Investment Cycle InfographicWe know that life is filled with many stages and major events, both expected and unpredictable. We believe that creating a well-defined financial plan around those investment goals important to you will allow you to better enjoy the journey, no matter what comes your way.

Investment Management Solutions (IMS) is a personalized investment platform created by 1st Global, a premier partner to professional CPA wealth management firms. Through IMS, you have access to multiple programs supported by well-defined investment beliefs, intellectual rigor, research and asset allocation models developed by 1st Global’s Investment Management Research Group and its accomplished strategic advisors. IMS incorporates four main steps to help you discover your long-term investment goals and keep you on track to meet them.

Step 1: Develop Your Investor Profile

IMS is a disciplined approach to investing, designed with you in mind. It’s a personalized portfolio built around your financial goals, time horizon and tolerance for volatility. The program begins with your financial advisor leading an in-depth discussion on your financial needs, wants, dreams and worries to develop your investor profile that will help ensure your assets are allocated appropriately. IMS delivers a customized investment policy statement that outlines your plan and commemorates your defined objectives, actions and responsibilities.1

Step 2: Identify an Asset Allocation Model

Once your profile has been defined and your risk tolerance has been determined, you and your financial advisor can select which asset allocation model best fits your investor profile.2

Investing in fixed-income securities involves credit and interest rate risk. When interest rates rise, bond prices generally fall.

The equity securities of small companies may not be traded as often as equity securities of large companies, so they may be difficult or impossible to sell.

International investing presents certain risks not associated with investing solely in the United States, such as currency, custodial, political and transparency risk.

Investing in emerging markets involves greater risk than investing in more established markets due to exchange rate changes, political and economic upheaval, and low market liquidity.

Investing in commodities may involve greater volatility and is not suitable for all investors.

Investing in a non-diversified fund that concentrates holdings into fewer securities or industries involves greater risk than investing in a more diversified fund. Neither asset allocation nor diversification assures a profit or protects against a loss in declining markets.

No investment strategy can guarantee success. It is possible to lose some or all of your investment.
