Teneo Securities LLC’s Business Continuity Planning

Teneo Securities LLC has developed a Business Continuity Plan (“BCP”) on how we will respond to events that significantly disrupt our business. Since the timing and impact of disasters and disruptions is 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 BCP.

The Firm has developed and installed a BCP in the case of any business disruption that causes the Firm to have limited or no communications with its employees or customers. Our plan anticipates two types of business disruptions, internal disruptions which affect only our Firm’s ability to do business (such as a fire in our building) and external disruptions that prevent the operation of securities markets or other firms (such as natural disasters or acts of war).

The Firm intends to stay in business during both internal and external disruptions due to the fact that the Firm employees can conduct Firm related business from alternate off-site physical locations and the Firm maintains an alternate location for the maintenance of its books and records. We anticipate that the Firm will recover from internal business disruptions within 24-48 hours. An outage due to an external business disruption may be longer and is beyond the control of the Firm. However, the Firm will endeavor to resume business as soon as it is possible for the Firm to establish business operations from alternate off-site physical locations.

The Firm’s BCP specifically addresses the following areas related to Firm operations:

  • Data back-up and recovery (hard copy and electronic);
  • All mission critical systems;
  • Procedures to test and determine the Firm’s ability to do business (i.e., financial and operational assessments);
  • Alternate communications between customers and the Firm;
  • Alternate communications between the Firm and its employees;
  • Alternate physical location of employees;
  • Critical business constituent, bank, and counter-party impact;
  • Regulatory reporting; and
  • Communications with regulators.
