Insight Private Advisors, LLC has developed a Business Continuity Plan on 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 on our business continuity plan.

Contacting Us


Contacting Us – If after a significant business disruption, you cannot contact us as you usually do at
(908) 788-1799, you should call our alternative number (908) 575-7526 or access our website at
http://www.insightprivateadvisors.com. If you cannot access us through either of those means, you
should contact the appropriate clearing firm, Charles Schwab at (800) 435-4000 and/or Purshe Kaplan
Sterling Investments (800) 801-6851, and/or Morningstar (877) 626-3227, option # and/or SEI (800) 342-5734 for instructions on how it may provide prompt access to funds and securities, enter orders and process other trade-related, cash and security transfer transactions.

Our 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 communications with customers, employees, and regulators; alternate physical location of employees; critical supplier, contractor, bank and counter-party impact; regulatory reporting; and assuring our customers prompt access to their funds and securities if we are unable to continue our business.

Our clearing firm, Charles Schwab & Co., Inc. and Purshe Kaplan Sterling Investments, backs up our important records in a geographically separate area. While every emergency situation poses unique problems based on external factors, such as time of day and the severity of the disruption, we have been advised by our clearing firm that its objective is to restore its own operations and be able to complete existing transactions and accept new transactions and payments within 24 hours. Your orders and requests for funds and securities could be delayed during this period.

Varying Disruptions


Significant business disruptions can vary in their scope, such as only our firm, 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 too severe. In a disruption to only our firm or a building housing our firm, we will transfer our operations to a local site when needed and expect to recover and resume business within 24 hours. In a disruption affecting our business district, city, or region, we will transfer our operations to a site outside of the affected area, and recover and resume business within 48 hours. In either situation, we plan to continue in business, transfer operations to our clearing firm if necessary, and notify you through our website www.insightprivateadvisors.com. You may also contact us by calling our customer emergency number 908-788-1799. If the significant business disruption is so severe that it prevents us from remaining in business, we will assure our customer’s prompt access to their funds and securities.
