Frequently Asked Questions


Delta is a registered investment adviser.  We are a high service firm that makes portfolio allocations based on a careful assessment of market risk.  By continually evaluating market risk and actively managing portfolios, we have been able to optimize both profits and safety.

Why Delta Investment Management?

Delta has deep experience and the flexibility to deliver to you wealth management that fit your specific financial objectives.  As an independent investment advisor, we do not benefit by unnecessarily trading your account or placing you in sub-optimal investments because of beneficial commission arrangements.  We are transparent and partner with you to achieve investment success.

How do I get started?

Call us today at (415) 249-6337 or email us at info@deltaim.com  and we can talk with you about how we can help.

What kind of transparency and security is there?

Delta is a registered investment adviser.  To provide you with a higher level of transparency and security, we use third party custodians. Investments reside at an independent custodial institution. Clients maintain free and clear ownership of portfolio assets at all times.  A third party custodian allows you visibility into your account 24/7 and a source of independent accounting and reporting of your assets.  Your brokerage choices are Charles Schwab, TD Ameritrade, Interactive Brokers, and Jefferson National.

Do I get monthly statements from Delta Investment Management?

Because your assets are held at an independent brokerage firm (Charles Schwab, TD Ameritrade and others), your brokerage firm will send you monthly statements and trade confirmations.  Furthermore, these brokerage firms have online account access, so you are able to view your account any time you wish.  We are always available to jointly review your account with you by phone.

Do you work on margin?

Delta generally does not use margin in client accounts.  We believe in solid growth over time with acceptable levels of risk.

How do I decide which Delta Investment Management program to use?

We recommend that you contact us for a personal consultation to determine what is suitable. We will provide a portfolio evaluation and a recommendation on how to allocate your assets.  Please contact us at (415) 249-6337 or send an email to info@deltaim.com.

Does Delta Investment Management have the ability to withdraw assets from my account?

Delta Investment Management cannot withdraw any of your assets, except for management fees with your written permission.  If you prefer to pay your management fees outside your account, we’ll arrange that for you.

Does Delta manage IRA accounts?

Yes, Delta Investment Management manages IRA accounts.  Gains in some of our tactical strategies are short-term, thus IRA accounts are particularly well suited for our programs as they are tax-deferred.

How will I receive my year end tax information?

You will receive a 1099 tax reporting form from your custodian.

Will I have Internet access to my account?

Yes.  Internet access will be provided by your custodian.

What are the fees?

Fees depend on the strategy, custodian and size of the account.
