Inside the EasyVest product, you will find a Chatbot that is available throughout the product, whether you have an investment or not. The Chatbot can answer most investor questions and is frequently updated to support any new questions that it was previously unable to handle. In addition, Access Softek's team of client service specialists are available via email at InvestSupport@AccessSoftek.com. General requests are typically answered within one business day, but some requests require significant research that may delay the response to you.
Currently, EasyVest only supports a single investment account for each membership.
As with any investment, there is a risk that you may lose your investment. Should the market value of your account decline, your account may lose value. However, portfolios managed within an EasyVest account are rebalanced monthly to maintain the level of risk that aligns with your goals.
Your investment account is not protected against loss by any insurances. Accounts at DriveWealth, LLC, are insured by the Securities Investor Protection Coporation, which protects investment accounts should DriveWealth experience financial difficulty. However, SIPC insurance does not protect your account against loss caused by market decline.
DriveWealth, which provides brokerage services through EasyVest to SharePoint CU members, is an SEC-registered broker-dealer and a member of FINRA/SIPC, a regulator for all securities firms doing business in the United States.
The minimum initial deposit required is $200. Once you open your account, you must maintain a balance of at least $200.
Rebalancing is the practice of moving funds between exchange traded funds (ETFs) over time to align the overall investment strategy with a member's financial goals. Each EFT is a diversified investment that changes over time. As EFTs change, they may become more or less aligned with an investor's financial desire. When that happens, money is moved around to ensure it is being invested most appropriately. Rebalancing is done monthly.
If, at any point, you would like to close your EasyVest account, please contact the team by email at InvestSupport@AccessSoftek.com. You will be charged for any remaining fees if your account is closed before the billing cycle ends. All recurring and/or scheduled deposits and withdrawals will be cancelled. Processing may be delayed up to one full business day to accommodate possible ACH transfers.
The final balance from your closed account will be transferred back to your SharePoint CU account by ACH deposit, which may take up to 3-5 business days. You may not close your account until it has been open for at least 30 days.
Automated investment management is a data-driven, algorithmic approach to investing. By understanding hings about an investor, like their financial goals and risk tolerance, the automated system is able to process and analyze significant amounts of data in real time to make frequent enhancements to an investor's portfolio. This helps ensure that all money invested in the portfolio is being put to the best possible use according to the investor's profile.
When using EasyVest, you create an investment account that invests in securities. Your account is not a SharePoint Credit Union share. The investment account is held at DriveWealth, LLC, a securities brokerage firm that is not associated with SharePoint CU. The account is managed by Access Softek Advisory Services, LLC, which is also not affiliated with SharePoint CU.
