Putting Advisors in a Command & Control Position Over the Client Relationship

At Ashton Thomas, wealth advisors can delegate the investment management function to well vetted asset managers with proven track records through our TAMP (Turnkey Asset Management Platform).

With a program like this in place, advisors can focus their attention on addressing clients' needs and anticipating their concerns while maintaining ultimate authority over selecting the right asset managers and products for the portfolio. Our wealth advisors can offload part of the wealth management business to specialists, liberating time and other resources to focus on those aspects that the client truly values: personal attention, insight into unique situations, service and trust.

Our Platform comes in Six varieties.

Also known as a Mutual Fund Advisor Program, a mutual fund wrap account provides multiple mutual funds (selected from a large pool) based on asset allocation guidelines. The investment advisor designs a portfolio of funds and manages the funds as a single account for a single annual fee. That fee "wraps around" all of the client's mutual fund activity, providing transparency and simplicity, and is an alternative pricing option to paying an upfront commission or surrender charges.
An ETF wrap is a type of managed account where the client's investment portfolio is invested solely in exchange-traded funds. The selection and composition of each ETF class is based on the appropriate asset allocation model, and is periodically assessed to respond to market changes. As with most managed accounts, there is an asset-based fee charged for the account; the advisor pays transaction costs. ETF wraps often have lower expense ratios than mutual fund wraps and offer intraday trading, tax efficiency and other benefits.
An SMA is made up of a portfolio of individual securities managed by a single asset manager in a particular type of style 1 and offered to the investor by a sponsoring firm. A fee-based SMA program utilizes multiple SMAs. A single SMA can also form a single sleeve within a UMA structure. In general the SMA approach differs from a mutual fund because the investor directly owns the securities – individual bonds, for example -- instead of owning a share in a pool of securities.
A diversified group of the best managers relevant for our clients. Divide all hedge funds into two groups, Risk Mitigators and Return Enhancers and have strategies represented that eithers brings down the volatility of a traditional equity/fixed income portfolio or significantly enhances the return. The sleeve is customizable to invest in only 1 manager, a recommended multi-manager portfolio or a customized portfolio to complement client's individual portfolio's risk / return profile.
A UMA is a single fee-based account that houses numerous investment products within multiple separate account sleeves. Management between sleeves is determined by the overlay process to gain tax and trading efficiencies. This necessitates the wealth advisor managing the client relationship on a platform optimized for UMAs. Our UMA's are through Fidelity and TD Ameritrade.
A UMH is a UMA-like relationship taken to the next level by bringing together all aspects of a client household's wealth, not just the wealth of separate individuals. UMH platforms enable program sponsors to take a holistic approach to their investors' total portfolio and apply a range of solutions that manage the client's wealth in a manner similar to how a wealthy household tends to think about their personal wealth. Assets to be managed include qualified and non-qualified accounts, as well as alternative investments, real estate, collectibles, oil and gas properties, limited partnerships and managed futures accounts. A UMH has a single registration, and can aggregate across multiple custodians.

The platform empowers advisors to manage client outcomes and strengthen their practice.  The platform gives advisors an in-depth view of clients' aggregated investments, empowering holistic, personalized advice.
