Advisory Agreement

January 1st, 2022

You (“Client”) and WealthDrive, Inc., a Virginia corporation and SEC registered investment adviser (“WealthDrive” or “Adviser”), agree to enter into an investment advisory relationship (the “Agreement”) pursuant to which WealthDrive shall exclusively manage the assets in account(s) that you establish at a designated custodian  with whom WealthDrive has an existing custodial agreement. This Agreement is effective as of the first day a brokerage account is (a) opened at a designated custodian pursuant to this Agreement, and (b)  ready to receive trading instructions from WealthDrive (the “Effective Date”). In consideration of the mutual covenants herein, Client and WealthDrive agree as follows:

Services of Advisor

Client appoints WealthDrive to exclusively manage one or more accounts established and owned by Client (each the “Client Account,” “WealthDrive Account” or “Account”). WealthDrive shall manage the Accounts in accordance with an investment plan recommended by WealthDrive to Client from time to time based on profile information provided by Client (“Investment Profile”), and in accordance with certain additional investment options designated by Client (the “Plan”). Client authorizes WealthDrive to supervise and direct the investment and reinvestment of assets in the Client Accounts, with full authority and discretion (without consultation with the Client), on the Client’s behalf and at the Client’s risk, and in accordance with the Client’s Plan, to purchase and sell securities, including but not limited to stocks, exchange traded funds (“ETFs”), mutual funds (including without limitation money market mutual funds as separate investments), and/or similarly traded instruments (collectively “Securities”), as well as to manage cash balances within the Client Accounts. Without in any way limiting the foregoing and for the avoidance of doubt, Client cannot issue individual trading instructions to WealthDrive to purchase and/or sell specific Securities to be executed at particular times. Only WealthDrive shall have authority to issue trading instructions to purchase and sell Securities in the Client Accounts, pursuant to the discretionary authority granted to WealthDrive by Client under this Agreement. WealthDrive shall not have any duty or obligation to advise or take any action on behalf of Client in any legal proceedings, including bankruptcies or class actions, involving Securities held in or formerly held in the Account, or the issuers of Securities. Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, WealthDrive shall have no authority hereunder to take or have possession of any assets in the Account, or to direct delivery of any Securities or payment of any funds held in that Account to itself, or to direct any disposition of such Securities or funds, except to Client, or as directed by Client, pursuant to valid legal authority, or as provided in Section titled: Automatic Payment of Fees.

Custodian

The Assets shall be held by an independent Custodian (“Custodian”), not the Adviser, the identity of which Custodian shall be communicated to the Client.  The Adviser is authorized to give instructions to the Custodian with respect to all investment decisions regarding the Account.  The Custodian is authorized and directed to effect transactions, deliver securities, make payments and otherwise take such actions, in respect of the Assets, as the Adviser shall direct.  The custodial fees charged to the Client are exclusive of, and in addition to, Advisory Fees charged by Adviser.

Client Rights & Obligations

Each Client retains sole ownership of the Account (i.e. the right to withdraw securities or cash, exercise or delegate proxy voting and receive transaction(s) confirmation(s)).  The Client may make deposits and withdrawals at any time, subject to any maintenance requirements of the Account minimum.

Legal Capacity

If this Agreement is established by the undersigned Client, or the Client’s authorized representative in a fiduciary capacity, the Client hereby certifies that he/she is legally empowered to enter into or perform this Agreement in such a capacity.  If this Agreement is established by a corporation, the undersigned certifies:

  • The Agreement has been duly authorized, executed and delivered on behalf of such corporation.
  • The Agreement is executed pursuant to a validly certified copy of a resolution of the Board of Directors of the corporation to that effect and authorizing the appropriate officers of the corporation to act on its behalf in connection with this Agreement.

Investment Objectives & Restrictions

The Client agrees to provide information and/or documentation requested by the Adviser, as pertains to the Client’s income, investments, taxes, insurance, estate plan, etc.  The Client also agrees to discuss investment objectives, needs, and goals with the Adviser via a questionnaire.  The Client acknowledges that the Adviser will rely on the personal and investment information provided to the Adviser by the Client, the Client’s attorney, accountant, or other professionals in managing the Account.  The Client agrees to give the Adviser prompt written notice of any modifications, changes or investment restrictions applicable to the Account, and to notify the Adviser if the Client deems any investments recommended or made for the Account to be in violation of such investment objectives and/or restrictions.

Unless the Client promptly notifies the Adviser in writing of specific investment restrictions on the Account, the investments recommended for or made on behalf of the Account shall be deemed to be in conformity with the Client’s investment objectives. Although tax considerations are not generally a factor in managing accounts, it is the Client’s responsibility to notify the Adviser if such considerations are relevant to the Client’s overall financial circumstances.

