VIENNA, Virginia, May 13, 2008 – FOLIOfn Investments, Inc., the innovative online securities firm, announced that Greg Vigrass, President of FOLIOfn Institutional, will give a presentation at The Money Show today in Las Vegas. About 10,000 financial professionals and investors from all over the country are expected to attend this major investment forum, which will be held at the Mandalay Bay Hotel.

FOLIOfn, voted “Best of the Web for Alternative Investing” by Forbes.com, enables investors to create and manage portfolios, called Folios, of up to 100 securities each with just a few clicks of a mouse. A Folio is much like a personalized mutual fund or Exchange Traded Fund (ETF). With FOLIO Investing®, individual investors can affordably purchase entire portfolios of securities that allow the diversification of mutual funds with the cost, control, and tax benefits of owning individual securities.
The unique, patented FOLIO Investing platform offers distinct benefits for investors: diversification, customization, low cost, tax efficiency, performance measurement, and a FOLIO wizard to help investors decide what to select. For only $29 per month—or $290 for an entire year—self-directed investors get unlimited portfolios, unlimited accounts, and unlimited commission-free trades. Investors can create their own Folios or select from over 100 Ready–to–Go (RTG) Folios®, based on various target dates, indices, geographies, sectors, themes, and styles. In addition, FOLIOfn recently launched conservative, moderate and aggressive target-date Folios, which were cited in the Wall Street Journal (12/27/07) as one solution to the problem of “one-size-fits-all” target-date funds.
FOLIOfn Institutional’s proprietary FOLIO trading platform offers financial advisors a unique advantage in the investment business (www.folioadvisor.com). This easy-to-use, web-based investing system allows users to customize portfolios of securities, which they can buy or sell in a single transaction. Financial institutions can easily create and update actively managed model portfolios for thousands of accounts.
“Folios are the next-generation offering after mutual funds and unparalleled in what they offer investors,” summarized Steven M.H. Wallman, founder and CEO of FOLIOfn. Folios differ from mutual funds, in that they are not registered investment companies and are managed by the individual owner or investment advisor.
