FINRA Rule 4370 requires our firm to disclose to clients how our BCP addresses possible business disruptions in various circumstances and its plans to respond to events of varying scope. Hamilton Grant has developed a BCP that addresses data back-up and recovery; all mission critical systems; financial and operational assessments; alternative communications with customers, employees, and regulators; alternate physical location of employees; critical supplier, contractors, and banking; including regulatory reporting if we are unable to continue our business.
Significant business disruptions can vary in their scope, such as natural causes (acts of nature, earthquakes, fires, and floods), technical causes (communication failures, hardware, and software disruptions), or other causes (such as conditions imposed during a global pandemic). Our employees are geographically distributed, and our mission critical systems are available through secure Internet connections. We do not hold client funds or securities. If a widespread or localized disruption occurs, to the extent applicable, we will continue to operate through various remote sites if practical and expect to resume business within twenty-four hours. We will notify you through updates to our web site at www.hamiltongrant.com
