SC Distributors, LLC has developed a Business Continuity Plan on how we will respond to events that significantly disrupt our business. Since the timing and impact of disasters and disruptions is unpredictable, we will have to be flexible in responding to actual events as they occur. With that in mind, we are providing you with this information on our business continuity plan.
Contacting Us - If you cannot access us through either phone or e-mail, you should contact the Fund or the broker/dealer though which you have invested in directly for instructions on how you may access investment information, invest additional funds and/or provide you with access to your funds as provided for in the subscription documentation.
Our Business Continuity Plan- We plan to quickly recover and resume business operations after a significant business disruption and respond by safeguarding our employees and property, making a financial and operational assessment, protecting the firm’s books and records, and allowing our customers to transact business. In short, our business continuity plan is designed to permit our firm to resume operations as quickly as possible, given the scope and severity of the significant business disruption. Our business continuity plan addresses: data backup and recovery; all mission critical systems; financial and operational assessments; alternative communications with customers, employees, and regulators; alternate physical location of employees; critical supplier, contractor, bank and counter-party impact; regulatory reporting; and assuring our customers prompt access to their funds and securities if we are unable to continue our business.
Since you invest directly, the Fund is responsible for those records that they maintain on your behalf as an investor in theirinvestment program. Additionally, when you invest with our assistance, we take steps to assure that you have paper or electronic copies of everything that you have signed and or obligated yourself to, which results in your having access to essentially the samerecords as us, should you be unable to contact us during a an emergency situation. Finally, while most transactions done through us are not time sensitive, every emergency situation poses unique problems based on external factors, such as time of day and these verity of the disruption. Thus, while the Fund desires to restore its own operations and be able to complete existing transactions and accept new transactions and payments within a short period of time, your orders and requests for funds and securities could be delayed during this period by them.
Varying Disruptions- Significant business disruptions can vary in their scope, such as only our firm, a single building housing our firm, the business district where our firm is located, the city where we are located, or the whole region. Within each of these areas, the severity of the disruption can also vary from minimal to severe. In a disruption to only our firm or a building housing our firm, we will transfer our operations to a local site when needed and expect to recover and resume business within forty-eight (48) to seventy-two (72) hours. In a disruption affecting our business district, city, or region, we will transfer our operations to a site outside of the affected area, and recover and resume business within seventy-two (72) hours. In either situation, we plan to continue in business, and notify you through our customer emergency number how to contact us. If the significant business disruption is so severe that it prevents us from remaining in business, we will take steps to assure your prompt interface with the Fund.
