Where will my account be held?

Capital Ideas will not take physical possession of your securities. All of the securities holdings within your portfolio will need to be traded through a registered brokerage house. If you have a stockbroker, Capital Ideas can direct all trades through him or her and your assets will remain in the custody of that brokerage house. If you need to retain a broker, Capital Ideas has an established relationship with First Clearing Corporation (a subsidiary of Wells Fargo) through an affiliation with a registered securities broker. As a service to our clients, Capital Ideas personnel will be happy to assist you with the transfer of your account to this affiliated brokerage firm.
