Please join us for an invitation-only webinar event:

Exclusive: DOL Update
Friday, October 7
11:30 a.m. ET / 8:30 a.m. PT
CLICK HERE to register now!

This summer we shared a DOL update at our Mastermind Collegium event and were overwhelmed with the positive feedback from our advisors for the direct and practical insights we shared. In recent months we have been leading the way in forging direct communications with both the DOL and SEC to get the answers needed for successful adaptation to this rule.

As one of the few IMOs who filed for the Financial Institution exemption, Clarity 2 Prosperity is committed to taking a leading role in helping advisors “DOL-proof” their sales process. As such, we’d like to invite you to a live webinar exclusively for our advisor partners to share our latest insights!

On this webinar we will:

  • Share the latest news and recent decisions and activity with the DOL and how this will impact C2P, PCA and you as an advisor
  • Provide updates to our planning process that have been implemented as a direct result of our presentations to the DOL and SEC
  • Answer your top questions

P.S. To begin providing proactive communications to your clients regarding this legislation, click here to download a template letter for your business use. We recommend sending this on your letterhead and through your email database as an opportunity to communicate the valuable service you are providing to American families!

PCA New Account Processing

Published September 26th, 2016 in News, Updates and Announcements | No Comments »

PCA Operations has recently experienced an increase of new account paperwork deemed not in good order (NIGO). We would like to send this friendly reminder to all advisors and staff opening accounts with PCA that there are 5 required PCA documents that MUST be completed and received before PCA Operations will submit the account paperwork to the custodian for opening.

They are:

  1. New Account Form
  2. Client Discretionary Agreement
  3. Schedule A
  4. Investment Summary Worksheet
  5. Volatility Tolerance Analysis

Most of the issues we’re seeing center around the Investment Summary Worksheet and the Volatility Tolerance Analysis. Please note, while one New Account Form, Client Discretionary Agreement, and Schedule A is sufficient for a client relationship, we require one Investment Summary Worksheet per account. Therefore, if opening two accounts for a client, we MUST receive two Investment Summary Worksheets, one for each account.

Regarding the Volatility Tolerance Analysis, we are receiving incomplete VTAs where either the Soon Bucket section, or Later Bucket section has not been completed by the client(s). For compliance purposes, both sections of the VTA must be completed and the last page signed by the client(s).

Failure to comply with these policies will result in paperwork being rejected and processing delayed until the issues are resolved.

Also, we’ve seen an increase in errors at the custodian due to illegible handwritten applications. While not a requirement, please note the account applications and additional forms are fillable PDFs that the information can be typed in. Another good practice would be to provide us with a copy of the client’s driver’s license. Again, not a requirement, but would be very helpful in resolving some of the errors at the custodian.

We are currently updating some of the PCA account opening forms to make the account opening process more efficient in an effort to provide clarity and reduce processing delays. We will be pushing those out in the next week or so. Regardless, the same 5 documents will be required for opening an account with PCA.

Our goal is to provide the best advisor/client experience and your attention to this matter is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
