Business Continuity Disclosure


BlackArch Partners LLC and its affiliate, BlackArch Securities LLC (together, "BlackArch" or the "Firm") has developed a Business Continuity Plan for responding to events that significantly disrupt our business. Since the timing and impact of disasters and disruptions are unpredictable, we will have to be flexible in responding to actual events as they occur. With that in mind, we are providing you with this information on our business continuity plan.

Contacting Us – If after a significant business disruption you cannot contact us as you usually do by phone at 704-414-6300 or by e-mail at info@blackarchpartners.com, you should call our alternative number 704-609-6098.

Our Business Continuity Plan – We plan to quickly recover and resume business operations after a significant business disruption and respond by safeguarding our employees and property, making a financial and operational assessment, protecting the Firm's books and records, and allowing our customers to transact business. In short, our business continuity plan is designed to permit our Firm to resume operations as quickly as possible, given the scope and severity of the significant business disruption.

Varying Disruptions – Significant business disruptions can vary in their scope, such as only our firm, a single building housing our firm, the business district where our firm is located, the city where we are located, or the whole region. Within each of these areas, the severity of the disruption can also vary from minimal to severe. In a disruption to only our firm or a building housing our firm, we will transfer our operations to a local site when needed and expect to recover and resume business within 2 business days. In a disruption affecting our business district, city, or region, we will transfer our operations to a site outside of the affected area, and recover and resume business within 2 business days. In either situation, we plan to continue in business, and notify you through our customer emergency number, 704-609-6098 how to contact us.

For more information – If you have questions about our business continuity planning, you can contact us at 704-414-6300.

This plan is subject to modification, an updated summary will be promptly posted on our Web site and customers may alternatively obtain updated summaries by requesting a written copy by mail.
