The Foundation of Folio Institutional

The company was founded in 1999 by Steven Wallman, a former commissioner of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission widely recognized for advocacy on behalf of investors. We are based in the Washington, D.C. suburb of McLean, in the heart of the Northern Virginia high-technology corridor.

Mr. Wallman gained a unique perspective on Wall Street during his years as a Commissioner of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. He saw first-hand how the needs of many investors were not being fully met by existing financial institutions and existing financial investment vehicles. Folio Institutional was founded, in part, to provide advisors and other professionals the tools they need to deliver better solutions to their clients:

  • With Folios, investors of all sizes and investment styles can enjoy the advantages of a flexible and diversified portfolio.
  • Folios help reduce the drain on your earnings from fees, trading commissions, and capital gains taxes.
  • Folios, in contrast to mutual funds, provide advisors and their clients transparency and control over the securities their money is invested in.

In short, Folio Institutional was founded to provide advisors and other professionals a platform for them to deliver a better way to invest.
