What is a Registered Investment Adviser?
Buena Vista is a registered investment advisory firm (RIA) with the state of Wisconsin. RIA's have a fiduciary duty to act in their client's best interest and their fees are independent of the solutions they recommend. in other words, their success is tied firmly to that of their clients.

How is Buena Vista Investment Management paid for the services it provides?
We are not stockbrokers and do not sell securities or securities products to generate revenue for our firm. We are a fee based registered investment advisory firm. This means that our clients pay us a percentage fee of your assets under our management for designing and implementing an investment strategy, as well as making ongoing investment decisions. Our fees for these services are based on the market value of investments on the last day of each quarter.

Why does Charles Schwab act as custodian for Buena Vista Investment Management?
All client funds are held in custody at Schwab & Company ("Charles Schwab"), a highly respected and well capitalized firm. We have placed our client funds with Schwab to ensure that the processing of all client transactions are handled in the most efficient manner. Schwab processes all dividend and interest payments and security transactions as a result of the direction of our portfolio management....to name a few.

What does it take to open account with Buena Vista Investment Management?
First and foremost, a good match between YOU and our Advisors. Life is too short to have it any other way! The process is rather simple to open an investment management account(s). Buena Vista has three documents that require a signature: an investment advisory agreement; a fee agreement; and an investment policy statement. We then process the paperwork to open your account(s) at Charles Schwab. The last step is to complete the transfer of investments into your new account(s) with Schwab.

What kind of information will I receive on my investments?
On a monthly basis you will receive custodian statements directly from Charles Schwab detailing all holdings and transactions that have occurred within your account. In addition, on a quarterly basis Buena Vista will provide you with detailed reports on your investments, including performance.

Do I have to approve every investment transaction that takes place in my accounts? 
Buena Vista normally requires sole discretion on its client accounts for purpose of investment management. This means that we make the day to day investment decisions and do not contact you prior to making changes in your portfolio. It is important to understand, prior to any investment decisions being made, we work together with our clients to complete a detailed Investment Policy Statement (IPS). The IPS details what types of investments and the portfolio strategy you have authorized. Buena Vista will manage your investment funds based on the strict conditions detailed in the Investment Policy Statement. We then will schedule semi-annual meetings to review the investments and recent activity in your portfolios.
