With a minimum $10,000 investment and a 0.75% annual fee, our BBVA Wealth Solutions model portfolios are actively managed by portfolio managers and can help you reach your investment goals according to your unique investment profile. Our Risk Tolerance Questionnaire, developed in partnership with Morningstar, will recommend one of the available portfolios based on your timeline, risk tolerance, and overall investment goals:
Designed for the cautious investor with a low risk tolerance and/or a short time horizon. The main objective is to preserve capital while providing income.
Moderate Conservative Model
Appropriate for the investor who seeks both modest capital appreciation and income potential. While this model is designed to preserve capital, fluctuations in the values of the portfolio will likely occur from year to year.
Designed for the investor who seeks relatively stable growth with a lower level of income potential. The main objective is to achieve relatively steady growth while generally attempting to limit fluctuations in the portfolio to less than the overall U.S. equity market.
Moderate Aggressive Model
Designed for investors with a relatively high tolerance for risk and a longer time horizon. The main objective is capital appreciation, and these investors should be able to tolerate fluctuations in portfolio values.
Appropriate for investors who have both a high tolerance for risk and a long investment time horizon. The main objective is to provide high growth without providing current income.

Even if you reside outside the U.S., we have investment solutions available to you. Here are two services we offer to you:
Your cash account is a central brokerage account in the United States. Its primary purpose is the purchase, sale, and custody of investment products. The principal operations that can be performed with a cash account are:
- Deposit of funds through electronic transfer
- Purchase / sale of securities
- Custody of securities
- Withdrawal of funds through a payment order
- Deposits or transfers of securities
Account statements are issued monthly only when there has been account activity; otherwise, they are delivered quarterly with all account activities, operations details, securities positions, updated portfolio assessment, and available balances. The account statements are delivered by courier.
Once your cash account has been established, it can be converted into a margin account.
- A margin account allows you to obtain a loan for a percentage of your portfolio value, depending on the type of asset. Your portfolio value will be held in guarantee of payment when the values that comprise it are eligible to do so.
- Margin accounts have certain risks that investors must be aware of in order to deal with the consequences in case of market fluctuations.

OPTIONS TRADING: Options trading entails a significant level of risk and is not appropriate for all investors. Certain requirements must be met to trade options. Options transactions will be subject to the execution, delivery, and acceptance of separate agreements with Pershing LLC, the clearing firm for BBVA Investments. You should consult with your tax advisor since options trading may affect your tax situation.
TRADING ON MARGIN: All margin transactions will be subject to the execution, delivery, and acceptance of separate agreements with Pershing, LLC, the clearing firm for BBVA Investments. You must always contact BBVA Investments to verify the amount available based on your portfolio before requesting any operation involving margin credit. In some cases, the drop in value of the instruments constituting the guarantee can be so large that it becomes necessary to sell some or all of the portfolio to cover the guarantee proportion established in the margin credit contract. Your loss can be greater than the value of your account. This is why the investor must be aware of the risks involved in this type of account.
EQUITY LINKED CD: Please carefully review the terms and conditions for any Equity Linked CD's in which you invest though your BBVA Investments account for important information related to FDIC deposit insurance. Selling an Equity Linked CD prior to maturity is subject to market fluctuations and proceeds from the sale could be substantially less than the original deposit amount.
