This may include some nonpublic information. Information will be limited to only that which is required by the broker. These firms are also subject to Rule S-P. In some cases, the brokers may disclose information about a client’s holdings to investment firms (i.e. mutual funds). Clients must either give permission with their initials for this to occur or they may opt out of this with a like notation. The firm advises clients to opt out of the release of this information.
