Working With Us

If you would like to learn about becoming a client you can reach us at 973-544-6970 or email us by writing to info@ridgewoodinvestments.com to set up an informational interview and private consultation.

In this consultation, we will work with you to develop a better understanding of your unique situation and needs and provide you an opportunity to ask any questions you may have. If you and we both agree that there is a good fit, becoming a client involves the steps listed below (though we will usually gather the necessary information by telephone and fill out and send you the needed forms for your signature):

  1. Review required information disclosure: (Form ADV Part 2A and 2B) about Ridgewood Investments (Please note: You should also review our privacy policy. You can review both of these documents and keep them for your records). 
  2. Review and complete Investment Management Agreement with Ridgewood Investments (Note: Please review and complete the Investment Management Agreement in full including all appendices and required signatures).
  3. You need to have one or more accounts that you would like us to handle.  If you would like us to handle your existing account, you need to return the above Investment Management Agreement instructing us to manage your account(s) at your existing custodian.  If you need to set up a new account, we will assist you with the custodian account forms. Note: The client will receive regular statements and confirms directly from the custodian for separately management accounts.  Ridgewood Investments serves as your investment advisor is only authorized to make discretionary investment decisions on your behalf and, if applicable, to deduct our specified management fees from the accounts when due.
  4. Fund account by securities transfer from existing accounts , by completing a retirement rollover by contacting your former employer,  or by sending a check or wire directly to your custodian for deposit into your new account (if applicable).  All deposits and transfers of securities are made directly to the custodians, not to Ridgewood.
