Dear [Financial Advisor],

Thank you for your attention and service with regards to my investment accounts.

I have recently decided to take additional steps to ensure that my financial well-being is in order. Thus, I have outlined some important questions below that I would like you to answer so that I can better understand the inner workings of the firm and practices.

Are you a Registered Investment Advisor? If yes, are you also affiliated with a broker dealer (aka Dually Registered)?

Does your firm offer proprietary mutual funds, separately managed accounts or other proprietary products? If yes, do I own any funds, products or vehicles where this is the case?

Do you or your firm receive any third-party compensation and/or commissions for recommending particular investments?

I thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding.
