or establish education or charitable giving programs.  It should also be noted that we refer clients to an accountant, attorney or other specialist, as necessary for non-advisory related services. For written financial planning engagements, we provide our clients with a written summary of their financial situation, observations, and recommendations.  For financial consulting engagements, we usually do not provide our clients with a written summary of our observations and recommendations, as the process is less formal than our planning service.  Plans or consultations are typically completed within six (6) months of the client signing a contract with us, assuming that all the information and documents we request from the client are provided to us promptly. Implementation of the recommendations will be at the discretion of the client.

C. Explanation of whether (and, if so, how) we tailor our advisory services to the individual needs of clients, whether clients may impose restrictions on investing in certain securities or types of securities. 

(i) Individual Tailoring of Advice to Clients:

All fees are subject to negotiation.

The specific manner in which fees are charged by Alpha Global Investments is established in a client’s written agreement with Alpha Global Investments.

Item 8 – Methods of Analysis, Investment Strategies and Risk of Loss

Alpha Global Investments’ methods of analysis include charting analysis, fundamental analysis, technical analysis, and cyclical analysis.  

Charting analysis - involves the use of patterns in performance charts.   Alpha Global Investments uses this charting technique to search for patterns used to help predict favorable conditions for buying and/or selling a security.

Fundamental analysis - involves the analysis of financial statements, the general financial health of companies, and/or the analysis of management or competitive advantages. 

Technical analysis - involves the analysis of past market data; primarily price and volume.

Cyclical analysis - involves the analysis of business cycles to find favorable conditions for buying and/or selling a security

Investing in securities involves a risk of loss that you, as a client, should be prepared to bear.

B. Material Risks Involved

Alpha Global Investments uses Long Term Trading, Short Term Trading, Short Sales, Margin Transactions, Options Writing (including covered options, uncovered options, or spreading strategies). Alpha Global Investments utilizes investment strategies that are designed to capture market rates of both return and risk.    Frequent trading, when done, can affect investment performance, particularly through increased brokerage and other transaction costs and taxes.   Short sales, margin transactions, and options writing generally hold greater risk and clients should be aware that there is a chance of material risk of loss using any of those strategies.

Investing in securities involves a risk of loss that you, as a client, should be prepared to bear.

C. Risks of Specific Securities Utilized

Alpha Global Investments utilizes a number of different securities, none of which include unusual risk. Naturally, certain investments carry risks specific to their asset class, such as political or currency risk from international or global investments, liquidity risk from real estate investments, inflation and interest rate risk from long bond investments, etc.

Investing in securities involves a risk of loss that you, as a client, should be prepared to bear.

 

Item 9 – Disciplinary Information

Registered investment advisers are required to disclose all material facts regarding any legal or disciplinary events that would be material to your evaluation of Alpha Global Investments or the integrity of Alpha Global Investments’ management.  Alpha Global Investments has no information applicable to this Item.

 

Item 10 – Other Financial Industry Activities and Affiliations

We have no other financial industry activities and affiliations to disclose.

 

Item 11 – Code of Ethics

Alpha Global Investments has adopted a Code of Ethics for all supervised persons of the firm describing its high standard of business conduct, and fiduciary duty to its clients. The Code of Ethics includes provisions relating to the confidentiality of client information, a prohibition on insider trading, a prohibition of rumor mongering, restrictions on the acceptance of significant gifts and the reporting of certain gifts and business entertainment items, and personal securities trading procedures, among other things. All supervised persons at Alpha Global Investments must acknowledge the terms of the Code of Ethics annually, or as amended.

Alpha Global Investments anticipates that, in appropriate circumstances, consistent with clients’ investment objectives, it will cause accounts over which Alpha Global Investments has management authority to effect, and will recommend to investment advisory clients or prospective clients, the purchase or sale of securities in which Alpha Global Investments its affiliates and/or clients, directly or indirectly, have a position of interest. Alpha Global Investments’ employees and persons associated with Alpha Global Investments are required to follow Alpha Global Investments’ Code of Ethics. Subject to satisfying this policy and applicable laws, officers, directors and employees of Alpha Global Investments and its affiliates may trade for their own accounts in securities which are recommended to and/or purchased for Alpha Global Investments’ clients. The Code of Ethics is designed to assure that the personal securities transactions, activities and interests of the employees of Alpha Global Investments will not interfere with (i) making decisions in the best interest of advisory clients and (ii) implementing such decisions while, at the same time, allowing employees to invest for their own accounts. Under the Code certain classes of securities have been designated as exempt transactions, based upon a determination that these would materially not interfere with the best interest of Alpha Global Investments’ clients. In addition, the Code requires pre-clearance of many transactions, and restricts trading in close proximity to client trading activity. Nonetheless, because the Code of Ethics in some circumstances would permit employees to invest in the same securities as clients, there is a possibility that employees might benefit from market activity by a client in a security held by an employee. Employee trading is continually monitored under the Code of Ethics, and to reasonably prevent conflicts of interest between Alpha Global Investments and its clients.

Certain affiliated accounts may trade in the same securities with client accounts on an aggregated basis when consistent with Alpha Global Investments' obligation of best execution. In such circumstances, the affiliated and client accounts will share commission costs equally and receive securities at a total average price. Alpha Global Investments will retain records of the trade order (specifying each participating account) and its allocation, which will be completed prior to the entry of the aggregated order. Completed orders will be allocated as specified in the initial trade order. Partially filled orders will be allocated on a pro rata basis. Any exceptions will be explained on the Order.

Alpha Global Investments’ clients or prospective clients may request a copy of the firm's Code of Ethics by contacting Jeremy Gonzalez.

