Business Continuity

Inland Securities Corporation Business Continuity Summary Disclosure Statement

The purpose of the Business Continuity Plan is to inform our clients that Inland Securities Corporation of the Inland Real Estate Group of Companies has developed a plan on how we will respond to events that significantly disrupt our business. Since the timing and impact of disasters and disruptions is unpredictable, we will have to be flexible in responding to actual events as they occur. With that in mind, we are providing you with a summary below of the pertinent facts of our business continuity plan.

Contacting Us

If after a significant business disruption you cannot contact us as you usually do at 630.218.8000 or 800.826.8228, you should go to the web site for The Inland Real Estate Group of Companies, Inc (the “Inland Group”) at www.inlandgroup.com and check under “News” for detailed information on how to contact us.

Our Business Continuity Plan

We plan to quickly recover and resume business operations after a significant business disruption and respond by safeguarding our employees and property, making a financial and operational assessment, protecting the firm’s books and records, and allowing our customers to transact business. In short, our business continuity plan is designed to permit our firm to resume operations as quickly as possible, given the scope and severity of the significant business disruption.

Our business continuity plan addresses:

  • data back up and recovery;
  • all mission critical systems;
  • financial and operational assessments;
  • alternative communications with customers, employees, and regulators;
  • alternate physical location of employees;
  • critical supplier, contractor, bank and counter-party impact;
  • regulatory reporting;
  • and prompt access to our customer accounts.

Varying Disruptions

Significant business disruptions can vary in their scope, such as only our firm, a single building housing our firm, the business district where our firm is located, the city where we are located, or the whole region. Within each of these areas, the severity of the disruption can also vary from minimal to severe. In a disruption to only our firm or a building housing our firm, if needed, we will transfer our operations to a local site and expect to recover and resume business within 24 hours. In a disruption affecting our business district, city, or region, we will transfer our operations to a site outside of the affected area, and recover and resume business within 3 days. Our ability to recover and resume business in this time frame will be determined by the severity of the disruption. In either situation, we plan to continue in business and notify you through the Inland Group web site at www.inlandgroup.com/news. If the significant business disruption is so severe that it prevents us from remaining in business, we will assure our customer’s prompt access to their account records and payments of any selling commissions due.
