What makes Nicotera Wealth Management unique?

  • Fee-Based Services - We are not paid to sell products, we are paid to manage wealth and control risk. We do not receive commissions for portfolio management. (Fee based portfolio management services are offered though LPL Financial.)
  • Experience - We have over 23 years experience managing wealth in all types of market environments.

How do you charge for your services?

  • An annual management fee (billed quarterly) for investment management services is charged. Actively managed accounts have no surrender charges and clients are free to leave at any time.  In our opinion, the only reason clients stay with us is because of their satisfaction with our services, which we strive to earn every day.

How often will I receive statements and updates?

  • Clients are updated monthly with hardcopy statements in addition to quarterly performance reporting. Additionally, all clients can request free online access to view their accounts.

What types of investments do you use?

  • Individual Equities (stocks), Mutual Funds, and ETF's / ETN's (Exchange Traded Funds / Notes) are employed as investment vehicles within our portfolios. Depending on the model's objective, a portfolio may hold one, two or a combination of all three of these vehicles.

What is SIPC coverage?

The LPL Financial SIPC Membership provides account protection up to a maximum of $500,000 per customer, of which $100,000 may be claims for cash. An explanatory brochure is available at www.sipc.org .

Additionally, through London Insurers, LPL Financial accounts have additional securities protection to cover the net equity of customer accounts up to an overall firm limit of $575,000,000 subject to conditions and limitations.

The account protection applies when an SIPC member firm fails financially and is unable to meet obligations to security clients, but does not protect against losses from the rise and fall in the market value of investments.

The not-for-profit membership corporation was mandated by the Securities Investor Protection Act and has more than 6,000 members. Its board is appointed by the US president, the treasury secretary, and the Federal Reserve Board. Assessments from members and investments in government securities provide money for the SIPC Fund.
