Why SSG

Shareholders Service Group (SSG) specializes in meeting the unique investment and technology needs of independent investment advisors and their clients. Formed in 2002, SSG offers brokerage services with extensive account insurance, a wide variety of investment options, competitive technology and an experienced team committed to providing excellent personal service.

Accounts SIPC Insured

As a member of SIPC, SSG provides account protection up to $500,000, including $250,000 for claims of cash. Additional insurance is included through Lloyd’s of London. This provides excess account protection up to an aggregate limit of $1 billion, of which $1.9 million may cover cash awaiting reinvestment at the individual account level. This amount in excess account protection is the highest level of brokerage account insurance coverage available in the industry today.

Clearing and Custody

SSG has chosen Pershing LLC, a subsidiary of The Bank of New York Mellon, for securities clearing and custody. BNY Mellon is the world’s largest custodian with over $27 trillion in assets under custody. Shareholders Service Group holds client accounts and processes securities transactions under a fully-disclosed clearing agreement at Pershing. That means your assets are safeguarded by one of the oldest custodians in the world. Since 1939, Pershing has provided brokerage execution, trade clearance, securities data processing and investment access to registered broker/dealers. Pershing is a member of the NYSE, FINRA and SIPC, and its international affiliates are members of the Frankfurt, Irish and London stock exchanges. With over six million accounts and more than $1.5 trillion in client assets, Pershing is the largest securities clearing firm in North America and has extensive financial resources.

RIA that Opened a New Firm

I am very pleased that I found SSG when I was selecting a custodian. Even when my practice was newly established and I was just beginning to build my AUM, the staff at SSG gave me very personalized service and attention. As my practice has grown and the custody services have become more complex, I’ve found that the superb service is matched by the depth of expertise. The hallmark of the service that SSG provides is that SSG actually cares about helping us as advisors succeed in providing great service to our clients.
