At PWP we take the privacy of our clients very seriously. We will protect the confidentiality of all client information. Confidentiality means ensuring that information is accessible only to those authorized to have access. A relationship of trust and confidence with the client can only be built upon the understanding that the client’s information will remain confidential.
All non-public, personal information exchanged between the client and the firm will be treated as confidential and will not be disclosed to third parties, except as expressly requested by the client or as required by law.
To ensure security and confidentiality, PWP maintains physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect the privacy of its clients. Identifiable information about the client or prospective client will be maintained during the span of the engagement and for the period thereafter as required by both securities industry and privacy laws. After that time, information may be destroyed per firm policy.
