Anti-Money Laundering

To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, U.S. federal law and regulation requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each customer. Accordingly, in order to verify the identity of its clients, DC Advisory will ask for the name, address, and other relevant information when on-boarding a new client, including identifying documents such as articles of incorporation.

Business Continuity Planning


DC Advisory has developed a Business Continuity Plan setting forth how we will respond to events that significantly disrupt our business. Since the timing and impact of disasters and disruptions is unpredictable, we will have to be flexible in responding to actual events as they occur. With that in mind, we are providing you with this information about our business continuity plan.

Contacting Us – If after a significant business disruption you cannot contact us as you usually do, you should call our alternative number (202-908-4000), consult our web site at for any relevant alternative contact information, and monitor your voice mail and e-mail for communications from us.

Business Continuity Plan

We plan to quickly recover and resume business operations after a significant business disruption and respond by safeguarding our employees and property, making a financial and operational assessment, protecting the firm’s books and records, and allowing our customers to transact business. In short, our business continuity plan is designed to permit our firm to resume operations as quickly as possible, given the scope and severity of the significant business disruption.

Our business continuity plan addresses: data backup and recovery; all mission critical systems; financial and operational assessments; alternative means of communications with customers, employees, and regulators; alternate physical location of employees; critical supplier, contractor, bank and counter-party impact; and regulatory reporting.  The firm does not hold any customer funds or securities.

The DC Advisory Business Continuity Plan is reviewed periodically and subject to change without notice. A written copy of the summary of the plan is provided to customers upon request.
