FBN has developed a Business Continuity Plan on how we will respond to events that significantly disrupt our business. Since the timing and impact of disasters and disruptions are unpredictable, we will have to be flexible in responding to actual events as they occur. With that in mind, we are providing you with this information on our business continuity plan.

As an introducing broker, FBN does not perform clearing functions nor maintain custody of customer securities or funds. Pershing LLC acts as our clearing agent and has the responsibility of clearing and settling all of our transactions. To view Pershing’s business continuity plan please visit:
