We invite you to learn about our proprietary models.

Not only do the 3D and EQIS investment teams conduct exhaustive due diligence on the asset managers and model portfolios made available on Freedom Advisors, we also offer a wide variety of our own models across the risk spectrum from multi-manager models to single-strategist ETF and fund models.

Fractional Shares

Every investment firm and advisor is talking about fractional shares lately. What are they, exactly? It’s pretty simple: a fractional share is less than one full share of a stock. Rather than a unit of ownership measured by whole shares, it is measured by dollar amounts.

Where do Fractional Shares Come From?

There are several ways a stock can be fractionalized:

  • During a stock split, if shares cannot be split evenly
  • During company mergers, combined stock values may result in some fractional shares
  • Dividend reinvestment programs
  • Some financial institutions offer their clients the option to purchase fractional shares

The Benefits of Fractional Shares

The primary benefit is simple. Fractional shares enable ownership of stock that may otherwise be too costly for the investor to access. For example, one share of the fictional ABC Company costs $5,000. But with fractional shares, an investor can own $100 of ABC Company stock, or just 2% of a share.

EQIS has been leveraging the power of fractional shares technology for over a decade

By trading in dollar amounts rather than share quantities, EQIS investors own individual securities in the percentages and ratios recommended by our money managers. This permits broad diversification across equity styles, asset classes, geographic regions, and philosophies with a smaller portion of the assets normally required to create the same portfolio in whole shares. EQIS’s fractional share technology allows accounts to benefit from a diversified allocation from multiple institutional and boutique money managers with a low account minimum.*

On the Freedom Advisors platform there are several ways a stock can be fractionalized:

  • Individual investors don’t need to worry about meeting money manager minimums.
  • The integrity of portfolio construction is not compromised due to money manager minimum requirements
  • Fractional share technology enables accounts with $25,000 or more to have a diversified, multi-manager allocation without regard for the normal manager-direct account minimums.

* $25,000 account minimum. Fractional shares are not available at every custodian.
