Also available, Galaxy Statements:
Through our proprietary Galaxy System, we can also prepare a complete monthly statement for you, covering all securities you purchase through Saturna, and any others for which you furnish the information. To get started, sign and return a completed Trade Statement, available on request. Galaxy statements are on "trade date" basis, not settlement as with brokerage statements, for timely computation of account value. The Galaxy system is a true tax-lot accounting service, listing each security you own by purchase date and price. When you sell, we follow your instructions on identifying which position is to be sold.
Brokerage accounts are available for all account types Saturna offers: IRAs, Health Savings Accounts, Education Savings Accounts, 401(k)s (if allowed by plan), and non-retirement accounts.
IRAs are for the benefit of an individual owner, and we offer a variety of IRA types to choose from: Roth IRA, Traditional IRA, plus pension and profit-sharing plans (SEP and SIMPLE).
With non-retirement accounts, you have a variety of ownership options, including joint, individual, UGMA/UTMA, trust, estate, and corporate.
Account services for securities held in "Street Name."
Street Name describes securities held in a clearing agent's name rather than the customer's name. When your securities are held in street name, it’s easy to transfer them at the time of a sale, and you don’t have to worry about the loss of security certificates or their costly replacement. In addition, you’ll receive the following account services from Saturna Brokerage:
Shortly after the end of each calendar quarter, you will receive a comprehensive Account Statement that includes all your identically registered Saturna Brokerage and Saturna fund accounts. Between quarters, you’ll receive statements for your Saturna Brokerage account for each month that your brokerage account has activity.
Electronic statement and trade confirmations.
You may elect to save paper and receive your Account Statements as well as your trade confirmations electronically.