The Client acknowledges that the Adviser cannot adequately perform its services for the Client unless the Client diligently performs his/her responsibilities under this Agreement.  The Adviser shall not be required to verify any information obtained from the Client, the Client’s attorney, accountant, or other professionals, and is expressly authorized to rely upon the information provided by these professionals.

The Client shall have the ability to impose reasonable restrictions on the management of the Account, including the ability to instruct the Adviser not to purchase certain mutual funds, stocks, or other securities.

Representation

It is understood by the Client that the Adviser is a Virginia corporation, and that the Adviser is licensed/registered with all of the appropriate regulatory jurisdictions with which the Adviser believes they have a duty to be licensed/registered.  It is understood and acknowledged by the Client that the Adviser is not engaged in the practice of law or accounting, and as such, will not render any legal or accounting advice hereunder, nor prepare any legal or accounting documents for the implementation of any of the Client’s financial or investment plans.

Non-Exclusive Management

It is understood that the Adviser performs investment advisory services for other clients.  The Client agrees that the Adviser may give advice and take action with respect to any of its other clients, which may differ from the advice given or the timing or nature of action taken with respect to the Client’s Account, so long as it is the Adviser’s policy to the extent practical, to allocate investment opportunities to the Account over a period of time on a fair and equitable basis relative to other clients.  The Adviser, its officers, employees, and agents, may have or take the same or similar positions in specific investments for their own accounts, or for the accounts of other clients, as the Adviser does for the Client’s Account.

Adviser Fee

Adviser is compensated for its advisory services by charging an adviser fee based off account size on the net market value of a Client’s Account. Multiple accounts by a Client, registered to the same social security number, may be considered one consolidated account for billing purposes. WealthDrive’s adviser fee schedule is as follows:

Total Assets Under Management

Adviser Fees

Minimum Advisory Fee

$0

$499,999.99

1.95%/year

Up to $1,200.00/year

$500,000

$999,999.99

1.75%/year

$1,000,000

and Greater

1.55%/year

WealthDrive’s adviser fee is the fee amount charged and retained by WealthDrive. The custodians that may be used to exercise custody over assets charge fees that are over and above the fee charged by WealthDrive. Depending on the custodian, the Adviser Fee may be charged in arrears on a daily, monthly or quarterly basis.

WealthDrive reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to negotiate, reduce or waive the advisory fee for certain Client Accounts for any period of time determined solely by WealthDrive. In addition, WealthDrive may reduce or waive its adviser fees for the Accounts of some Clients without notice to, or fee adjustment for, other Clients.

Bills will be sent out for the days managed to the email address of record if assets leave during the middle of a billing cycle for services rendered by WealthDrive.  Folio Institutional, ProFunds, HealthSavings, and American Funds have fees for being a custodian that are separate and in addition to fees listed in this agreement.  Clients should review Broker/Dealer and/or Custodian paperwork to determine the final fee schedules that are separate and in addition to fees charged by WealthDrive.

Clients are responsible for the payment of all third-party fees (i.e. Custodian fees, mutual fund fees, transaction fees etc.).  The Adviser Fee (WealthDrive’s fee), does not include brokerage commissions, transaction fees, transfer taxes, wire transfer, or electronic fund fees, and other related costs or expenses.  Clients may also pay fees and expenses at the Fund level (e.g. shareholder service fees, etc.) and may incur additional charges when purchasing or redeeming Fund shares.  In addition, some Funds have 30 to 90 day holding periods, and may charge an early redemption fee if a sell signal is issued within the required holding period.  Early redemption fees can occur due to the timing of WealthDrive signals, withdrawals by the Client, and from WealthDrive redeeming adviser fees.

Clients are furnished with specific Fund restrictions upon request.  WealthDrive provides no guarantee of exchange execution on the signal receipt date.  While WealthDrive attempts to move all Clients within 24 hours of a signal, a delay of up to five (5) business days could occur because of factors beyond the control of WealthDrive.  Such a delay could significantly affect performance.  WealthDrive assumes no responsibility for losses resulting from such delays.

WealthDrive shall not increase the stated Adviser Fee unless 10-days notice is provided either electronically or by physical mail.

