Working With An Advisor

Providing a proper investment environment is a priority for The Investment Center, Inc.

A Few Important Rules to Follow

  • The Investment Center advisors are required to place securities investments through Pershing LLC or directly with a mutual fund, insurance company, or product provider.  Do not make checks payable directly to a financial advisor, the financial advisor's business name, or any business controlled by the financial advisor.
  • When dealing with a representative of The Investment Center, Inc., accept account payments from Pershing LLC or the product provider only. Payment from any other business names or the representative is not appropriate.
  • You should never borrow from or lend money to a representative of The Investment Center, Inc.
  • Always sign your own documents and never ask someone else to sign for you unless they can legally act for you, e.g. via power of attorney.
  • Review your statements when you receive them. If you receive a summary statement from your financial advisor, compare the statement numbers to your statements from each product provider or an official Pershing LLC account statement.
