Privacy Policy

Last Update: [September 20th, 2018]

Aperture Investors, LLC (“Aperture”) appreciates your business and the trust you have placed in us. Our privacy philosophy reflects the value of your trust. We are committed to protecting the personal data we obtain about you.  Aperture makes the following assurance of your privacy.

Aperture’s Use of Your Personal Data

Aperture, as a matter of policy, does not sell shareholder information to any other party, nor do we disclose such data to any other organization, except as permitted by law.  We have no plans to change this policy in the future.  We will notify you prior to making any change in this policy. 

Aperture uses your information primarily to communicate with you about market news, our firm and about other financial products that we offer.

The Information Aperture Collects From You

Aperture typically requests that you provide personal information when you complete the email signup form.  This information may include your:

  • Name, address and phone numbers
  • Approximate investable assets
  • Investor type (individual, professional, or financial intermediary)
  • Email address
  • Social media profiles

In addition to personal information you provide to us, Aperture may receive information about you that you authorize third parties to provide to us.  Aperture may also obtain personal information from third-party service providers in order to verify your identity, to prevent fraud, or to help us identify products and services that may be of interest to you.  Aperture may transfer or store the information we collect about you to or with our service providers in the United States or elsewhere, as permitted by law.  If you do not wish to provide information to Aperture, we may be unable to provide certain services to you.

Aperture Protects Your Personal and Financial Information

As emphasized above, Aperture does not sell information about current or former shareholders or their accounts to third parties.  Aperture will, however, release your personal information if you direct us to do so, if we are compelled by law to do so, or in other legally limited circumstances (for example, to protect your account from fraud).

Aperture considers the protection of personal information to be a fundamental component of customer trust and a sound business practice. Aperture restricts access to your information to those Aperture representatives who need to know the information to provide products or services to you.  Aperture maintains physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect your personal information.
