Investment Management Services

Aquarius Financial is a California Registered Investment Advisor, providing fee‐only investment management for individuals and families from all walks of life. Fee‐only means that we do not earn commission from the sale of securities; instead we are compensated by asset-based fees for investment management services, and hourly fees for financial planning services.

$250,000 account minimum. We may lower this minimum requirement at our discretion. Contact Michael Grodsky if you are interested in our investment management services. Email: Phone: 323-293-6800.

Investment Style Options

  • Build your own: With over 2700 no-load and load-waived mutual funds to choose from, we help you to create model portfolios with custom asset allocation approaches for all risk levels.
  • Using multiple strategists: Our Market Movement Strategies program diversifies portfolios utilizing a Three Mandate process, which seeks to insulate your portfolio from the unpredictability of market cycles.
  • Single Strategist: For clients who prefer to utilize a single strategy, we provide access to a variety of strategists for each risk level. Strategic, Tactical and Diversifier strategists are available. Click here to see ’em all!

Strategist Selection

  • Strategic: This approach seeks to identify asset classes that maximize returns for a given level of risk. According to your level of risk, an optimal portfolio is constructed. As time passes, the portfolio is re-balanced periodically to maintain the original desired asset class mix.
  • Tactical: This is an active approach to asset allocation decisions. Like strategic asset allocation, an optimal portfolio is developed; however, changes are made to the portfolio based on underlying economic and market conditions. Asset classes are then over-weighted to capitalize on market inefficiencies.
  • Diversifier: Diversifiers are a counter balance to tactical asset allocation which focuses on risk and return, with an overarching goal to enhance diversification and protection. Diversifier strategies are very active and use a wider spectrum of alternative asset classes and approaches, with minimal dependence on market direction.
