Business Continuity Disclosure

In accordance with regulations, Scottrade has developed a business continuity plan that is intended to permit us to continue critical business operations during natural disasters, power outages or other significant events.

While there can be no assurance that service will continue without interruption in all circumstances, our plan does address the actions that we will take in the event that there is a significant disruption. Account access is planned to be restored as the first step, which would be followed by other critical business operations.

We maintain a back-up facility, including a secondary data center for all of our branches nationwide. Our back-up facility is located well away from our primary facility so that it would not be affected by a regional disruption. Account access would be available through the data center at our back-up facility and your local branch office. Our plan will be reviewed, updated and tested periodically.
