At the end of every month, account statements are provided detailing portfolios costs, market value, relative weighting and other information. Each dividend payment, interest payment, cash disbursement or other transaction is recorded as it occurs both within our own firm and with the clearing broker, and reconciled each month and quarter to ensure proper accuracy. Levy, Harkins clients receive directly from the executing broker original confirmations of each transaction within a few days of its completion.
Each quarter we write to you, commenting on some facet of our current investment tactics, and presenting to you in one global and easily understandable number how you are doing for the quarter and the year. And, of course, you are only a phone call away, any day, from knowing the exact value of your account.
