The Command Asset Program gives you unlimited access to professional investment advice and research. Your Financial Advisor is available to help you make sound investment decisions to help you reach your short- and long-term goals.
You can automatically access your Command credit line against the value of your marginable securities by simply writing a check or using your debit card. Loan interest is minimized as deposits credited to your account automatically pay down the credit line. This feature also provides overdraft protection for your Command Asset Program.
*Margin borrowing may not be suitable for all investors. When you use margin, you are subject to a high degree of risk. Market conditions can magnify any potential for loss. The value of the securities you hold in your account, which will fluctuate, must be maintained above a minimum value in order for the loan to remain in good standing. If it is not, you will be required to deposit additional securities and/or cash in the account, or securities in the account may be sold. Please carefully review the margin agreement which explains the terms and conditions of the margin account, including how the interest on the loan is calculated.
The Command monthly statement is innovative in its comprehensive financial detail and customer-friendly design. Your statement can help you organize and categorize your finances, ultimately showing you everything you need to know, including:
- Account earnings
- Portfolio holdings
- ATM transactions
- All investment activity
- All banking activity
Your progress summary provides values for all of the cash flowing into and out of the account along with the change-in-value for the period. The value-over-time graph illustrates your progress during the current year.
Your portfolio summary categorizes your investments by asset type for the last two periods. It shows both dollar values and portfolio percentages, with the current month’s allocation percentage displayed in the pie chart.
You can choose to have a summary balance of "other assets," such as checking accounts, and "other liabilities," including credit cards and credit lines. Contact your Financial Advisor for details.
For certain personal and business accounts, the Command Asset Program includes an annual summary and tax package, which provides an enhanced tax statement and an annual summary in one concise document. It can help you save time as you compile your end-of-year tax information and plan new investment strategies for the coming year. Contact your Financial Advisor for details.
The annual summary and tax package includes:
- A table of contents
- Summary of reportable tax information
- Consolidated Forms 1099
- Asset earnings summary
- Gain/loss summary4
- Portfolio assets report
- Account activity recap
- A report of other assets and liabilities (may include IRAs, credit cards, and loans)
