What can I expect from a client relationship with James Investment?

For private clients, James Investment prefers to touch base with clients on a quarterly basis at a minimum. Typically this will involve one or two in-person meetings per year, and either a Zoom meeting or conference calls one or two times per year. Again, this is at a minimum. Clients have discretion as to designing what kind of relationship they prefer to have on an individual basis.

For clients of our SMA wrap-fee model portfolios, James Capital Alliance lets the financial advisors at the broker-dealer direct the relationship, and will loop James Capital Alliance in when and where appropriate.

For clients in our family of mutual funds, James Advantage Funds provides excellent resources on our website including special studies, weekly market commentaries, daily NAV prices, and monthly performance updates. Shareholders are also welcome to contact us at 1-800-99JAMES to speak with an investment advisor representative.
