Our transition timeline: from confidential consultation to transfer of assets

When I moved to FundEX, the management and advisor support teams were incredible – knowledgeable, friendly and focused on my needs. They were there for me 24/7 and made the whole process straightforward and seamless. A major plus is the ability to obtain client approvals electronically through eSign. I am extremely pleased with my decision to join the FundEX family and look forward to many years with this outstanding firm.
