  • Ensure you understand and are comfortable with all strategies, investments, risks, costs and fees associated with your accounts.
  • Immediately notify us of any changes in your financial situation, and of major life-events such as divorce, loss of a loved one, loss of a job, or other significant occurrence.
  • Be honest with your advisor about any accounts or investments you have with another firm, or that you personally manage.
  • Read all sales literature and prospectuses provided to you.
  • Keep yourself informed about important financial issues and discuss these with your advisor
  • Let us know if we fail to meet your expectations in any way, or if you don’t understand or agree with any actions we take.
