Our advisors vary their investment strategies based on your personal goals. However, the main investment strategies our advisors incorporate include:
Foundational: Globally-diversified portfolios designed to help clients meet both short- and long-term financial goals, with an option to focus on yield and income.
Impact: For clients aiming to pursue their financial goals through investments aligning with their beliefs and values. These portfolios are built with a focus of addressing environmental, social, and governance (ESG) concerns through a combination of scoring metrics and analysis of the direct impacts that the underlying holdings aim to achieve.
Thematic: For clients who want to tailor their investments with a focus on an emerging theme, industry, or market trend.

We charge a blended annual advisory fee of 0.75-0.85%, which we calculate based on the daily total value of your Personal Advice accounts. Our rate is tiered, meaning we charge you separate rates depending on your portfolio's asset level. Also, the fee is blended. This means once the rates are applied for each tier, we add together the separate calculated fees to arrive at one blended amount that we automatically charge you at the end of the month.
Keep in mind, we don't charge advisory fees on Self-Directed accounts or Cash-Enhanced Robo Portfolios. We only apply the blended advisory fee to your Personal Advice accounts.
Here's a look at our tiered rate amounts:
ASSETS UNDER CARE (REQUIRED MINIMUM OF $100,000)
ANNUAL ADVISORY RATE
Each dollar above $250,000, up to $1,000,000
Each dollar above $1,000,000
Your dedicated advisor will walk you through this and provide more details.

After your initial consultation, you'll work with your dedicated advisor to set goals and look at portfolio strategies catered to your specific needs. From those conversations, they’ll create your personalized financial plan and review it with you. If you decide to move forward, your advisor will then open your account.
We require a $100,000 minimum in assets under care to open an account. Assets under care are investments and money that will be held in your Personal Advice portfolio and managed by us.
We offer the following Personal Advice account types:
Beneficiary Roth IRA
Assets under care are funds in your Personal Advice portfolio invested with us or transferred from other financial institutions. We manage these funds directly. They don't include Robo Portfolios, Self-Directed accounts, or assets and accounts from financial institutions outside of Ally you've linked to.
No. You'll exclusively work with your dedicated advisor remotely. This location independence provides you with access to the advisor who's the best match for you, regardless of office location.
Expense ratios show how much an exchange-traded fund (ETF) is charging for its own internal advisory, brokerage, fees, and other expenses. Not covered by the annual advisory fee, these charges are deducted from the ETF’s net asset value, and are standard expenses all ETF shareholders pay.
Expense ratios vary by ETF. However, the expense ratios of the ETFs used in the socially-responsible Impact, Thematic, and Foundational Income portfolios are materially higher than those included in other portfolios, and in some cases, more than double. As a result, these portfolios may have a lower net return compared to our other Personal Advice portfolios.