Automatic Payment of Fee

The Client agrees to authorize the Custodian to pay directly to WealthDrive, upon receipt of notice, the Account’s adviser fee.  Fee withdrawals will occur no more frequently than monthly from the Client’s Account, unless specifically instructed otherwise by the Client.  WealthDrive agrees to send to the Client an invoice reflecting the amount of the fee, the average closing balance for the Client’s Account on which the fee was based, and the specific manner in which the fee was calculated.  The Custodian will send to the Client a statement, at least quarterly, indicating all amounts disbursed from the Account, including the fee paid directly to WealthDrive.  WealthDrive’s access to the Assets of the Account will be limited to the withdrawals authorized above.

Valuation

The Custodian will value the securities in the Client Account that are listed on a national securities exchange or on the NASDAQ at the closing price, on the valuation date, or on the principal market where the securities are traded.  The Custodian will value other securities or investments in the Client Account(s) in a manner that the Custodian believes in good faith reflect their fair market value.

Confidential Relationship

All information and advice furnished by either party to the other, including their respective agents and employees, shall be treated as confidential and shall not be disclosed to third parties, except as required by law or necessary to carry out designated powers or as granted by the Client.

Notices & Communications

Communications will be sent to the Client at the address provided by the Client at the time the Client opens the Account, or to another address as may be provided to the Adviser in writing in the future.  All communications sent to the Client at the stipulated address, whether by mail, facsimile, electronically, or otherwise, will be treated as if they were given to the Client personally, whether or not the Client receives them.  Reports of order executions will be conclusive if not objected to by the Client within three days after being forwarded to the Client, and statements of Account will be conclusive if not objected to by the Client within 10 days after being forwarded to the Client.

Termination

This Agreement will continue in effect until terminated by either party with a thirty (30) day written notice to the other, in person or by mail to the address of record.  In the event the Agreement is terminated, and the Client has advanced any fees which have been unearned as of the date of termination, such unearned fees shall be immediately refunded to the Client.  Any fees that are due, but have not been paid, will be billed to the Client and are due immediately.

Termination of this Agreement will not affect (i) the validity of any action previously taken by the Adviser under this Agreement; (ii) liabilities or obligations of the parties from transactions initiated before termination of this Agreement; or (iii) the Client’s obligation to pay advisory fees (pro-rated through the date of termination); (iv) the obligation of the parties to resolve any disputes between them in accordance with the Dispute Resolution clause of this Agreement, including the arbitration requirements contained therein.  Upon the termination of this Agreement, the Adviser will have no obligation to recommend or take any action with regard to the securities, cash or other investments in the Account.  The Adviser will provide the Client with a pro-rata refund of the Client’s prepaid advisory fees to the extent that one is due. 

The death or incapacity of the Client shall not terminate the authority of the Adviser granted herein until the Adviser receives written termination notice from the Client’s executor, guardian, attorney-in-fact, or other authorized representative.

Insurance Agents

The Client acknowledges that the investment adviser representatives of WealthDrive may also be licensed insurance agents.  Through the distribution of fixed life insurance products, normal and customary sales commissions and other income may be paid to WealthDrive and its advisors.  This income is in addition to any management fees the Client may have paid to WealthDrive.

Proxies & Class Action Lawsuits

The Adviser will not vote proxies on behalf of the Client’s Account.  Additionally, the Adviser will not be required to take any action or render any advice with respect to voting of proxies solicited by or with respect to the issuers of securities in which Assets of the Account may be invested from time to time.  Further, the Adviser will not take any action or render any advice with respect to any securities held in the Account, which are named in or subject to class action lawsuits.  The Adviser will, however, forward to the Client any information received by the Adviser regarding class action legal matters involving any security held in the Account.

Risk Acknowledgement

The Adviser does not guarantee the future performance of the Account or any specific level of performance, the success of any investment decision or strategy that the Adviser may use, or the success of Adviser’s overall management of the Account.  The Client understands that investment decisions made for the Client’s Account by the Adviser are subject to various market, currency, economic, political, geopolitical, acts of terrorism, and business risks, and that those investment decisions will not always be profitable.  THE CLIENT’S INVESTMENTS WILL GO UP OR DOWN, DEPENDING ON MARKET CONDITIONS.  All recommendations will be based on information from sources believed to be reliable, but are not guaranteed by WealthDrive as to their accuracy or completeness.

Entire Agreement & Amendments

All agreements, covenants, representations, and warranties express and implied, oral and written, of the parties hereto concerning the subject matter hereof are contained herein.  No other agreements, covenants, representations or warranties, express or implied, are made a part hereof.  All prior and contemporaneous conversations, negotiations, possible and alleged agreements, representations, covenants and warranties concerning the subject matter hereof are merged herein.  WealthDrive has the right to amend this Agreement without notice to the Client.  Any such amendment will be effective as of the date specified by WealthDrive.  However, regardless of anything else in this Agreement, any increase in fees, any deletion or substitution by WealthDrive of any of the services or in connection with the Account, and any material modification of any such services, will be the subject of a minimum of 10-days prior notice to the Client. 

