Clearing services through Pershing, LLC
Nationwide Planning client accounts are held by Pershing, LLC (unless funds are held by a third party provider). Pershing, a leading global provider of financial business solutions for 70 years, was named the #1 clearing house in the industry in 2008, by Investment News. In addition to SIPC protection, accounts held at Pershing have coverage in excess of SIPC limits through Lloyd’s of London. Pershing’s parent company, the Bank of New York Mellon has $22.1 trillion in assets under custody or administration and $966 billion under management (as reported 1/2010).
Our relationship with Pershing offers you access to NetX360, Pershing’s revolutionary technology platform providing the tools needed to manage clients’ accounts, deliver first-rate service, and develop new sales and revenue opportunities whether commission or fee-based.
Product due Diligence Services
Rather than a “one-size-fits-all” philosophy that permeates the product offerings of many large firms, Nationwide Planning offers our advisors a full suite of investment and financial planning products. We focus our due diligence toward determining which products are “best-in-class,” rather than limiting your choices to a handful of preferred partners so advisors are well-equipped for any client need.
Product Expertise & Trade Processing
Through years of experience, our Operations Support Team has acquired exceptional knowledge and expertise on the wide range of products available to our advisors. Our capabilities are in the most demanding arenas – from basic mutual fund and equity trading products to fixed income and advanced cash management services. Our Operations Support Team also offers trade processing services for our financial advisors and their clients.
