  • Social security number;
  • Assets;
  • Investment experience;
  • Transaction history;
  • Income; and
  • Wire transfer instructions.

Tremblant collects this information from you through various means. For example when you give Tremblant your contact information, enter into an investment advisory contract with us, buy securities (i.e., interests in a fund) from Tremblant, tell Tremblant where to send money, or make a wire transfer. Tremblant also may collect your personal information from other sources, such as our affiliates or other non-affiliated companies.

All financial companies need to share customers’ personal information to run their everyday business and Tremblant uses the personal information we collect from you for our everyday business purposes. These purposes may include for example:

Tremblant may also disclose such information to service providers and financial institutions with whom we have joint marketing arrangements (i.e., a formal agreement between nonaffiliated financial companies that together market financial products or services to you, such as placement agents). Tremblant requires third-party service providers and financial institutions with which we have joint marketing arrangements to protect the confidentiality of your information and to use the information only for the purposes for which we disclose the information to them.
