Core Investment Policy Statement
Anglia Advisors's core investment policy is the unwavering belief that our clients are best served, wherever possible, by employing thoughtfully and professionally allocated, broadly diversified, tax-optimized, low-cost, risk-appropriate investments in the form of exchange-traded funds (ETFs).
Not in any individual stocks/bonds, expensive actively managed mutual funds, annuities, insurance-based investment products, private equity, limited partnerships or complex structured products.
With the exception of infrequent tactical shifts in asset allocation in response to significant changes in market conditions or a client’s circumstances, tax-optimization strategies, and a robust rebalancing policy, Anglia Advisors believes that frequent trading within the account, numerous buys and sells, individual stock-picking and continuous attempts at market timing are detrimental to clients from the perspective of long term rate of return, transparency, costs incurred, and tax efficiency.
Each account is allocated after thoughtful consideration of its particular time horizon, specific goals, likelihood of premature withdrawal, the client’s risk tolerance/capacity, and other individualized circumstances as well as in full collaborative consultation with, and approval of, the client.
Anglia Advisors never accepts commissions, fees, or payments from any third parties in order to promote, refer, recommend, or sell any proprietary investments, products, insurance policies or strategies to our clients. Anglia Advisors does not sell any form of insurance or annuities, nor does the firm offer paid legal or tax advice.
Nor do we pay/accept referral fees to/from other professionals in respect of services for our clients. Our compensation comes exclusively from a flat-fee and monthly retainer based model in addition to fees applied to optional investment management services.

System Account Aggregation
Certain account aggregation systems offered by Anglia Advisors to some of its clients may allow them to view their account statements from various financial institutions, such as banks or credit unions and investment account custodians, in one place.
They simply gather existing data from a variety of sources and will let clients see it via a convenient portal. Anglia Advisors is not affiliated with any account aggregator and does not receive any type of fee or other consideration from the provider if you sign up for account aggregation, although a fee may be optionally assessed to the client by Anglia Advisors for access to the portal.
Before they decide whether to use an account aggregator, anyone should understand what it does and does not do. An account aggregator assembles data from various sources, and the information it gathers may include some data about historical account performance, but an account aggregator is not an investment performance reporting tool. The data it passes on to you may not have been verified by the account aggregator or by Anglia Advisors.
Clients should always review their official account statements, and not consider any consolidated report such as that available through an account aggregator or any similar service to be a substitute for your actual account statement.
Client online credentials for linked accounts are never stored by or available to Anglia Advisors.
Anglia Advisors has no control over an account aggregator’s security practices or its current or future privacy policies. Our firm will assume no responsibility for any damages resulting from client use of an aggregation service.
