How to access your account if you have trouble logging in.
At-a-glance view of pertinent account information
When you log in, you’ll see your personalized home page. Across the top, you have quick access to the other pages of your portal.
Your accounts and total portfolio value are listed front and center. Next to your accounts, you’ll also find your top holdings for quick reference.
You can stay connected to your financial team with clickable links to phone numbers, emails, and office locations.
You can also quickly contact your Advisor while on the go. In addition to contacting us, we will send you communications and updates from your team—all directly within the portal.
The Portfolio dashboard is where you can view additional details about your portfolio. The dashboard gives you a dynamic overview of your portfolio with performance cards highlighting key information of your portfolio.
To get even more detail, you can click on the title of each card. You can also use the drop-down menu to switch between the different cards quickly.
All of this is completely customizable using the filters to select specific date ranges, portfolios, or accounts.
Click on “Net Worth” in the navigation menu to see the drop-down menu and click on “My Accounts”.
On the My Accounts page, you can see a detailed list of your accounts. Balances and statuses are viewable at a glance. You can expand each account to see your holdings and their individual values.
Keep track of their status and updates directly from your portal.
Clients also have the option to aggregate assets and liabilities managed outside of SOL such as bank accounts, credit cards, 401K plans, and annuities. The primary purpose behind this feature is to provide clients with a unified view of their financial picture.
To add account, select Add in the top right corner of the My Accounts page. A menu will appear allowing the client to Choose an institution from the portal’s aggregation capabilities or to Add Manual Asset or Liability.
When choosing to add an account through the aggregation tool, the wizard will guide you through the setup process, which includes the following steps:
- Search for the institution (ie. Schwab, Pershing, J.P. Morgan, Morgan Stanley etc.)
- Enter Credentials when prompted
- Answer any Challenge Questions required
- Finally Aggregate accounts
- Repeat this process again to aggregate assets from additional custodians
Use the Gear icon next to the status column to update the credentials for an account or remove that account from aggregation on your portal. Accounts that are in process are excluded from the Account Total Value. Added accounts may take 24-48 hours to appear in a portfolio.
When choosing to manually add an asset or liability, you will be prompted to complete a list of the following:
- Asset Type: Options include Art, Boat, Car, Home, Jewelry, Other Asset, or Other Liability
- Account Category: Asset or Liability (category selection is required for inclusion in Net Worth reporting
- Account Name
- Valuation Date: The first valuation date will set the start date of the account
- Market Value
Once created/added, use the Gear icon to make updates to the added asset or liability. Click Remove to delete an account, once removed the account is closed as of the current date.
The advanced portal is powered by daily data updates. Enabling clients to access their portfolio information anytime, anywhere, at their convenience – all through an easy to use platform. Portal data updates take place twice per day. Once, at 9 AM, which loads data from the previous business day.
EXAMPLE: on December 31st 2018 at 11 AM, the platform loads data from the end of business on December 28th.
The second daily portal update takes place around 7 PM, which loads data from the previous business day plus any updates on cost basis, withholding tax, and transaction comments that are added after 9 AM.
EXAMPLE: on December 31st 2018 at 3 PM, the platform loads data from the end of business on December 28th, and includes any updates described above that were added after 10 AM on December 31st. Updates to cost basis, withholding tax, and transaction comments are always added to our system on the next business day, and are included in the second data update for the portal every day.

The document vault is a secure way for SOL to share important account related documents with clients. It also provides clients a way to securely share files, and photos of signed documents with SOL. The document center is one way SOL is making paperless options available to clients. A digital version of SOL reports and additional content sent via mail or email will also be posted here for your records.
For those who were receiving content in the old portal, the same content will be posted here in the document center. Please contact your client relationship manager or email us to request any content you would like to see in addition to the quarterly reports and management fee PDFs provided.
