An independent custodian works for the benefit of both the client and the Registered Investment Advisor (RIA). The custodian serves the client by providing third party, independent information regarding positions and transactions in a client’s account.
Our custodians provide Benemark access to a wide range of services that help us serve our clients, including:
- Full range of investment products and trading services
- Wide array of investment account types including retirement accounts, charitable giving, and education accounts
- Full range of investment options such as stocks, mutual funds, bonds, exchange traded funds, CDs and other investments
- Technology and service support so investors can access all their accounts online and view positions, balances and account histories in one place.
Observing our commitment to you, we offer the following brokerages as the custodians for your assets.
