Collabria Capital does not take custody of client assets. We simply advise on client accounts, place trades and request changes on their behalf. Our custodian is responsible for holding client assets, providing statements, tax documents, and online access.
A custodian is a financial institution that holds customers’ securities for safekeeping in order to minimize the risk of their theft or loss. A custodian holds securities and other assets in electronic or physical form. Since they are responsible for the safety of assets and securities that may be worth hundreds of millions or even billions of dollars, custodians generally tend to be large and reputable firms. A custodian is sometimes referred to as a “custodian bank.”
In addition, the custodian provides protection for cash and client securities in client accounts. This protection is in addition to that provided by the Securities Investor Protection Corporation (www.sipc.org ). This protects clients from potential losses resulting from a custodian’s potential insolvency or liquidation but does not protect against a decline in the market value of securities.
