We are also a member of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) (www.finra.org), which is the largest independent regulator for all securities firms doing business in the United States. Neither FINRA nor the SEC approves or endorses the products or services offered by the Company.
In order to participate in the municipal securities markets, we are also required to be registrants with the Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board (MSRB) (www.msrb.org) whose mission is to protect investors, municipal entities and the public interest by promoting a fair and efficient municipal market, regulating firms that engage in municipal securities and advisory activities, and promoting market transparency. The MSRB does not approve or endorse the products or services offered by the Company.
Jeffrey Matthews is a member of the Securities Investor Protection Corporation (SIPC) and our clients are therefore eligible for SIPC insurance protection. In the rare and unforeseen event that Jeffrey Matthews would become insolvent and by some unlikely circumstance there were securities missing from your account, SIPC reserve funds would be available to satisfy your claims against the firm, up to $500,000 per client, including up to $250,000 in cash.
