As a part of our wealth planning services, Trilogy Wealth Advisors directs the placement of customer investment assets, however, we do not actually CUSTODY, or hold, those investment dollars. Your assets are invested in one of two places – either at a CLEARING FIRM (Schwab, Bear Stearns, Pershing) or directly with the FUND COMPANY (Templeton, Pacific Life, Putnam, etc.) Each of these entities insures client accounts against employee fraud or theft. In addition, Trilogy Wealth Advisors and Cambridge Investment Research, Inc. carry similar insurance to protect customers against fraud or theft. Additionally, every account is protected by SIPC for up to $500,000 ($100,000 cash) in the event of broker/dealer insolvency. As you know, none of these policies insure your account against market fluctuation or loss.
