Bill Losey Retirement Solutions, LLC (BLRS) is registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) as an investment adviser. Investment advisory services and Brokerage services and fees differ, and it is important for you to understand these differences. Free and simple tools are available to research firms and financial professionals at https://www.investor.gov/CRS, which also provides educational materials about broker-dealers, investment advisers, and investing.
BLRS offers ongoing portfolio management services based on the individual goals, objectives, time horizon, and risk tolerance of each client. BLRS creates an Investment Plan for each client, which outlines the client’s current situation (income, tax levels, and risk tolerance levels) and then constructs a plan to aid in the selection of a portfolio that matches each client’s specific situation. Investment supervisory services include, but are not limited to, investment strategy, personal investment plan, asset allocation, asset selection, risk tolerance and regular portfolio monitoring. BLRS evaluates the current investments of each client with respect to their risk tolerance levels and time horizon. BLRS does not have discretion over client accounts and clients make the ultimate decision whether to purchase or sell an investment. Financial plans and financial planning may include, but are not limited to: investment planning, life insurance; tax concerns; retirement planning; college planning; and debt/credit planning. For additional information, see, Items 5 and 7 of Form ADV Part 2A brochure which can be found by visiting: https://adviserinfo.sec.gov/. BLRS’ CRD# is 140731.

Clients are responsible for the payment of all third party fees (i.e. custodian fees, mutual fund fees, transaction fees, brokerage commissions, etc.) and other related costs and expenses which shall be incurred. Clients may incur certain charges imposed by custodians, brokers, third party investment managers and other third parties such as fees charged by managers, custodial fees, odd-lot differentials, transfer taxes, wire transfer and electronic fund fees, and other fees and taxes on brokerage accounts and securities transactions. Mutual funds and exchange traded funds also charge internal management fees, which are disclosed in a fund’s prospectus. Individual or IRA accounts may be assessed a $15 quarterly fee by SEI Private Trust Company at the end of any quarter where the account balance falls below $48,000. 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.

Help me understand how these fees and costs might affect my investments. If I give you $10,000 to invest, how much will go to fees and costs, and how much will be invested for me? What would make those fees more or less?
When we act as your investment adviser, we have to act in your best interest and not put our interest ahead of yours. Although we act in a fiduciary capacity, the way we make money creates some conflicts with your interests. In short, BLRS has an incentive to increase the assets in your account as a larger account will result in larger investment management fees to BLRS. You should understand and ask us about this conflict because it can affect the investment advice we provide you.
How might your conflicts of interest affect me, and how will you address them?
Bill Losey receives the profits and/or losses of BLRS. Fees are a percentage of assets.
