Fulcrum Capital Holdings LLC (together with its subsidiaries and affiliates, "Fulcrum") is committed to conducting its business and operations with the highest ethical standards and in full conformity with the anti-money laundering (AML) regulations and statutes that are applicable to Fulcrum. Money Laundering is the process used to transform cash or other funds generated from illegal activities into legitimate financial institutions or businesses to conceal the initial source of the funds or to create assets that appear to come from legitimate sources. In addition, terrorist activities have added another dimension to money laundering whereby funds (whether legally created or not) are used to fund illegal activities.
Fulcrum is also committed to knowing its customers and potential customers. This commitment and understanding is also necessary for Fulcrum and all its employees to avoid criminal liability as a result of customers using the resources of the institution for illicit purposes (i.e., money laundering and the funding of terrorist or criminal activity). Therefore, it is the responsibility of all Fulcrum employees to make all reasonable efforts to deter money laundering activities and determine the true identity of its customers and to maintain a clear understanding of its customers' financial needs and practices.
Fulcrum has therefore developed an AML compliance program, which includes the following components: Establishment of an effective and reasonable customer identification program (CIP) using documentary and non-documentary methods, including, but not limited to: internal policies, procedures, and controls designed to detect and deter money laundering and suspicious activities and report of such transactions to appropriate parties/agencies as required; designation of one or more qualified individuals responsible for implementing and monitoring the day-to-day operations and internal controls of the program; sharing information with other financial institutions; independent audit of AML program by an outside party; ongoing AML training for appropriate Fulcrum personnel.
Fulcrum Capital Holdings LLC ("Fulcrum") and its affiliated entities, maintain a Business Continuity Plan (BCP) that has been developed to protect the health and safety of our employees and maintain continuity of service for our counterparties and investors. The key elements of our BCP include the following:
We maintain an office evacuation plan and emergency procedures in the event of a disaster affecting our primary office facilities or surrounding area.
We maintain an emergency contact list and procedures updated and distributed on a regular basis.
Critical data from our computer systems is backed up daily to tape with rotating copies stored offsite in secure, climate-controlled facilities.
Fulcrum employees can access Fulcrum computer data remotely via redundant secure connections. Fulcrum maintains back-up mail and file servers hosted and maintained in a geographically separate Fulcrum office. Critical data is also replicated, in near real-time, to back-up servers hosted and maintained in a geographically separate Fulcrum office.
The BCP is designed to address significant business disruptions of varying scope, including a firm-only disruption, single-building disruption, citywide business disruption, or a regional disruption. In the event of a significant business disruption, our employees would assemble at alternate business locations and access Fulcrum's computer data remotely. Key service providers would be contacted, and would continue to provide critical processing for our investment transactions. Our key service providers maintain offices outside of Austin, Texas, and would not be affected by a citywide business disruption. Even in the event of a regional disruption of significant scope, our key service providers maintain alternate business locations that permit them to resume critical functions in a reasonable period of time.
We cannot possibly forecast every potential problem that may occur, but we believe our BCP will enable us to continue to conduct business in the event of a variety of possible business disruptions. We believe that our BCP will help us to limit the recovery time necessary to resume operations.
We review our BCP at least annually. The BCP is subject to modification based on changing circumstances and assessment of need.
If you have any questions about our business continuity planning, please Contact Us.
