Clearing and Custodian Contract Review

At Oyster Consulting, we help you maximize one of the most important strategic relationships you have – your clearing partnership.

The Challenge and the Choice

The clearing and custodial contract is one of the most important contracts a broker-dealer has. It affects the systems that broker-dealers use to interact with customers, how statements look and how the core aspects of the company run. We help our clients negotiate better terms with their current provider and transition firms to a different clearing or custodian provider. Our experts have saved companies hundreds of thousands of dollars. Leverage our expertise to get optimal value.

The Oyster Difference

Our consultants stay current with major clearing and custodial firms, their service offerings and representative clients. We also have several consultants that have worked decades at clearing firms.  Our industry experience is used to help you review your current contract, ensure business alignment and offer a comprehensive strategy to make sure you get optimal value.

Oyster Consulting will provide advice and guidance around pricing negotiation, value-add recommendations and best practices.
