Important Information You Need to Know About Onboarding

U.S.A. PATRIOT ACT

In order to help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, U.S. federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person or entity that opens an account. In addition to asking you for your name and address and other identifying information, NPM Securities, LLC (“the Firm”) may also request other identifying information and documentation.

BUSINESS CONTINUITY STATEMENT

The Firm has created a Business Continuity Plan (“BCP”) that provides for the Firm to continue its services to its customers and subscribers within a reasonable amount of time, given the scope and severity of a significant business disruption (“SBD”).

The BCP anticipates responding to both internal and external SBDs.  An internal SBD, such as the loss of our telephone system, affects only the Firm.   The Firm will respond to internal SBDs by re-routing calls to secondary numbers, and/or relocating its primary office to a secondary location, and/or, recovering data from a back-up storage media and/or a back-up site.  The Firm expects to recover from an internal SBD within one hour.

An external SBD, such as a power outage or flood, affects multiple businesses and can be local, regional, national, or global.   The Firm’s response to an external SBD relies more heavily on other organizations.  The Firm expects to recover from an external SBD within six hours. 

In the event a SBD prevents customers or subscribers from contacting the Firm through their usual methods, the following alternative methods can be utilized:

Operations Team Contact Number: (+1) 646-968-7040
Operations Email: operations@npm.com
Legal Team Contact Number: (+1) 646-968-7039
Legal Team Email: legal@npm.com

If a SBD disrupts both the primary and secondary methods of contacting the Firm will, to the best of its ability, provide alternative contact information on our website.   

The Firm does not receive, acquire, hold or maintain funds or securities for its customers or the customers of its subscribers.  All notification requirements pertaining to the accessing of such funds and securities are the responsibility of the bank or broker/dealer with which the customer or subscriber maintains a securities account.

While no contingency plan can eliminate all risk of service interruption or temporarily impeded account access, the Firm continually assesses and updates its BCP to mitigate all reasonable risk.

This disclosure is subject to modification.
