H2C Securities Inc., in cooperation with parent company, Fifth Third Bank, National Association, has established a comprehensive plan for its response to business disruptions that result from both natural and man-made emergencies.
The plan is designed to minimize the disruption to H2C Securities Inc. personnel, automated systems, and our customers by ensuring a rapid recovery from a variety of situations with varying levels of severity.
Procedures and facilities exist to provide service with minimal disruption in the event of any one location or business district being rendered inoperative. Personnel may be required to relocate to a predetermined facility that is able to adequately accommodate their needs.
A city wide or regional disruption that does not affect the H2C Securities Inc. Main Office Operations Department would be handled by directing customers to H2C Securities Inc.’ main corporate phone number for account servicing. In addition, those financial professionals who have the ability to conduct business from their home will function as if from a remote location.
A disruption affecting the building or business district surrounding the H2C Securities Inc. Main Office Operations Department may require the relocation of key support personnel to a fully equipped recovery site. A voicemail message stating that the H2C Securities Inc. Main Office Operations Department is temporarily unavailable will direct customers to contact Fifth Third Bank Commercial Support Center Core Number.
A regional disruption affecting the H2C Securities Inc. Main Office Operations Department and several remote facilities will result in a voicemail message that directs customers to contact Fifth Third Bank Commercial Support Center Core Number.
A disruption affecting the information technology infrastructure will result in a simultaneous transition of processing to a proprietary Information Technology Hot-site located hundreds of miles from the main processing site of Fifth Third Bank, National Association.
We have also reviewed the business continuity plans of our key support vendors to verify that they have adequate recovery procedures and infrastructure in place.
H2C Securities Inc. may periodically modify its Business Continuity Plan, Public Disclosure as needed. The modified disclosure will be posted on its public website promptly. A current version of our disclosure may otherwise be requested by sending a written request to: Fifth Third Bank Capital Markets, Investment Banking and M&A, 3344 Peachtree Road NE Suite 900, 9th Floor, Atlanta, GA 30326.
