To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, Federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account. What this means for you: When you open an account, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see your driver’s license or other identifying documents.
WF is committed to protecting the interests of clients at all times. Because WF uses the Information Technology services and the physical office locations of its affiliate Wedbush Securities, Inc., WF has adopted Wedbush Securities, Inc.’s plan to provide for business continuity (Continuity Plan) in the event that business is disrupted. The Continuity Plan addresses all critical business processes, including providing clients with the ability to buy and/or sell and providing access to securities and funds.
The Continuity Plan addresses interruptions that are either localized or regional in scope, whether short or long term, regardless of the cause. The Continuity Plan is reviewed and tested annually and has been approved by senior management.
Should a disruption occur at our headquarters in Chicago, Illinois, some operational functions may be temporarily disrupted while staff relocate to predetermined alternative sites.
Wedbush has Information Technology services that are housed and operate concurrently in dual, geographically disperse sites. Either site is capable of supporting all critical functions should one site be disabled. Information is also backed up and stored at a third location at predetermined intervals. Any business disruption at Wedbush will not result in the loss of your account information, securities or money.
Your account information and transaction history are also stored at our data processing provider that has its own business continuity plan that is regularly tested. Your securities and funds are held at banks, custodians and other providers of services to the securities industry that each have their own successfully tested business continuity capabilities. These facilities are all located remotely from Wedbush’s corporate data processing sites.
In the event that a disruption occurs that affects Wedbush, relevant information, including contact information, will be prominently displayed on the website.
