This program is designed for professionals who are not ready for the Life Planning Program, but still want financial support right now. We focus on 2-3 financial topics from this list to help you understand which actions to take next. In our 90-minute conversation, you’ll receive a deeper understanding of your financial situation and answers to your most pressing questions. You’ll walk away with a written plan that you can use as a blueprint to confidently make further progress on your own.
Here’s what you receive with the Jump Start Program plan:
Jump Start program can cover a number of topics, including financial questions, concerns, challenges, and opportunities. Here's some of what we can discuss and tackle together as we put you in a position to use money as a tool to live the life you want:
You might still have questions about what exactly to expect from a relationship with a financial planner. We've got you covered with a detailed look at the organized process we use to help you move from, "I wonder if I'm doing everything right with my money?" to "I'm doing exactly what I need with my money to create the life I want."
Ready for a full financial health checkup? Stop researching and start getting answers about your retirement, investments, debt, savings, insurance coverages, business planning, estate planning and employee benefits.
Comprehensive financial planning is something that everyone can benefit from. While you can spend hours researching some of this stuff on your own, you have a day job that keeps you busy. It’s much easier to consult a certified expert than to wade through mountains of news articles. We provide our clients peace of mind by providing a road map for moving your finances forward and we answer all your questions along the way.
Some additional benefits of working with an advisor are that we’ll find ways to help you: 1) Make more money by optimizing your investments, account types, and cash. 2) Save money by making sure you’re not overpaying for fees, insurance or debt. 3) Avoid making costly behavioral mistakes with your finances.
We can also help you spot issues that you might not be thinking about at all. There is no one-size-fits all approach. The recommendations you receive from Alpha Street will be customized based on your values around money and reflect your own unique goals and priorities.

Why do investors choose Alpha Street to manage their wealth?
Aligned Interests. We are 100% fee-based, not commission based.
Comprehensive. Finding under-valued assets is difficult. We don't believe it should be made harder by limiting the potential investable universe. We are global and multi-asset, not sector or style-specific.
No Divide Between Relationship and Analysis. Wall Street has re-structured asset management into those who manage relationships and those who analyze investments. We do not.
A Higher Standard. Investment advisors have a "fidcuiary" duty always to act in the best interest of our clients, not just ensure "suitability" as it is for brokers.
Our Wealth Management philosophy starts with a thorough understanding of the unique needs of each client. Some may be preserving capital, while others are focused on growing capital to achieve specific goals. Some have exceptionally complex investments with multiple managers, others have just one account. What each client does share is a thoughtful assessment of how we can achieve his or her financial goals through prudent investing and risk management.
Typically, the first step is to create an asset allocation strategy that incorporates a client's financial objectives adjusted for risk.
Once an appropriate asset mix is established, we select the appropriate fixed income and equity investments through research-- both proprietary and Street-- with an eye to high quality securities that are mispriced in the market. While we have a long-term view, we will also manage to the near-term to attempt to limit volatility and risk. Next, we layer alternative investments into the asset mix principally using ETFs, but we will utilize alliances in illiquid areas such as real estate and private equity in an effort to lower overall volatility and to expand duration.
It is critical-- just as we would insist that our assets are held in custodial accounts-- that client assets are too. We have selected TD Ameritrade Institutional as our third-party clearing and custodial agent to house client assets.
