Client Relationship Summary / June 30, 2020

Item 1. Introduction

TimeCapital Investor Advisory Services, Inc. is registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission  as an Investment Adviser. We manage portfolios for clients under an Investment Advisory arrangement. The service and fees under an Investment Advisory arrangement may differ from the services and fees under a Brokerage arrangement. It is important for you to understand the differences. The SEC, at, offers free and simple investor education and research tools to learn about firms and financial professionals. Below you will find information about our services and fees.

Item 2. Relationships and Services

What investment services and advice can you provide me?

Separately Managed Accounts: We manage portfolios for retail investors on a discretionary basis.  We permit investors to choose their investment objective (from a set list of investment objectives). Under certain circumstances, we may agree to adhere to specific operating guidelines imposed by the client. When you hire us to manage your portfolio on a discretionary basis, we will buy and sell investments in your accounts without requiring your pre-approval on an ongoing basis until you notify us to end the discretionary authority. Portfolios are monitored on an ongoing basis.

Private Placement Solution:

Alpine Associates Funds, a hedge fund, is the only solution currently  offered. This private placement is used as part of a client’s asset allocation, we actively provide advice on an ongoing basis. All Alpines fees are disclosed in Alpine’s Private Placement Memorandum.

Multi-Manager Solution:

A clients’ discretionary investment program may be overseen by multiple  levels of financial professionals, including the advisor and the professional money managers who may manage some of the strategies in the portfolio. 

Non-Discretionary Advisor Oversight: 

Passive management takes a longer-term approach and  tends to have fewer transactions. These types of clients tend to be more sophisticated and would like more interaction with the decision-making process. Working with clients directly, each trade is discussed and reviewed with the client prior to any transaction. Periodic reviews are scheduled at the clients request.

The minimum investment is generally $100,000 (although we may waive such minimum).

Conversation starters to ask your financial professional: Given my financial situation, should  I choose an investment advisory service? Why or why not? How will you choose investments to recommend to me? What is your relevant experience, including your licenses, education and other 

qualifications? What do these qualifications mean?

Item 3. Fees, Costs, Conflicts and Standard of Conduct

What fees will I pay?

Our fees and compensation may vary, but will typically consist of a percentage of assets under  management. Our advisory fees are assessed in advance, and collected quarterly. 

When we act as your investment adviser, we are required to act in your best interest and put your interests  ahead of our own. Occasionally, the method by which we are compensated creates a conflict of interest. TimeCapital Securities Corporation “TCS” is an affiliated broker-dealer and the principals of Advisor are registered representatives of TCS. TCS may receive compensation from Portfolio Managers that we select for or recommend to our clients when we recommend that our managed account clients directly invest with a Portfolio Manager. Such compensation generally includes a portion of the management fees and incentive fees that such Portfolio Manager receives in connection with the capital we recommend to such Portfolio Manager. In particular, a substantial majority of the private investment funds’ (Private Placement) capital is allocated to a Portfolio Manager that pays a portion of its management fees and incentive fess to TCS (and TCS receives fees earned on the capital it refers to such Portfolio Manager).

Additional Information: You will pay fees and costs whether you make or lose money on  your investments. Fees and costs will reduce any amount of money you make on your investments over time. Please make sure you understand what fees and costs you are paying. For more detailed information about our fees, costs and conflicts of interest please review our Form ADV Part 2A, Item 5 and 10 which can be found at 

How do your financial professionals make money?

Our compensation is based on the amount of client assets we service. The more assets we have in an  advisory account, including cash, the more you will pay us in advisory fees and the more we will earn. The firm may therefore have an incentive to encourage the retail investor to increase the assets in his or her account. 

Conversation starters to ask your financial professional: Help me understand how fees and  costs affect my investments. If I give you $10,000 to invest, how much will go to fees and how much will be invested for me? What are your legal obligations when acting as my investment adviser? How else does your firm make money and what conflicts of interest do you have? How might your conflicts affect  me, and how will you address them?
