What is a Custodian and What is a Clearing Firm? 
A custodian is a financial institutional that has certain regulatory responsibilities for assets in a client's brokerage account.  A clearing firm is an organization that, among other things, handles the execution, clearance, and settlement of transactions.

Our firm, as an affiliate of Consulting Services Support Corporation and its subsidiaries is required to have a custodian and clearing firm for our clients.  CSSC has selected Pershing and/or Fidelity as possible custodians for the investments that you have entrusted to our firm.  Pershing LLC and Fidelity's clearing firm, National Financial Services, LLC (NFS) - are two of the largest clearing providers in the industry.


Who is Pershing?** With almost 75 experience, Pershing LLC, a BNY Mellon company, is a leading global provider of financial business solutions. A member of NYSE, FINRA® and SIPC®, Pershing has over $1 trillion in global client assets*.

What does Pershing do for me? Pershing works behind the scenes and acts in a custodial capacity, safeguarding your financial assets.