Governing Law

Except to the extent preempted by federal law, the internal law of the State of Virginia (without reference to that body of law known as choice of law or conflicts of law) will govern the construction, validity, and administration of this Agreement.  However, nothing in this Agreement will be construed contrary to the Advisers Act.

Standard of Care

In providing such services, it is agreed that except for gross negligence, intentional malfeasance, or violation of applicable law, neither the Adviser nor any of its principals, directors or employees shall be liable for any action performed or for any errors of judgment in managing the Client’s Account under this Agreement.  However, the State Securities Laws and Federal Securities Laws impose liabilities under certain circumstances, and therefore nothing contained in this Agreement with respect to liabilities should be construed as limiting a Client’s rights which he/she may have under applicable State Securities Laws and/or Federal Securities Laws.

Assignment of Agreement

No assignment, as that term is defined in the Advisers Act, of this Agreement shall be made by the Adviser without the prior written consent of the Client.  The Client acknowledges and agrees that transactions that do not result in a change of actual control or management of the Adviser shall not be considered an assignment pursuant to Rule 202(a)(1)-1 under the Advisors Act.

Waiver

Failure of either party at any time to declare breach and termination of Agreement due to any violation or violations by the other party of the provisions hereof shall not be deemed a waiver on the part of such party.  Any subsequent violations by the other party following a demand for strict compliance shall not be deemed a waiver, expressed or implied, and notice of breach thereafter, need not be served on the other party.

ERISA

Both parties acknowledge that if the Account is subject to the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) of 1974, as amended, the following provisions will apply:

  • The Adviser acknowledges that it is a “fiduciary” with respect to the Client as that term is defined under Section 3(21)(A) of ERISA.
  • The person signing this Agreement on behalf of the Client acknowledges its status as a “named fiduciary” with respect to the control and management of the assets held in the Account, and agrees to notify the Adviser promptly of any change in the identity of the named fiduciary with respect to the Account.
  • The Adviser agrees to obtain and maintain an ERISA bond satisfying the requirements of Section 412 of ERISA and include the Adviser and its members, agents, and employees among those insured under that bond.

The Client confirms that any instructions that have been given to the Adviser with regard to the Account are consistent with the governing plan documents and investment policy statements of the plan.  Except as otherwise provided under ERISA the Adviser shall not be liable for any error of judgment or mistake of law or for any loss suffered by the Client in connection with the matters to which this Agreement relates except a loss resulting from the Adviser’s breach of its fiduciary duty, negligence, misconduct, or bad faith.

The Adviser is not (i) the “administrator” of the Plan as defined in § 3(16)(A) of ERISA or (ii) the “plan administrator” of the Plan as defined in Section 414(g) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (“Code”); The Adviser is neither a law firm nor a public accounting firm and Adviser will not provide legal or accounting advice; The Client acknowledges that the services covered by this Agreement are consultative, and give no investment authority (“discretion”) or responsibility to the Adviser over any assets of the Plan or Participant regardless of how and where the assets are held.  Throughout the term of this Agreement, the Plan or Participant retains full discretion to supervise, manage, and direct the assets that may be held with any affiliated or unaffiliated third party.

Arbitration Agreement

The Client and the Adviser agree that all controversies which may arise between them concerning the provision of the services provided under this Agreement, or concerning the construction, performance, or breach of this Agreement, or in any way pertaining to or touching upon the rights and obligations of the parties under this Agreement, shall be determined by binding arbitration, in accordance with the rules of the American Arbitration Association.  Any arbitration shall take place in the same city and state where the Adviser is located.  The parties acknowledge, understand, and agree that:

  • Arbitration is final and binding on the parties.
  • The parties are waiving their right to seek remedies in court, including but not necessarily limited to the right to initiate an action in court, the right to a jury trial, and the right to participate in a class action in which Adviser has been named as a defendant, .
  • Pre-arbitration discovery is generally more limited than and potentially different in form and scope from court proceedings.
  • The Arbitration Award is not required to include factual findings or legal reasoning, and any party’s right to appeal or to seek modification of a ruling by the arbitrators is strictly limited.
  • The arbitration panel will be chosen exclusively by WealthDrive without the consent or agreement by Client(s).
  • APanel of arbitrators will typically include a minority of arbitrators who were or are affiliated with the securities industry.

In no way shall this Agreement constitute a waiver or limitation of rights that the Client may have under Federal or State Securities Laws to pursue a remedy by other means.
