Providing investment advice to, and recommendations on, individual retirement account (IRA) assets imposes strict fiduciary duties and complex compliance responsibilities on HSBC Securities (USA) Inc. (“HSBC Securities”) and HSBC Securities Advisors.
To assist with these compliance regulations, HSBC Securities has simplified our IRA product and service offerings, which will allow us to provide high-quality products and services for individual retirement account (IRA) assets with a focus on:
Investment advice or recommendations from HSBC Securities’ Advisors for IRA assets will only be available for the above products and services.
Other wealth products, including but not limited to mutual funds, individual equities, and fixed income, may still be purchased in an IRA account, however these assets will not be advised through an HSBC Securities’ Advisor. These products will only be available in a non-advised, execution only IRA account, which are sometimes referred to as “self-directed” or “client-directed” accounts.
