Our Business Continuity Plan – We plan to quickly recover and resume business operations after a significant business disruption and respond by safeguarding our employees and property, making a financial and operational assessment, protecting the firm’s books and records, and allowing our customers to transact business. In short, our business continuity plan is designed to permit our firm to resume operations as quickly as possible, given the scope and severity of the significant business disruption. Our business continuity plan addresses the following: data backup and recovery; all mission critical systems; financial and operational assessments; alternative communications with customers, employees and regulators; alternate physical locations of employees; critical suppliers, contractors, banks and counterparty impact; regulatory reporting; and assuring our customers’ prompt access to their funds and securities if we are unable to continue our business. Our clearing firm, Pershing, backs up our important records in a geographically separate area. While every emergency situation poses unique problems based on external factors, such as time of day and the severity of the disruption, we have been advised by our clearing firm that its objective is to quickly restore its own operations and be able to complete existing transactions and accept new transactions and payments. Your orders and requests for funds and securities could be delayed during the restoration period.
Varying Disruptions – Significant business disruptions can vary in their scope, including the business district, the city or the entire region where one or more of our offices are located. Within each of these areas, the severity of the disruption also can vary from minimal to severe. In the event of a disruption to one or more of our offices, we will transfer our operations to an appropriate site when needed, and expect to recover and resume business within 24 hours. In the event of a disruption affecting a larger area, we will transfer our operations to a site outside of the affected area when needed, and expect to recover and resume business within 48 hours. In either situation, we plan to continue doing business, transferring operations to our clearing firm if necessary, and notify you through our website, www.mbssecurities.com, or through our customer emergency number, (800) 967-5094, on how to contact us. If the significant business disruption is so severe that it prevents us from remaining in business, we will assure our customers’ prompt access to their funds and securities.
