Business Continuity Plan

Kingwest & Company has developed a Business Continuity Plan to respond to events that significantly disrupt our business. Since the timing and impact of disasters and disruptions is unpredictable, we will have to be flexible in responding to actual events as they occur. With that in mind, we are providing you with this information.

 

Our priorities after a significant business disruption are to allow our clients to transact business, recover and resume business operations, safeguard our employees and property, make a financial and operational assessment, and protect the firm’s books and records. We will strive to resume operations as quickly as possible, given the scope and severity of the significant business disruption. if the significant business disruption is so severe that it prevents us from remaining in business, we will assure our clients prompt access to their funds and securities through the facilities of NBCN and other client custodial agents.

 

Our Business Continuity Plan addresses: data back up and recover; all mission critical systems; financial and operational assessments alternative communications with customers, employees, and regulators; alternate physical location of employees’ critical suppliers, bank, and counter-party impact; regulatory reporting; and assuring our clients prompt access to their funds and securities if we are unable to continue our business.
