American Partners Financial Services LLC has adopted a Business Continuity Plan (“Plan”) pursuant to the Investment Advisers Act and the rules and guidance of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). The purpose of the Plan is to define the strategies and plans that will be used by us during a significant business disruption. The Plan is prepared to address both internal Disruptions, such as a fire in our building, and external Disruptions, such as a natural disaster, terrorist attack, or citywide power disruption.
Our Business Continuity Plan
In the event of a Disruption, Advisor will safeguard employee lives and firm property. Advisor will work to re-establish the systems necessary to quickly recover and resume operations, protect Advisor’s books and records and allow Advisor’s customers to transact business to the extent reasonable and practical under the circumstances. Our Plan addresses: alternate office locations, customer access to funds and securities, financial and operational assessments, data backup and recovery, critical systems, alternative communications with customers, employees, and regulators, and critical business constituents.

Disruptions can vary in their scope, from only our firm to a single building housing our firm, the business district where our firm is located, the city where we are located, or the whole region. Within each of these areas, the severity of the disruption can also vary from minimal to severe. In a disruption to only our firm or a building housing our firm, we intend to transfer our operations to a local site when needed and expect to recover and resume business within a four-hour time period. In a disruption affecting our business district, city, or region, we intend to transfer our operations to a site outside the affected area, and recover and resume business within a 24-hour time period. In either situation, we plan to continue in business. However, the ability of American Partners Financial Services LLC to fully function is dependent on outside sources outside of its control, including the availability of electricity, telephones, Internet, transportation, and the functioning of institutions and markets worldwide. Nothing in American Partners Financial Services LLC’s Plan or this disclosure statement is intended to provide a guarantee or warranty regarding the actions or performance of American Partners Financial Services LLC.
