GFS is not a custodian for your assets, we are your financial consultants. Your portfolio is carried like a regular securities account in your name with one of our partner banks in Europe.
Furthermore we offer access to US Brokerage Accounts through our cooperation with National Financial Services, a subsidiary of Fidelity Investments.
A limited power-of-attorney for your account allows us to forward orders to buy and sell for your account, and monitor their correct execution and the fees involved.
Our partner banks offer special rates for our customers. The money saved in transaction fees generally compensate for our consulting fees. Unit purchases in most mutual funds are load-free for our customers.
