How to Read Your Statement
A custodian is a financial institution that has legal responsibility for a customer’s securities. Custodianship includes asset management, as well as safekeeping.
Resource Financial Group, like all Wealth Management firms, 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.
