As an independent hybrid RIA firm registered with the SEC, Financial Management, Inc. uses a variety of custodians to hold, safeguard, and maintain accounts for their clients. These custodians vary in their services and niches, but mostly perform functions such as trading, tax reporting, client statements, online access, distributions and other administrative services. Financial Management, Inc. clients receive a client statement from the custodians that hold their accounts and all financial transactions run through the custodian, rather than Financial Management, Inc. holding their client’s money in a Financial Management, Inc. account. We manage the portfolios, and the custodians perform the administrative tasks and maintain the funds in your accounts.
