The program is an investment advisory program with continuous and regular supervision of investments by WS Wealth Managers Inc. using the advanced brokerage custodian platform provided by FOLIOfn Investments.

Combinations of stocks, exchange traded funds (ETF's), Closed End Funds (CEF's), as well as limited fixed income securities and mutual funds are combined into "model" FOLIO's designed to accomplish specific investment objectives. Subcriptions to certain combinations of FOLIO's and periodic modifications are designed to provide for superior risk management and an efficient and optimized form of Dynamic Asset Allocation custom tailored to each investor.

A "typical" portfolio in the program, analyzed using Morningstar Office software indicates a high degree of diversification with 1500 equity and 500 fixed income holdings. This level of diversification is possible, even in smaller accounts, in part because of the ability of the FOLIOfn platform to trade fractional shares.
