Business Continuity Plan
Verity Asset Management maintains a plan designed to assure continuation of business in the event of disruptions of varying severity. Client account records are maintained by the issuers (such as the respective mutual fund companies, annuity companies, etc.), and/or custodians. Thus, account records and customer funds should be accessible in the normal manner from those sources. All internal electronic records, including financial records, are backed up in a secure manner off-site.
Should any disruption occur, whether it is confined to our home office or is citywide or regional in scope, Verity intends to resume operations within twenty four hours. Inbound phone lines will be forwarded to alternate numbers, and email correspondence will be monitored from an alternate location. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Updated status and contact information will be posted on our web site at verityinvest.com. Updates to this summary will be posted on our web site and are available by mail upon request.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, neither party shall be held responsible for the delay or failure to perform services or obligations under this Agreement when such delay or failure is due to fire, flood, epidemic, strikes, acts of God or any public enemy, unusually severe weather, failure or malfunction of any electronic, electric or mechanical equipment, legislative or regulatory acts of any public authority, delays or defaults caused by any public carriers, or other circumstances which cannot reasonably be forecast or provided against.
