For your financial securities they are custodied with National Financial Services, LLC ("NFS"), a Fidelity Investment company. NFS custodies & reports on the value of your assets on a monthly or at a minimum on a quarterly basis. This third party custodian is what clients of Bernie Madoff did not have.
