The PortfolioShop Philosophy
We have no gimmicks or hidden fees. We are transparent about what our economic model is and what the total costs will be, whether borne by the end user or their provider.
Our platform integrates with all major prime brokerages and custodians, providing a seamless flow of order information throughout the investment process, regardless of provider.
We are determined to achieve excellence in everything we undertake, and nowhere is that more apparent than with our client service organization. We go the extra mile to ensure our clients are satisfied. Always.
