The minimum account size for these programs is between $25,000 and $1 million.

1. Investment Profile
After you settle on an advisory program, you and your Financial Advisor work together to determine your investment profile.
2. Asset Allocation
That profile is used to select an appropriate asset allocation model (broad-level investment mix) that best suits your investment goals, the amount of time you have to invest, and how much risk you're willing to take.
3. Investment Selection
Your investment portfolio is built around your chosen asset allocation model.
4. Portfolio Monitoring
Your Financial Advisor, a Wells Fargo Advisors team of strategists, or an outside professional money manager (basically, whoever manages the portfolio) monitors your portfolio's performance.
5. Rebalancing
When your portfolio isn't quite working the way it should, the portfolio manager will rebalance it based on the recommended asset allocation. However, if your situation has changed, you and your Financial Advisor may need to re-address your investment profile and asset allocation.
