Within WCM

WCM employees are permitted access to the information they need to perform their jobs on your behalf. We maintain strict internal policies against unauthorized disclosure or use of client information by employees.


Companies That You Ask Us to Share With

From time to time, you may request that we provide information to third parties such as financial planners, portfolio consultants, tax advisors or legal counsel. In these cases, WCM will obtain your permission prior to sharing your information with the outside firm. WCM may get your written, online, or verbal permission to share your information. Your consent will apply only to the specific parties you request. If you have previously requested that we block the sharing of your information, that request will remain in place for all other situations, except where required by law.


Outside Service Providers

We have arrangements with companies whose experience is essential for our advisory services to operate properly. For example, we work with firms that execute securities transactions for us or our clients, custody client assets, provide systems or write software for accounting, compliance and other critical operational functions. These companies work at WCM's direction and only the client information necessary for them to perform these functions is shared. They are required to safeguard your information and only use it for authorized purposes, and within the guidelines established by WCM for the protection of client information.


Courts and Government Bodies

Certain federal and state laws may require us to share information about you. For example, if you are involved in a legal matter with a third party, we may be ordered to provide information to a court or other party. In these circumstances, only the specific information required by law, subpoena, or court order will be shared. The Fair Credit Reporting Act and other laws allow us to share specific details about your transactions and experience with us. The use of this information is limited by federal law to specific permissible purposes, such as applications for credit, insurance or employment.
