Our Wealth Management Partner, Avantax, is Financially Strong Amid Coronavirus Crisis

| February 24, 2022

In these uncertain times, I’m writing to let you know that our wealth management partner, Avantax Wealth Management℠, is operationally and financially strong and secure, and their support of us hasn’t skipped a beat during the coronavirus pandemic. Avantax stands by our side, and yours, as we help you make informed financial decisions in these extraordinary times.

To help keep everyone healthy and available, nearly all Avantax employees are working from home. Avantax was able to quickly adopt a remote-work policy, thanks to their comprehensive business continuity plan, which was in place long before the coronavirus outbreak.

Nearly all the technology Avantax uses to support us is cloud-based, meaning it’s designed to be used remotely. For this reason, we are following the same processes we always have, and Avantax teams stand ready to provide whatever support we need in our service to you.

Equally important, Avantax and its clearing firm, National Financial Services LLC, a broker-dealer affiliate of Fidelity Investments® are in close contact to ensure that our clients’ transactional needs are met without interruption.

There is great uncertainty about the coronavirus and its impact on the markets and the economy overall, but we are unshakably confident about a recovery. We know we will come through this together.

During these turbulent times, we ask you to rely on us more than ever because we have your best long-term financial interests at heart. We’re here to support you through this crisis, and the much better times we know are ahead.

If we haven’t already spoken with you directly, we will soon; in the meantime, please don’t hesitate to call us with any questions, concerns or needs.
