Porter White Investment Advisors, Inc. (Registered Investment Adviser) and affiliated companies (together, “PW&Co”) have a business continuity plan to deal with a significant business disruption caused by fire, storm or other disaster and to re-establish communications with clients in the event of such a disruption.
The securities of investment advisory clients are held in client controlled accounts at National Financial Services, LLC, a Fidelity Investments Company, which has a robust business continuity plan, or in special cases at other institutions under agreements between clients and such other institutions. Investment advisory clients may contact Fidelity or such other institutions directly concerning their accounts. No financial assets are held directly by PW&Co.
PW&Co financial and most other important records are copied or backed up electronically and stored on an alternative computer server and in a bank vault, both off site.
In the event of a disruption of service at our principal office, plans have been made to transfer our main telephone line to a telephone at another location. We are advised that this may require a day to accomplish. In the meantime, you may contact us at 205-835-5269, 205-566-7504, or 205-616-1044, which are cell telephone numbers that should continue to work.
Our web site is hosted at another location which should remain operational. We will post current information on our web site regarding our operations and the status of our recovery.
Our email exchange is also hosted at a separate location and we should be able to respond to email inquiries in the event of a disaster at our main office.
If you have questions concerning the foregoing, please call 205-252-3681.
