Safety of Your Assets

Who your advisor uses to custody your investments is a critical factor, in determining the level of service, support & protection you can expect.

Strategic Partner

Milestone Asset Management Group has established strategic relationships with industry leaders in order to provide our clients with the most comprehensive investment management services available. As your financial advisor, we’re expected to make decisions about your money based on the highest degree of scrutiny. You can be assured that we use the same approach when choosing the service providers we employ to help you meet your financial objectives. This is why we’ve selected Fidelity Investments® (“Fidelity”) as our custodian.

 

What Is a Custodian?

A custodian is a financial institution that has legal responsibility for a customer’s securities. Custodianship includes management as well as safekeeping, and this service incurs additional fees. Our firm, like all investment managers, is required to have a custodian. Investments that you entrust to our firm are placed in custody with Fidelity’s clearing firm, National Financial Services LLC (NFS) — one of the largest clearing providers in the industry. A clearing firm is an organization that works with financial exchanges to handle the confirmation, delivery, and settlement of transactions.

When you’re selecting your financial advisor, considering who your advisor uses to custody your investments can be a critical factor, as this will help determine the level of service, support, and protection you can expect from your financial advisor.
