Personal Investment Management does not take possession (custody) of clients’ investment assets. Rather, clients’ assets are held at an independent, third-party qualified custodian. In order to access the client’s account(s) to facilitate management of their investment portfolio, PIM is granted a limited power of attorney by the client, as detailed in our Investment Advisory Agreement.
In the event of a business disruption at PIM, clients may access their funds or securities by contacting the independent custodian of their account directly.
For most non-employer-sponsored retirement plan accounts (taxable investment accounts, trust accounts, personal retirement accounts), PIM clients’ assets are held in accounts at Charles Schwab & Co. Schwab is the market leader in providing services to independent Registered Investment Advisor firms such as PIM, and their clients.
