NOTICE OF PRIVACY PRACTICES
In 1999, Congress passed the Gramm-Leach Bliley Act (the “GLBA”) in an effort to modernize the American financial markets. In connection with modernizing the financial marketplace, GLBA established standards for how financial institutions must protect the privacy of consumer financial information.
Under GLBA, the definition of financial institutions includes investment advisers. As an investment adviser, Horter Investment Management, LLC (“Horter Investment”), is subject to the provisions of the GLBA and is committed to protecting the privacy of its clients’ nonpublic personal financial information.
