Altruist is becoming a
self-clearing custodian.

As we approach our conversion, we will ensure that advisors and clients are up-to-date on all relevant information.

What can you expect?

Like much of Altruist’s functionality, the process will be digital, easy, and non-disruptive to clients and advisors. First and foremost: there’s no repapering!

Starting in December, clients will be able to acknowledge a new account agreement via the Altruist app or desktop portal. The conversion will occur in February, over a weekend. We’ll send periodic reminders to ensure that new agreements are completed within 60 days post conversion.
