International Institutional and Retail Customers
GSI is able to provide foreign institutional and retail accounts access to investments in the US via relationships with Foreign Associates or Foreign Finders. These relationships allow foreign accounts the ability to diversify assets by opening accounts in the United States, reducing political and concentrated risk in local markets
GSI supports financial representatives outside of the United States who do not have the Series 7 license through a Foreign Associate registration. Financial advisors outside of the United States are able to register as a Foreign Associate of GSI and open accounts with the firm’s US custodian and manage customer accounts.
Foreign Finder Relationships
Business development today relies mainly on relationships. GSI supports the referral of relationships and business through its Foreign Finder program. Through this program, finders are able to introduce new relationships to GSI and be compensated in referral fees.
