At Nationwide Planning the safety of our clients' assets is our #1 priority, so we selected Pershing LLC – a subsidiary of The Bank of New York Mellon as our custodian for client brokerage account assets. 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. Consider some of the many advantages:
