Business Continuity Disclosure
Exos Securities LLC (the Firm) has developed a Business Continuity Plan (Plan) that sets forth 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 Plan.
Contacting Us – If after a significant business disruption you cannot contact us as you usually do at +1-212-498-8942, or at our website at www.exosfinancial.com, you should contact our clearing firms: ICBC (fixed income) at +1-212-993-7304, RJ O'Brien (futures) at +1-312-373-5146 and Cantor Fitzgerald (equities) at +1-212-610-2320 for instructions on how they may provide prompt access to funds and securities, process trade-related inquiries or transactions, and gain access to cash and security information and transactions in the event of a significant business disruption.
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 the 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; alternative communications with customers, employees, and regulators; alternate physical location of employees; critical suppliers, contractors, banks and counter-parties impact; regulatory reporting; and assuring our customers prompt access to their funds and securities if we are unable to continue our business.
Our clearing firms back up our important records in a geographically separate area.
While every emergency situation poses unique problems based on external factors, such as time of day and the severity of the disruption, we have been advised by our clearing firms that its objective is to restore its own operations and be able to complete existing transactions and accept new transactions and payments within 24 hours. Your orders and requests for funds and securities could be delayed during this period.
Varying Disruptions – Significant business disruptions can vary in their scope, such as only the Firm, a single building housing the Firm, the business district where the 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 non-catastrophic or catastrophic disruption we will invoke our Plan and instruct our employees to work remotely from home or from another location as necessary and resume business as soon as possible. In either situation, we plan to continue in business, transfer operations to our clearing firms if necessary, and notify you through our website www.exosfinancial.com or +1-212-498-8942.
