Old North State Trust, LLC takes seriously our responsibility to keep the information you provide to us in the strictest confidence. Federal privacy laws regulate what investment advisors are allowed to do with the confidential personal information that they collect in connection with their financial service activities. Our standards have always been in the interest of protecting our clients’ confidentiality.
Old North State Trust may obtain nonpublic personal information about your family and business, assets, income and expenditures, risk tolerance, estate, insurance coverage or other personal information in the course of providing the advisory services for which you have engaged the firm.
This information may come from account forms, investor profiles, tax or legal documents that you provide to us or that you authorize us to obtain from others. Information may also come from discussions with you or with others that you authorize. We only collect information which is necessary to manage your accounts, abide by all laws and regulations, and review and develop new services and products that may be of benefit to you.
Old North State Trust uses the information responsibly so that your privacy is protected. We do not disclose any nonpublic personal information about our current or former clients to anyone, except as required by law or per the client’s authorization. We do not participate in releasing this nonpublic information to other entities for independent telemarketing, direct mail or any other purpose.
Access to nonpublic personal information about our clients is restricted to those professionals and staff who need to know such data in order to provide financial services on that account. Strict internal company policies and an employee conduct code ensure that your personal and financial information will be protected. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to comply with federal regulations and professional requirements in order to preserve the confidentiality of your personal information.
In order to help fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, Federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify and record information that identifies each person who opens an account. What this means for you: when you open an account, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see your driver’s license or other identifying document.
Old North State Trust maintains a policy to ensure that we appropriately deal with alternative forms of remuneration. This policy seeks to ensure that our accounts are dealt with in an equitable manner and that all applicable regulations are adhered to. In the course of normal transactions, we receive due diligence and marketing allowance payments from certain alternative investment sponsors. If you would like a list of these companies, one can be provided to you at no cost.
Thank you for your trust.
