Welcome to Alto, we're so glad you're here!
To start investing on One Thousand Angels you will first need to create your new Alto IRA account at Altoira.com. From there you'll be ready to set up and fund your Alto IRA, and add a credit card for fees! To learn more about our fees, please check out our pricing page.
Funding your IRA depends on your transferring Custodian's processing time and can take anywhere from 2 business days to 2 weeks. We recommend calling your Custodian after you receive notification from Alto that your request has been submitted and requesting an "expedited transfer." In the meantime, you can commit to your investment on One Thousand Angels following the steps below:
1) After being approved as a member, login to https://1000angels.com/ and locate your investment opportunity on the home page:
2) Clicking into an investment opportunity will direct you to to review its executive summary, market opportunity, return calculator, founder interview, and other useful information:
3) After reviewing related documents and evaluating your own investment criteria, you can apply to invest by entering your desired investment amount and clicking "Submit Investment":
4) You will be contacted by a member of One Thousand Angel's team to specify AltoIRA as your funding source. Once One Thousand Angels processes your commitment, you will receive an email from Alto inviting you to approve your IRA's investment. For instructions on accepting that invitation, check out our walkthrough here. If you run into any snags or have questions, please feel free to contact our support team at firstname.lastname@example.org and (877) 673-1557.
