Order Execution and Routing Practices Policy
At Northland, we value the trust you have placed in us and take our responsibilities to you very seriously. Processing your trades efficiently and effectively is an integral part of the service you should expect from Northland.
The Securities and Exchange Commission and FINRA require that all broker-dealers provide information about the routing destinations and execution detail for customer orders. To address this requirement, Northland Securities has produced a quarterly report which gives execution information and identifies order routing destinations. Northland Securities routes the majority of orders to the clearing firm, Pershing LLC. Pershing also produces a report that displays routing destinations and execution information for the orders that they receive from Northland.

Order Flow Statement
In return for routing orders to a specific market center, Northland may receive cash payment. All customer orders subject to payment for order flow are sent to market centers that execute market and marketable limit orders at prices not inferior to the displayed National Best Bid or Offer (“NBBO”). Each market center provides the opportunity for execution of orders at prices better than the NBBO. Each order is exposed to all exchanges and market centers for potential price improvement. Northland currently does not receive monetary compensation for order flow. A small percentage of NASDAQ orders are routed internally to our market maker. Northland executes these internal orders in a principal capacity, which may produce profit for Northland. This information is provided pursuant to SEC Rule 11A(c)(1-3) and SEC Rule 606.

Pershing Corestone Account Fee Disclosure
Northland is committed to the confidentiality and protection of personal non-public information obtained from clients. The privacy of your personal information and the way Northland treats that information is among Northland’s highest priorities. This is our opportunity to share with you the reasons why we need this information and our commitment to protecting the information you provide.
The Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) has adopted Regulation BI (“RegBI”), a new rule under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (“Exchange Act”) establishing a “best interest” standard of conduct for broker-dealers and Registered Investment Advisors (“RIAs”) and associated persons when making a recommendation of any securities transaction or investment strategy involving securities to a retail customer. The standard of conduct is to act in the best interest of the retail customer at the time a recommendation is made, without placing the financial or other interest of the broker-dealer, RIA, or associated person making the recommendation ahead of the interest of the retail customer. The SEC concurrently adopted a rule requiring each broker-dealer and RIA to provide its retail clients and file with the SEC a “Client Relationship Summary” (“Form CRS”) providing information about that broker-dealer or RIA and the way it conducts business.
The RegBI Form CRS compliance and implementation date is June 30, 2020.

Securities Investor Protection Corporation (SIPC)
Northland Securities is a Member of FINRA and SIPC, and Registered with SEC and MSRB. SIPC is an important part of the overall system of investor protection in the United States. SIPC was created under the Securities Investor Protection Act as a non-profit membership corporation which protects against the loss of cash and securities – such as stocks and bonds – held by a customer at a financially-troubled SIPC-member brokerage firm. SIPC protection is limited and it does not protect against the decline in value of your securities. Investments in the stock market are subject to fluctuations in market value; SIPC was not created to protect against these risks.
