VIA IV, A Trusted Financial Partner

Via 4, A Trusted Financial Partner by Jeff HollandWhen you partner with Via Four, you are not only gaining decades worth of experience from our advisors, you are also getting the security of our national brokerage custodians.

According to Wikipedia, a custodian is a specialized financial institution responsible for safeguarding a firm’s or individual’s financial assets and is not engaged in “traditional” commercial or consumer/retail banking, such as mortgage or personal lending, branch banking, personal accounts, or automated teller machines.

The additional protection from our custodians certainly augments the already existing high level of service that we provide to our clients. In conjunction with all of the services and guidance that you receive with Via Four, our custodians offer the following benefits:

  • Safeguard assets and securities: stocks, bonds, and commodities;
  • Settle purchases and sales and deliveries in/out of securities and currency;
  • Obtain information on and income from dividends in the case of stocks/equities and coupons (interest payments, in the case of bonds) and administer related tax withholding documents and foreign tax reclamation;
  • Administer voluntary and involuntary corporate actions on securities held such as stock dividends, stock splits, business combinations (mergers), tender offers, bond calls, etc.;
  • Maintain currency/cash bank accounts, affect deposits and withdrawals and manage other cash transactions;
  • Perform foreign exchange transactions; and
  • Often perform additional services for particular clients, such as mutual funds; examples include fund accounting, administration, legal, compliance and tax support services.

Past performance is not indicative of future performance. Your account may have significant capital losses at any given time.  Current and future results may be lower or higher. Portfolio prices can fluctuate materially. Investors may lose money; investing for short periods increases risk. Portfolios are not FDIC insured, nor are they deposits of or guaranteed by a bank or any other entity
Portions of these portfolios are invested in funds that trade international equities, International investments are subject to additional risks such as currency fluctuation, political instability, lack of market regulation and potential for illiquid markets.  Mid cap/Small cap investments are subject to greater volatility than those in other categories. Investors should carefully consider the investment objectives, risks, fees and expenses of each portfolio before investing.
