Kalos Management

About Kalos Management

As the RIA arm of Kalos Financial, Kalos Management provides all the products and services you need to conduct fee-based business for your clients. Whether you serve as the portfolio manager, use third-party money managers, and/or use fee-based alternative investments, Kalos Management has the expertise and focus on service that helps you deliver sophisticated solutions.

Services and Offerings

Kalos Management takes care of the billing, compliance, and performance reporting so you can spend your time focusing on your clients and developing those relationships.

Kalos’ expertise in alternative investments thrives on the RIA side through the use of fee-based alternatives and the flexibility of combining commission-based and fee-based assets in the same account.

Access to professional portfolio management services has grown significantly over the years. Recognizing that no single money manager can be all things to all investors, Kalos offers a diverse number of managers that offer their own unique proposition when it comes to managing client assets.
To help advisors adapt to industry changes (ex. FINRA Rule 15-02), Kalos Management offers the flexibility of being able to charge a management fee on alternative investments purchased at NAV. This includes REITs, BDCs and Interval Funds.

In some cases, advisors may be able to hold commission-based and fee-based products in the same account, which means less paperwork for clients and possible savings on custodian fees.
A variety of third party money managers are available through the Kalos UMA, which allows you to hold strategies from multiple managers with the convenience of a single account.

UMAs provide consolidated statements for your clients and also help to streamline performance reporting. With certain money managers, individual strategies are offered at a lower cost within the UMA.

Kalos UMAs are offered through Envestnet with assets custodied at TD Ameritrade or RBC.
Kalos recognizes that some advisors choose to manage their clients’ portfolios themselves. Through our advisor-managed program, you have the flexibility to choose the assets that best fit your fee-based clients’ needs. Availability of this program is subject to approval.

Advisors using Kalos’ managed money solutions receive access to state-of-the-art performance reporting platforms. These platforms help you run your business more efficiently and communicate account performance to your clients more accurately.
  • TD Ameritrade accounts—Black Diamond
  • National Financial Services (NFS) accounts—Tamarac
  • RBC (and any of the above custodians)—Circle Black
