About Saturna Brokerage Services
Saturna Brokerage Services is a discount securities brokerage founded in 1986. We serve both knowledgeable investors and professionally managed trading accounts. We execute orders on an agency basis. We do not maintain an inventory to fill trades, buying securities and hoping to mark them up and sell them to customers. We are a wholly-owned subsidiary of Saturna Capital Corporation, an independent investment adviser. Our brokerage employees are salaried employees of Saturna Capital, and receive no commissions.
Our Clearing Broker, Pershing LLC
We employ Pershing LLC, member FINRA / NYSE / SIPC, as our clearing agent on a fully disclosed basis. We introduce your account to them and they carry your account and hold your securities.
Pershing LLC is a subsidiary of The Bank of New York Mellon Corporation.
Your Saturna Brokerage account is not an advisory account. Saturna Brokerage Services does not provide investment advice. Our interests as brokers may not always be the same as yours. Please ask us questions to make sure you understand your rights and our obligations to you, including the extent of our obligations to disclose conflicts of interest and to provide you with the service you expect. We are paid both by you and, sometimes, by people who compensate us based on your investment choices. The commissions we charge to customers may vary by type of service and customer. Therefore, our brokerage profits, and indirectly our salespersons' compensation, may vary by product and over time.
Saturna Capital Corporation, parent of Saturna Brokerage, provides investment advice to customers only under specific contracts. Various arrangements are available, including separately managed accounts (generally $1 million minimum) and affiliated no-load mutual funds ($250 or $1,000 initial minimums). Responsibilities to clients of investment advisers are generally higher than to customers of brokers, including the obligation to always put client interests before ours. Saturna investment advisory clients pay fees based on assets, and in some cases performance − but they generally do not pay brokerage commissions. Please ask your Saturna representative for more information on the difference between brokerage accounts and advisory accounts.
