Safeguarding Your of Assets in Uncertain Times
Let’s face the reality, there continues to be volatility in global markets. Investors want assurance that their assets are held in safekeeping. We understand this and have established institutional relationships with major custody and clearing firms in the market today. We have chosen to have relationships with safe and sound institutions such as Charles Schwab & Co., Fidelity Investments and Millennium Trust Company. Also, our clients have the options to leave their assets with another custodian, and we have the ability to provide daily reporting on those assets as well.
Custody: A Frequently Overlooked Consideration
Securing Your Assets. Increasing Your Control. Restoring Your Confidence.
You’ve worked hard to accumulate assets, and the last thing you want to worry about is whether they’re secure. With Ethos, you don’t have to.
Very few firms every talk about the custody or safekeeping of client assets. Why is that? They like being their own custodian. In that situation, your assets are typically co-mingled with other assets in their investing pool.
However, at Ethos, each client maintains fully disclosed accounts at a third party custodian. This eliminates inherent conflicts of interest and adds a higher level of clarity and transparency to our relationship. Your assets can be viewed at anytime, from anywhere from any device with a few clicks.
At Ethos, we have partnered with safe and sound independent custodians who are all members of the Securities Investor Protection Corporation (SIPC). Conflicts of interest are eliminated and the security of your assets assured.
Securities in client accounts are protected in accordance with the Securities Investor Protection Corporation (“SIPC”) up to $500,000 (including up to $100,000 for cash awaiting reinvestment). NFS also has arranged for coverage above these limits. Neither coverage protects against a decline in the market value of securities, nor does either coverage extend to certain securities that are considered ineligible for coverage.
