Business Continuity Planning
Nancy Barron & Associates (NBA) has developed a Business Continuity Plan on how we will respond to events (ice storms, fire, terrorism, etc.) 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 on our business continuity plan.
Contacting Us - If after a significant business disruption you cannot contact us as you usually do at 859-254-4010 toll free, you should first go to our web site at www.nancybarron.com and check for any current postings that would be found on the home page. If you cannot access us through any of those means, you should contact our clearing firm, National Financial Services, LLC (NFS), at 800-801-9942 for instructions on how it may provide prompt access to funds and securities, enter orders and process other trade-related, cash, and security transfer transactions for you. However, please note that if we are still in operation, calls to this line will be automatically directed to us at NBA.
Our Business Continuity Plan - We plan to quickly recover and resume business operations after a significant business disruption and respond by safeguarding our employees and property, making a financial and operational assessment, protecting the firm's books and records, and allowing our customers to transact business. In short, our business continuity plan is designed to permit our firm to resume operations as quickly as possible, given the scope and severity of the significant business disruption.
Our business continuity plan addresses: data back up and recovery; all mission critical systems; financial and operational assessments; alternative communications with customers, employees, and regulators; alternate physical location of employees; critical supplier, contractor, bank and counter-party impact; regulatory reporting; and assuring our customers prompt access to their funds and securities if we are unable to continue our business.
