June 25th marks our first anniversary. It seems as though it was just yesterday that I put my trust in you, my clients, and decided to take the leap of faith to start mFORCE Capital. I can say that with all its challenges, late nights, and unanticipated turns and twists, it has been worth it. My team has successfully transitioned more than 90% of the assets I managed while at Merrill Lynch.
I am especially grateful for every one of you that made this transition with me. Your loyalty has made this dream a reality and I can’t say “Thank you” enough. I know the move to independence will benefit each of you along the way as we move through life together. The move to partnered independence opened a vast network of resources. It is through these partnerships and resources that we will continue to offer enhanced investment solutions in both challenging and stable market conditions.
To my new mFORCE family members, I am thrilled that you joined us in our inaugural year. We have so much to offer you and my team looks forward to growing alongside you.
Our goal is to deliver honest, clear and concise information in a way that improves the quality of life for our clients. We will continue to provide impeccable service and objective, thoughtful advice along with best-in-class solutions.
I look forward to the coming year and all the successes it will bring. We are here to help you maneuver through life’s financial complexities and serve you in any way we can.
Thank you for placing your trust in us!
Registered Representative of Sanctuary Securities Inc. and Investment Advisor Representative of Sanctuary Advisors, LLC. Securities offered through Sanctuary Securities, Inc., Member FINRA, SIPC.

We felt that being an independent wealth management firm, we can be truly objective in our pursuit of the highest quality investment and financial solutions for you. Our independence will also heighten our ability to collaborate as we leverage advanced technology to provide improved access to planning and performance information, as well as investment research. Perhaps most importantly, we will have more control over the client-experience including fees, communication and service-delivery.
Key to our decision to be independent is our partnership with Sanctuary Wealth. Through its platform, Fjell Capital has access to outstanding back-office support, industry-leading resources, economies of scale, and best practices from a peer group of elite advisors who share our passion for serving clients.
* mFORCE Capital is a DBA of Sanctuary Securities, Inc. and Sanctuary Advisors, LLC; however, we own 100% of our independent firm. To provide our clients with the services we offer, we are Registered Representatives of Sanctuary Securities Inc. (Member FINRA, SIPC) and Investment Advisor Representatives of Sanctuary Advisors, LLC, an SEC Registered Investment Adviser.
First and foremost, you will benefit from the collaborative approach we take in helping you identify your values and pursue your goals and dreams.
Access to a Broader Marketplace: As an independent firm, we work in an open architecture that gives us access to the industry’s most advanced technologies and tools for planning and serving your accounts. We are not limited in the range or type of products we can source for you, from investments to insurance to banking.
Robust Planning Solutions: We will be using advanced planning software from eMoney. This tool has robust capabilities that will allow you, and our team, to view, in real time, your complete financial picture, including assets held at other firms. eMoney also has a secure, user-friendly “Vault” which enables you to safely store important documents, such as trusts, wills, tax filings, insurance documents, titles, etc. You will be able to choose to share the uploaded documents with our team, in cases where it is helpful for us to have access to them.
Exceptional Client Service: We are proactive in serving our clients, always focused on what lies ahead and how you can be best prepared. You will find we are responsive to all requests, with timely and friendly attention to your needs.
While we would have enjoyed the opportunity to share our plans with you in advance, legal considerations and contractual restrictions prevented us from doing so. We are committed to respecting and abiding by those covenants as investment professionals, even though it was personally challenging to not have the ability to speak with you beforehand. We hope you can appreciate the situation we were in.
We are able to leverage the technology, tools, and standardized processes available through Sanctuary Wealth that help maximize scalability and manage risk so that we can reinvest time where it matters most—with clients like you. By partnering with Sanctuary, we are able to deliver operational excellence, maintain a strong culture of compliance, and offer a robust cybersecurity program, which will safeguard the information clients entrust to our guidance. Sanctuary also empowers its partner firms with access to a vibrant community of like-minded, elite independent financial advisors. The advisors in this peer group share best practices and we can tap into our community’s intellectual capital to deliver more specialized expertise – and investment opportunities – to mFORCE Capital’s clients.
No, the fees we charge as your investment advisor will be the same as they are today. You will benefit from what our new firm can now access: best-in-class products, services, and technologies that weren’t available in our previous environment. In fact, you will be happy to know that, with our new custodian, there will be no transfer fees, ATM fees (at any ATM), or account maintenance fees.
Once you sign the account opening and transfer documents found in the welcome packet we send, we will submit a request to our prior firm to begin the transfer process. The transfer process usually takes 5 to 10 business days to complete, once submitted to the prior firm. We will monitor your accounts daily for progress and confirm once all assets have transitioned and are posted to your account at mFORCE Capital. Once your accounts have transferred, we will work with you to re-establish any recurring payments and other transfers you may currently have.
You will be able to view your assets by utilizing the Client Login section. Once you log in, you will have the same type of access to all of your accounts and the ability to utilize services as you had been accustomed to.
Our new office is located at:
1415 Ballinger St.
Fort Worth, TX 76102
Here is our updated contact information:
Wherever your mortgage is now, keep it there. If you want a new mortgage, we can negotiate competitive rates with various providers on your behalf. The same is true for your line of credit. We have partnered with several banks that will compete for your business resulting in favorable pricing for you.
You’re under no obligation to move your banking accounts as part of this transition. However, as we are now an independent team, we have the ability to go out in the marketplace on your behalf to identify comparable or better options than your current situation. We can advise you on what is the best banking relationship solution specifically for your needs – whether with a local, regional or national bank.
We have selected BNY Mellon Pershing as our custodian. Pershing is an industry leader in clearing and custody services with over $2.0 trillion in global client assets representing seven million investor accounts worldwide. Pershing is owned by BNY Mellon, which is the longest standing operating bank in the U.S., surpassing 235 years. With over $41 trillion in assets under custody, BNY Mellon is the largest custodian in the world by a significant margin.Pershing provides clearing and custody services in 65 global markets, with execution services in over 60 markets globally and facilitating the trading and conversion of 50 currencies.
The core strategies we use to manage your assets will not change, and of course, our investment management solutions are always specifically tailored to your risk parameters, timeline, and long-term objectives. What will improve, however, are certain capabilities, including our enhanced interactive financial planning, as well as broader access to more investment products and strategies, created by working in an open architecture environment.
The total process will take several weeks from the date you return our Welcome Packet transition paperwork to our team, and we will do everything we can to ensure the transition is a positive experience. We sincerely believe that the opportunity to retain a longstanding relationship with us – with our personal, proven commitment to your individual needs, combined with the newly available benefits of our independent firm – will outweigh any minor inconvenience posed by the transition itself.
