  Privacy Policy

Mainstay Capital Management (MCM) recognizes that as your investment advisor you entrust us with both your hard-earned assets and your personal and financial information. We consider this information to be private and confidential. Ensuring your privacy is our utmost concern.

Information We Collect.  MCM uses your personal information to provide you with the superior service you expect from us. MCM may collect public and nonpublic personal information about you from any of the following sources:

  • Information from forms you provide to us in connection with your accounts (such as your name, address, birth date, social security number, assets, and income);
  • Information about the accounts that MCM manages or monitors on your behalf (such as trading history and account balances);
  • Information obtained through discussions with you about your accounts or inquiries made by you regarding your accounts (such as portfolio risk profiles, income needs, and account set-up preferences);
  • Information obtained from other sources with your consent (for example, from other institutions if you are transferring assets to be managed by MCM).

Information We Disclose.  MCM has always considered the protection of sensitive information to be a foundation of customer trust and an important business practice. We restrict access to personal information to those who require it. We may disclose the personal information that we collect to companies that perform administrative, custodial, or other services related to your account. Those companies include your custodian or executing broker, transfer agents, and others deemed necessary for administration and management of your account. Those companies use the information we share only to perform the services for which we engage them, and are not permitted to use or disclose the information for any other purpose. In addition we may disclose personal information when required to do so, to government agencies, other regulatory bodies, and law enforcement officials.

Information Safeguarding.  MCM internally safeguards information about you by restricting access to only those employees who need access to your information to service your accounts. We employ physical, electronic, and procedural controls in keeping with industry standards and practices, and we regularly adapt these controls to respond to changing requirements and advances in technology.

Changes to Our Privacy Policy.  We reserve the right to change our privacy policy in the future but we will not disclose your nonpublic personal information, except as described here or required by law, without giving you an opportunity to instruct us not to.

If you decide in the future either to close your account(s) or to become an inactive client, we will continue to adhere to the privacy policies and practices described in this notice.
