Why Choose GWP?

Why choose GWP?

How It Works

Step 1: Visit the link to a secure online portal where you will start your GWP investment journey.

Step 2: You'll then answer a few questions within the online portal about your goals and risk preferences to help us understand what you'd like to achieve with your GWP investment account. Generally, the longer you have until your goal (e.g., when you want to use the funds for their intended purpose, such as retirement), the more aggressive your investment strategy should be.

Step 3: Receive your customized proposal.

Step 4: Open your account

Step 5: You can fund your new GWP account from your bank account or an IRA account rollover.

Step 6: Sign your digital enrollment documents via eSignature technology, and let GWP do the rest! After your account is complete, you’ll receive an email from our partner, LPL Financial, to get set up with Account View 2.0 where you’ll be able to view your statements and edit your account details if needed. In most cases, you’ll be able to complete your GWP account opening online using eSignature technology. Sometimes other steps may be needed based on how you are funding your account.


Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is the minimum investment?

    All you need is $5,000 to get started investing for retirement, a major purchase or general investing.

  • What types of accounts can I set up through GWP?

    GWP account types currently include Individual, Traditional IRA, Roth IRA and Rollover IRA.

  • Who manages the GWP investment models?

    GWP uses LPL Research investment models spread across three major ETF sponsors to create and manage a diversified portfolio. GWP electronically monitors your account daily and rebalances it when needed to help you stay on track.

  • What will a GWP account cost me?

    All GWP accounts are advisory accounts in which your fee is based on the value of your assets rather than commissions. While still offering advisor guidance on your investments, GWP offers lower fees in relation to full-touch, offline advisory services. Your proposal will outline the fees applicable to your account. If you have questions pertaining to the fee prior to enrolling, please reach out to your advisor.

  • Once I complete the Investor Profile Questionnaire (IPQ) online, how do I receive a proposal?

    Your GWP proposal is automatically generated and presented to you online as soon as you complete the IPQ.

  • Why was I unable to proceed with the enrollment?

    If your responses to the Investment Profile Questionnaire (IPQ) indicate that you are very conservative or very aggressive in your risk tolerance, you will not be able to proceed with enrollment. GWP is intended for individuals without extremes in risk tolerance. You can adjust your responses to reflect a more moderate risk tolerance which will enable you to enroll. You will also be ineligible for enrollment if you are 62 years of age or older.

*An annual small account fee is applied to accounts with less than $10,000 invested.
