Business Continuity Planning
DC Advisory US has developed a Business Continuity Plan setting forth how we will respond to events that significantly disrupt our business. Since the timing and impact of disasters and disruptions is 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 about our business continuity plan.
Contacting Us – If after a significant business disruption you cannot contact us as you usually do, you should call our alternative number (202-908-4000), consult our web site at www.dcadvisory.com for any relevant alternative contact information, and monitor your voice mail and e-mail for communications from us.
Business Continuity Plan
Our business continuity plan addresses: data backup and recovery; all mission critical systems; financial and operational assessments; alternative means of communications with customers, employees, and regulators; alternate physical location of employees; critical supplier, contractor, bank and counter-party impact; and regulatory reporting. Depending on the nature of the business disruption, the Firm may leverage both alternative locations and virtual or “at home” resources. The Firm does not hold any customer funds or securities.
We plan to quickly recover and resume business operations after a significant business disruption and respond by safeguarding our employees and property, making a financial and operational assessment, protecting the firm’s books and records, and allowing our customers to transact business. In short, our business continuity plan is designed to permit our firm to resume operations as quickly as possible, given the scope and severity of the significant business disruption.
The DC Advisory Business Continuity Plan is reviewed periodically and subject to change without notice. If you have any questions about our Business Continuity Plan, please contact us at DC Advisory, 605 Third Avenue, 11th Floor, New York, NY 10158 Attn: Compliance Department
In accordance with Exchange Act Rule 17a-3(a)(18)(ii), we are furnishing this statement to provide you with a name, telephone number and address, if you ever need to report or notify us of a possible complaint.
