Effective: October 20, 2022 (Reviewed March 31, 2023)
Conversation Starter: Given my financial situation, should I choose an investment advisory service? Why or why not?
There is an investment advisory service for every financial situation. Before deciding whether to use an investment advisory service, you should consider your financial goals and your investment advisory service needs and choose an investment advisor that can help you achieve your goals.
Conversation Starter: How will you choose investments to recommend to me?
Greenlight Advisors is charged with recommending the best investments for our customers. To choose the best recommendation, Greenlight Advisors starts by assessing a customer's investment profile. During the account setup phase, you will be asked to answer initial screening questions regarding your financial situation, level of financial sophistication, investment experience, and financial goals, which Greenlight Advisors uses to create an investment profile. Based on the investment profile, you will be provided with an ETF recommendation that has been chosen by Greenlight Advisors. The ETFs represent various investment profiles that match the investment tiers recommended by Greenlight Advisors.
Conversation Starter: What is your relevant experience, including your licenses, education and other qualifications? What do these qualifications mean?
Greenlight Advisors is made up of highly skilled individuals with an average of 8+ years of experience in financial services.
Conversation Starter: Help me understand how these fees and costs might affect my investments. If I give you $10,000 to invest, how much will go to fees and costs, and how much will be invested for me?
Greenlight Advisors charges a $2.99 monthly investment advisory fee which is included in your monthly Greenlight subscription fee. The monthly investment advisory fee is only charged to the primary account holder and not the individual brokerage accounts. Therefore, $35.88 will be paid in annual investment advisory fees; leaving up to $9,964.12 available for you to invest in ETFs and individual company stocks.
You may also indirectly pay management fees or other expenses to the purchased ETF. Additional information about theses and other fees that may apply to you and your account can be found in our Wrap Fee Brochure.
Conversation Starter: How might your conflicts of interest affect me, and how will you address them?
Managing conflicts of interest is an integral part of Greenlight's compliance program. We believe that no organization can totally eliminate conflicts that exist explicitly or implicitly. Greenlight Advisors evaluates its business activities and the actual and potential conflicts that may emerge from its activities. This process is completed on an ongoing basis and can change as our products and services change. Additional information about conflicts of interest between Greenlight Advisors and its clients is available in our Policy Center.
Conversation Starter: As a financial professional, do you have any disciplinary history? For what type of conduct?
No. Greenlight Advisors and its management professionals do not have a legal or disciplinary history to disclose. Additional information can be found in our Wrap Fee Brochure.
