San Mateo, CA (PRWEB) November 20, 2012
Motif Investing, the company that pioneered idea-based stock investing, has launched a limited-availability new service allowing financial advisors to harness Motif’s theme-based investing platform for the benefit of their clients.
The new program now being piloted, Motif Advisor Services, empowers forward-thinking advisors to customize stock and ETF portfolios, known as motifs. Each motif includes up to 30 securities and is based on an investing idea or strategy. Advisors’ clients then can purchase multiple motifs in appropriate amounts designed to meet individual portfolio-allocation targets and goals.
“Since our launch targeted at self-directed investors, we have had tremendous response from the advisor community requesting this product for their clients. We are excited to initiate this pilot with some early adopters,” said Hardeep Walia, Motif’s co-founder and chief executive.
Motif Investing, a Silicon Valley start-up advised by some of the biggest names on Wall Street— former SEC Chairman Arthur Levitt and bank executive Sallie Krawcheck— officially launched its web site for individual investors in June. The site offers customers the ability to easily customize and invest in portfolios of exchange-listed securities linked by a common theme, including unique investment ideas such as electronic payments, utilities, and housing recovery. In August, Motif debuted a fixed-income product to provide a simple and economical way to enter the world of bonds by investing in a portfolio of ETFs. Customers can use intuitive tools to easily adjust for maturity dates, asset classes, and even tax implications.

Investing in securities involves risk, you should be aware of prior to making an investment decision.

ETFs have unique features that you should be aware of, which can include distribution of any gains, risks related to securities within the portfolio, and tax consequences. Fixed income investments are subject to various risks, including changes in interest rates, credit quality, corporate events, tax ramifications and other which factors investors should be aware of before making an investment decision.
