Third Party Investment Advisory Services

GCFA has entered into agreements with various third party investment advisers ("Third-Party Asset Managers") for the provision of certain investment advisory services to GCFA's clients. 

GCFA, through its Investment Adviser Representatives, provides services to its clients through assistance in the selection of a particular third-party Private Asset Manager.  Factors considered in the recommendation of a third-party Private Asset Manager include but may not be limited to:

  • Assessment of a particular third-party Private Asset Manager's Services;
  • The client's risk tolerance, goals, objectives and restrictions, as well as investment experience; and,
  • The size of client assets available for investment.

All securities transactions are decided upon and executed by the third-party Private Asset Manager. 

Depending upon the third-party Private Asset Manager selected, GCFA's Investment Advisory Representatives may include:

  1. Periodically reviewing reports provided to the client.
  2. Contacting the client to review the client's financial situation, objectives, and restrictions and communicate information to the third-party Private Asset Manager.
  3. Assist the client in understanding and evaluating the services provided by the third-party Private Asset Manager to determine if the Manager is realizing the client's objectives.
  4. To the extent the Manager is performing their function adequately, then the client will presumably re-hire the manager. Alternatively, if the Manager is not performing adequately or if the client's needs have changed, then GCFA's Investment Advisory Representatives will evaluate and recommend the services of other third-party Private Asset Managers who may more appropriately address the needs of the client.

Each third-party Private Asset Manager maintains its own separate execution, clearing, and custodial relationships.

Clients of this service should refer to the Firm Brochure or Wrap Fee Program Brochure (Part 2A of Form ADV) of the applicable third-party Private Asset Manager for additional information regarding the services and programs offered in this platform.
