About Martello Investments, LLC

Martello Investments is an investment advisor based in Norfolk, Virginia. We are a fee-only advisor and a fiduciary with an honest mission: to build better investment portfolios for our clients. We offer private wealth management services to individuals, institutional investors, companies, and trusts. Our strategies combine low-cost exchange-traded funds with advanced technology and active management designed to intelligently manage investor capital.

We understand that there is no "one size fits all" investment approach, and that every investor has unique goals. We also know that you want more than just portfolio management from your advisor and that your portfolio is more than just a collection of investments. An investment portfolio represents a lifetime of hard work, dreams for the future, and financial security. We strive to help clients reach their many goals. We value our personal relationships with investors, and strive to provide transparency, liquidity, competitive fees, and our constant availability and attention.

Choosing a financial advisor doesn't have to be stressful. If you're interested in learning more about us, give us a call to set up a no-pressure, free consultation.

  • Do you have a customer satisfaction or refund policy? We encourage all of our clients to send us any and all feedback so we can be sure we deliver the best client experience possible. While we completely stand behind our investment results, we do not offer refunds on our investment management services.
  • What services do you provide? What are your specialties? With Martello Investments, our team provides you with the individual attention you deserve. We specialize in algorithmic investment strategies that are designed to remove the emotion from investing while being adaptive and responsive enough to limit (but not eliminate) investment losses.
  • What is your experience? How many clients do you currently manage? Our team has extensive experience in the investment industry. Artie is a Chartered Financial Analyst® charterholder and Charlie is a CIPM® certificant. Both Artie and Charlie worked a combined 20 years in institutional pension consulting prior to starting Martello. In that business, Artie and Charlie helped design and implement asset allocations and investment strategies for Fortune 500 companies, nonprofits, and trusts.
  • What financial institution(s) do you represent? We do not represent any financial institutions. We are an independent registered investment advisor.
  • How do you charge for your services? We generally charge a management fee based on your account value. Typically, our management fee is 1.0% per year. We also focus on minimizing the "hidden fees" charged to your portfolio; our preferred custodian does not charge account custody fees and we utilize low-cost exchange traded funds in our strategies.
