Business Continuity

Performance Trust Capital Partners, LLC has a Business Continuity Plan (BCP) in place, including redundant data centers and alternate processing facilities, to address interruptions to our normal course of business. The plans are reviewed annually and updated as necessary. Our plans outline the actions Performance Trust Capital Partners, LLC will take in the event of a significant business disruption ranging in severity from a firm only disruption to a regional disruption, including relocating technology and operational personnel to pre-assigned alternate regional facilities. Technology data processing can also be switched to an alternate regional data center.

Performance Trust Capital Partners, LLC's redundancy technology facilities are equipped for resumption of business and are tested annually. Our recovery time objective for business resumption, including those involving a relocation of personnel or technology, is up to eight hours. This recovery objective may be negatively affected by the availability of external resources and circumstances beyond our control.

Performance Trust Capital Partners, LLC maintain relationships with its clearing firm, Pershing. We fully introduce your accounts to Pershing as it maintains your assets and settles your transactions on your behalf. In the event of a regional catastrophic event including, but not limited to a natural disaster, terrorist attack, or other severe failure where Performance Trust Capital Partners, LLC can no longer conduct business, Pershing may be contracted directly to process limited trade-related transactions, cash disbursements, and security transfers.
