Business Continuity

 

Bellwether Capital Management LLC’s (BCM) policy is to respond to a Significant Business Disruption (SBD) by safeguarding client assets, protecting all of the firm’s books and records, and quickly recovering in order to resume business operations.  In the event that BCM is unable to continue operations, BCM’s priority is clients’ prompt access to their funds and securities. The timing and impact of disasters and disruptions are unpredictable, so BCM will need to be flexible in responding to actual events as they occur. BCM is providing this information about its business continuity plan. 
 
BCM’s business continuity plan addresses: data backup and recovery; mission critical systems; financial and operational assessments; alternative communications with customers, employees, and regulators; alternate physical location of operations; critical third-party impact; regulatory reporting; and assuring clients' prompt access to their funds and securities if BCM is unable to continue operations. BCM’s custodial firm(s) back-up client account records in geographically separate areas. Every emergency situation poses unique problems based on external factors, such as time of day and the severity of the disruption, but BCM has been advised by its custodial firms that they will restore their own operations and be able to complete existing transactions and accept new transactions and payments as soon as possible. Client orders and requests for funds and securities could be delayed during this period.  Significant business disruptions can vary in their scopes, such as only BCM, a single building housing BCM, the business district where BCM is located, the city, or the whole region. Within each of these areas, the severity of the disruption can also vary from minimal to severe. In a disruption to only BCM or a building housing BCM, BCM will move operations to a local site when needed and expects to recover and resume operations within 24 hours. In a disruption affecting the business district, city, or region, BCM will transfer operations to a site outside of the affected area, and recover and resume business within 48 hours. In either situation, BCM plans to continue in business, transfer operations to custodians if necessary, and notify you through BCM's website on how to contact BCM. If the significant business disruption is so severe that it prevents BCM from continuing operations, clients may access their funds and securities directly from account custodians. If after a significant business disruption clients cannot contact BCM through phone, fax, or email, go to BCM’s website bellwethercm.com for instructions, if possible. If BCM cannot be contacted by those means, then contact the account custodian listed on account statements for instructions on how to access funds and securities, enter orders, retrieve account information, or make account changes. Contact BCM with questions about its Business Continuity Plan.
