Core Investment Policy Statement
Account Aggregation and Online Credentials
Certain account aggregation and investment management systems offered by Anglia Advisors to some of its clients may allow them to view their account statements from various financial institutions such as banks or credit unions, investment account custodians, retirement account providers, student loan providers in one place or allow advisor limited, partial access to investment and/or retirement accounts to conduct risk analysis or make certain allocation changes.
In many cases, this requires the client to enter the account's online credentials to effect real-time access to the account data. These online credentials are never made available to, held or stored by Anglia Advisors.
In the case of aggregators, they simply gather existing data from a variety of sources and will let clients see it via a convenient portal. Anglia Advisors is not affiliated with any account aggregator and does not receive any type of fee or other consideration from the provider if you sign up for account aggregation, although a fee may be optionally assessed to the client by Anglia Advisors for access to the portal.
Before you decide to use an account aggregator, you should understand what it does and does not do. An account aggregator assembles data from various sources, and the information it gathers may include some data about historical account performance, but an account aggregator is not an investment performance reporting tool. The data it passes on to you may not have been verified by the account aggregator provider nor by Anglia Advisors.
Clients should always review their official account statements, and not consider any consolidated report such as that available through an account aggregator or any similar service to be a substitute for your actual account statement.
In the case of investment management, risk analysis of accounts or student loan repayment analysis, this usually works by you allowing limited, partial access to your account by using your unique login and password. Once again, these online credentials are never made available to, held or stored by Anglia Advisors.
Your financial institution may or may not be able tell the difference between you and any third party that logs in with your access information. You should review your account agreement with each financial institution to determine if providing your account access information to a third party violates your account agreement. Your financial institution may also reserve the right, at its discretion, to decline to recognize this discretion over your account.
Additionally, advisor or aggregator access to the account may be limited or blocked from time to time by internal security protocols established by the institution (such as requiring password changes, answers to security questions, texting or emailing of verification codes/tokens etc.). In many cases, this may require re-entry of the online credentials by the client into the third-party system. In some cases however, our third party partners may have the technology to allow continued access by the advisor with the client granting permissions in advance, so that the client does not need to keep having to assist advisor sign on through communication or entry of this supplemental data.
Anglia Advisors has no control over the security practices or current or future privacy policies of these aggregation or investment management service providers and will assume no responsibility for any damages (financial loss, ID theft or any other damage) resulting from their use. While Anglia Advisors has reason to believe in the quality of such services, we cannot be held liable in any way for the services or security/privacy procedures offered by these third party providers.
