Privacy Policy


This Privacy Notice is from Townsend, a registered investment advisor in the business of providing investment advisory services to customers.

Townsend is committed to safeguarding the confidential information of its clients. Townsend holds all personal information provided by clients in the strictest confidence. Townsend representatives may also be registered representatives of Securities America, Inc. (SAI), a registered broker/dealer that is not affiliated with Townsend. Townsend may also have relationships with other non-affiliated registered investment advisors, such as Securities America Advisors, Inc. (SAA), an affiliate of SAI, insurance companies, trust companies, custodians and other financial institution entities. Except as required or permitted by law, Townsend does not share confidential information about clients with non-affiliated third parties. In the unlikely event there were to be a change in this fundamental policy that would permit additional disclosures of client confidential information, Townsend will provide written notice to its clients, and clients will be given an opportunity to direct whether such disclosure is permissible.


Customer Information Collected. Townsend collects and develops personal information about clients, and some of that information is non-public personal information (Customer Information). The essential purpose for collecting Customer Information is to provide and service the financial products and services clients obtain from Townsend. The categories of Customer Information collected by Townsend depend upon the scope of the engagement with the client and are generally described below. As an investment advisor, Townsend collects and develops Customer Information about clients in order to provide investment advisory services. Customer Information Townsend collects includes:

  • Information received from clients on financial inventories through consultations. This Customer Information may include personal and household information such as income, spending habits, investment objectives, financial goals, statements of account and other records concerning clients’ financial condition and assets, together with information concerning employee benefits and retirement plan interests, wills, trusts, mortgages and tax returns.
  • Information developed as part of financial plans, analyses or investment advisory services.
  • Information concerning investment advisory account transactions, such as wraps account transactions.
  • Information about a client’s financial products and services transactions with Townsend.
  • SMS related information and/or data received via SMS.

Data Security. Townsend restricts access to Customer Information to representatives and employees who need the information to perform their job responsibilities. Townsend maintains agreements, as well as physical, electronic and procedural securities measures that comply with federal regulations to safeguard Customer Information about clients.

Use and Disclosure of Customer Information to Provide Customer Service for Accounts. To administer, manage and service customer accounts, process transactions and provide related services for client accounts, it is necessary for Townsend to provide access to Customer Information within the firm and to non-affiliated companies such as SAI, SAA, other investment advisors, other broker/dealers, trust companies, custodians and insurance companies. Townsend may also provide Customer Information outside of the firm as permitted by law, such as to government entities, consumer reporting agencies or other third parties in response to subpoenas.

By providing your mobile phone number, you consent to receive operational text messages (e.g. appointment reminders, event invites) from Townsend at the number provided, including messages sent by autodialer. Consent is not a condition to receiving text messages. Msg & data rates may apply. Msg frequency varies. Unsubscribe at any time by informing Townsend via written or verbal notice. Reach out to Townsend for more information.

Former Clients. When clients close an account with Townsend, Townsend will continue to operate in accordance with the principles stated in the Notice.

Requirements of Federal Law. In November of 1999, Congress enacted the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA). The GLBA requires certain financial institutions, including broker-dealers and investment advisors, to protect the privacy of Customer Information. To the extent a financial institution discloses Customer Information to non-affiliated third parties, other than as permitted or required by law, customers must be given the opportunity and means to opt out (or prevent) such disclosure. Please note that Townsend does not disclose Customer Information to non-affiliated third parties, except as permitted or required by law (e.g., disclosures to service a client’s account or to respond to subpoenas).
