Delta is a registered investment adviser. To provide you with a higher level of transparency and security, we use third party custodians. Investments reside at an independent custodial institution. Clients maintain free and clear ownership of portfolio assets at all times. A third party custodian allows you visibility into your account 24/7 and a source of independent accounting and reporting of your assets.  Your brokerage choices are Charles Schwab, TD Ameritrade, Interactive Brokers, and Jefferson National.

Because your assets are held at an independent brokerage firm (Charles Schwab, TD Ameritrade and others), your brokerage firm will send you monthly statements and trade confirmations. Furthermore, these brokerage firms have online account access, so you are able to view your account any time you wish. We are always available to jointly review your account with you by phone.

Delta generally does not use margin in client accounts. We believe in solid growth over time with acceptable levels of risk.

We recommend that you contact us for a personal consultation to determine what is suitable. We will provide a portfolio evaluation and a recommendation on how to allocate your assets. Please contact us at (415) 249-6337 or send an email to
