As an SEC-registered investment advisor, Albert Investments, LLC is mandated to send relevant tax documents to every investor. Keep these documents in a safe place, as you may need to disclose your investments on your taxes.
As Albert does not provide tax advice or guidance, it's a good idea to consult your accountant (or whoever prepares your tax return) if you have any questions about reporting investments on your taxes.
These are documents sent at month's end. They provide an overview of your trades and withdrawals, as well as your most recent account balance.

Your proxy vote is not mandatory.
Prospectus documents are provided when you make an initial investment in stocks, bonds and other securities.
