Custody Fidelity Investments®  provides clearing and custody services to Rocky Hill Advisors. Fidelity Institutional Wealth Services® is a leading provider of trading, custody, and brokerage services to Registered Investment Advisors, Trust Institutions, and Third-Party Administrators. The company is able to leverage the capital, resources, and expertise of the Fidelity organization, one of the world’s largest financial services companies, on behalf of its clients. Securities in accounts carried by National Financial Services LLC (“NFS”), a Fidelity Investments company, are protected in accordance with the Securities Investor Protection Corporation (“SIPC”) up to $500,000.  For claims filed on or after July 22, 2012, the $500,000 total amount of SIPC protector is inclusive of up to $250,000 protection for claims for cash, subject to periodic adjustments for inflation in accordance with terms of the SIPC statute and approval by SIPC’s Board of Directors.  NFS also has arranged for coverage above these limits. Neither coverage protects against a decline in the market value of securities, nor does either coverage extend to certain securities that are considered ineligible for coverage.  For more details on SIPC, or to request a SIPC brochure, visit or call 202.371.8300. “Excess of SIPC” Coverage in addition to SIPC protection, NFS provides for brokerage accounts additional “excess of SIPC” coverage from Lloyd’s of London together with other insurers. The “excess of SIPC” coverage would only be used when SIPC coverage is exhausted. Like SIPC protection, “excess of SIPC” protection does not cover investment losses in customer accounts due to market fluctuation.  It also does not cover other claims for losses incurred while broker-dealers remain in business.  Total aggregate “excess of SIPC” coverage available through NFS’ “excess of SIPC” policy is $1 billion.  Within NFS’ “excess of SIPC” coverage, there is no per account dollar limit on coverage of securities, but there is a per account limit of $1.9 million on coverage of cash.  This is the maximum “excess of SIPC” protection currently available in the brokerage industry. Lloyd’s of London currently has an A (excellent)rating with “Stable Outlook” from the ratings firm A.M. Best and an A+ (strong) rating with “Stable Outlook” from Fitch Ratings and Standard & Poor’s.
