    Default Acumen Capital

    Anyone have funds being managed by this outfit, or similar? Any better ones you'd recommend?

    Wondering what is the minimal amount they will manage, does $200K make it. Do they yield better returns (after fees) than a standard Sunlife mutual fund?

    Also wondering, say there is a big market correction, will they move my managed funds to different vehicle, like gold, to minimize loss? Or do they basically just put my money into a version of mutual funds, and accept fact market goes up/down, but will be generally up over long term?

    If this has already been discussed, can you point to the thread...

    No input on this specific outfit, however, I would caution you to read the other financial advisor / adviser threads and determine if you actually want someone managing your money vs Robo options or passive / self managed options.

    So what insights can you share re: the place?

    OP, I have no experience with Acumen, but I do have experience with KL Advisory Group (disclaimer: I built their website and am a client of theirs re: corporate insurance/pension). They are a fee-based financial advisor (fiduciary). Their minimum for investment management is $100k w/ 1% management fee.
