Your Assets Are Secure and You Retain Control:

CFO is an independent financial and investment advisory firm that is registered with the U.S. Securities Exchange Commission [SEC], and the absolute confidence of our clients in the safety and security of their investment accounts managed by CFO is of paramount importance. Our clients always retain control of their accounts. CFO does not take custody of clients' assets. All CFO client brokerage accounts are registered in the name of the client through an independent, third-party custodian: TD Ameritrade [Institutional]. 

Although a relative newcomer, TD Ameritrade Institutional's custodial services have grown rapidly over the last eleven years to now support over 4,500 independent registered investment advisors (RIAs) with over $700 Billion in total client assets under management. TD Ameritrade is also a member of the Securities Investor Protection Corporation (SIPC). Through SIPC, the investment securities in CFO client brokerage accounts are protected up to $500,000, with a cash limit of $250,000. [For more details, please also visit]. Additionally, TD Ameritrade provides each client $149.5 million worth of protection for securities and $2 million of protection for cash through supplemental coverage provided by London insurers.