It is Alpha Global Investments’ policy that the firm will not affect any principal or agency cross securities transactions for client accounts. Alpha Global Investments will also not cross trades between client accounts.  Principal transactions are generally defined as transactions where an adviser, acting as principal for its own account or the account of an affiliated broker-dealer, buys from or sells any security to any advisory client.  A principal transaction may also be deemed to have occurred if a security is crossed between an affiliated hedge fund and another client account.  An agency cross transaction is defined as a transaction where a person acts as an investment adviser in relation to a transaction in which the investment adviser, or any person controlled by or under common control with the investment adviser, acts as broker for both the advisory client and for another person on the other side of the transaction.  Agency cross transactions may arise where an adviser is dually registered as a broker-dealer or has an affiliated broker-dealer.

 

Item 12 – Brokerage Practices 

Alpha Global Investments has no soft dollar arrangements. 

A. Factors Used to Select Custodians and/or Broker/Dealers

The Custodian was chosen based on their relatively low transaction fees and access to 

mutual funds and ETFs.  Alpha Global Investments will never charge a premium or commission on transactions, beyond the actual cost imposed by Custodian..

1. Research and Other Soft-Dollar Benefits

Alpha Global Investments receives no research, product, or service other than execution from a broker dealer or third-party in connection with client securities transactions (“soft dollar benefits”).

2. Brokerage for Client Referrals 

Alpha Global Investments receives no referrals from a broker-dealer or third party in exchange for using that broker-dealer or third party. However other registered representatives of a broker-dealer routinely refer Alpha Global Investments clients, in the due course of specialization.

3. Clients Directing Which Broker/Dealer/Custodian to Use 

Alpha Global Investments allows  clients to direct brokerage.  Alpha Global Investments may be unable to achieve most favorable execution of client transactions if clients choose to direct brokerage. This may cost clients money because without the ability to direct brokerage Alpha Global Investments may not be able to aggregate orders to reduce transactions costs resulting in higher brokerage commissions and less favorable prices.

B. Aggregating (Block) Trading for Multiple Client Accounts

Alpha Global Investments maintains the ability to block trades purchases across accounts but will rarely do so.   While block trading may benefit clients buy purchasing larger blocks in groups, we do not feel that the clients are at a disadvantage due to the best execution practices of our custodian.

 

Item 13 – Review of Accounts 

Client accounts are reviewed upon request or at least quarterly only by their assigned registered advisor. Each registered assigned advisor is instructed to review clients’ accounts with regards to their investment policies and risk tolerance levels.   

All financial planning accounts are reviewed upon financial plan creation and plan delivery by the appropriate assigned registered advisor. There is only one level of review and that is the total review conducted to create the financial plan.

Reviews may be triggered by material market, economic or political events, or by changes in client's financial situations. Each client will receive a written report by request either annually, quarterly or monthly, detailing the clients account performance, which may come from the custodian.

 

Item 14 – Client Referrals and Other Compensation

A. If someone who is not a client provides an economic benefit to our firm for providing investment advice or other advisory services to our clients, we must generally describe the arrangement. For purposes of this Item, economic benefits include any sales awards or other prizes. 

We have no additional arrangements to disclose.

B. If our firm or a related person directly or indirectly compensates any person who is not our employee for client referrals, we are required to describe the arrangement and the compensation.

We may pay referral fees (non-commission based) to independent solicitors (non-registered representatives) for the referral of their clients to our firm in accordance with relevant state statutes and rules.  Such referral fee represents a share of our investment advisory fee charged to our clients.  This arrangement will not result in higher costs to you. In this regard, we maintain Solicitors Agreements in compliance with relevant state statutes and rules and applicable state and federal laws.   All clients referred by Solicitors to our firm will be given full written disclosure describing the terms and fee arrangements between our firm and Solicitor(s).  In cases where state law requires licensure of solicitors, we ensure that no solicitation fees are paid unless the solicitor is registered as an investment adviser representative of our firm. If we are paying solicitation fees to another registered investment adviser, the licensure of individuals is the other firm’s responsibility

 

Item 15 – Custody

Clients should receive at least quarterly statements from the broker dealer, bank or other qualified custodian that holds and maintains client’s investment assets.  Alpha Global Investments urges you to carefully review such statements and compare such official custodial records to the account statements that we may provide to you.  Our statements may vary from custodial statements based on accounting procedures, reporting dates, or valuation methodologies of certain securities.  

 

Item 16 – Investment Discretion

Alpha Global Investments usually receives discretionary authority from the client at the outset of an advisory relationship to select the identity and amount of securities to be bought of sold. In all cases, however, such discretion is to be exercised in a manner consistent with the stated investment objectives for the particular client account.

When selecting securities and determining amounts, Alpha Global Investments observes the investment policies, limitations and a restriction of the clients for which it advises. For registered investment companies, Alpha Global Investments’ authority to trade securities may also be limited by certain federal securities and tax laws that require diversification of investments and favor the holding of investments once made.

Investment guidelines and restrictions must be provided to Alpha Global Investments in writing.

 

Item 17 – Voting Client Securities

As a matter of firm policy and practice, Alpha Global Investments does not have any authority to and does not vote proxies on behalf of advisory clients. Clients retain the responsibility for receiving and voting proxies for any and all securities maintained in client portfolios. Alpha Global Investments may provide advice to clients regarding the clients’ voting of proxies.

 

Item 18 – Financial Information

Registered investment advisers are required in this Item to provide you with certain financial information or disclosures about Alpha Global Investments’ financial condition.  Alpha Global Investments has no financial commitment that impairs its ability to meet contractual and fiduciary commitments to clients, and has not been the subject of a bankruptcy proceeding.

 

Item 19 – Requirements for State-Registered Advisers
