Kennicott Capital is committed to communicating with clarity and consistency. Your questions are important, and we strive to respond to inquiries promptly and thoroughly.

Following are a few of our most commonly-asked questions, along with explanations of our practices and policies.

  • Where will my assets be held?

    Your assets will not be held by Kennicott Capital; Kennicott Capital does not have custody of any client assets. Your assets will be held in your own account with a “qualified custodian” such as Charles Schwab.

  • How will I be billed?

    Fees will be paid quarterly in arrears, and will be deducted from your account of choice at the beginning of every quarter.

  • What does fee-only mean?

    Fee-only means that we are compensated solely on the size of your account. We do not receive commissions. Our fiduciary responsibility is to put your interests first.

  • What is an Investment Policy Statement? Do I need one?

    An Investment Policy Statement is a written document, developed by both you and Kennicott Capital, detailing your investment goals and preferences. The Investment Policy Statement is specific to your objectives, risk tolerance, selected investment vehicles and restrictions, and asset allocation. At Kennicott Capital, we do not begin any management assignment without one.

  • Can I take part in investment decisions for my portfolio?

    Yes. Before we do anything with your portfolio, we will determine your needs, investment goals, risk tolerance, and preferences. Together, we will develop an investment policy statement that will determine how you would like your assets invested, including any restrictions.

  • How will you communicate with me?

    We will communicate with you throughout the year via face-to-face, telephone, and email. You will receive your quarterly investment performance report for each of your accounts by email. Our lines of communication are always open.
