General Disclosures

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) require member firms to disclose to their customers when opening an account and at least once a year after that, their policies and procedures regarding customer identification, business continuity, trade routing, and investor protection.
Sumridge Partners, LLC ("Firm") has created and implemented its own policies and procedures in an effort to mitigate the effects related to unforeseen business interruptions, to supply the necessary routing information about specific orders, and to provide investor protection.
Enclosed you will find our disclosure statements in those areas.


The Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") requires all registered broker-dealers to disclose their policies regarding receipt of "payment for order flow". The Commission defines "payment for order flow" as "any monetary payments, services, property, or other benefits that result in remuneration, compensation, or consideration to a broker or dealer from any broker or dealer, national securities exchange, registered securities association, or exchange member in return for the routing of customer orders by such broker or dealer to any broker or dealer, national securities exchange, registered securities association, or exchange member in return for the routing of customer orders by such broker or dealer to any broker or dealer, national securities exchange, registered securities association, or exchange member for execution, including but not limited to research, clearance, custody, products or services, reciprocal agreements for the provision of order flow adjustment of a broker or dealer’s unfavorable trading errors, effort to participate as underwriter in public offerings, stock loans or shared interest accrued thereon, discounts, rebates, or any other reductions of or credits against any fee to, or expense or other financial obligation of, the broker or dealer routing a customer order that exceeds that fee, expense or other financial obligation".
SumRidge Partners LLC may receive from time to time remuneration in the form of rebates for providing liquidity to Electronic Communications Networks ("ECN's"). The rebates are used to offset the cost of execution charged to SumRidge by the ECN. Any additional information concerning order flow payment will be disclosed upon written request.

Extended Hours Trading Risk Disclosures

You should consider the following points before engaging in extended hours trading. “Extended hours trading” means trading outside of "regular trading hours". "Regular trading hours" generally means the time between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.

  • Risk of Lower Liquidity. Liquidity refers to the ability of market participants to buy and sell securities. Generally, the more orders that are available in a market, the greater the liquidity. Liquidity is important because with greater liquidity it is easier for investors to buy or sell securities, and as a result, investors are more likely to pay or receive a competitive price for securities purchased or sold. There may be lower liquidity in extended hours trading as compared to regular trading hours. As a result, your order may only be partially executed, or not at all.
  • Risk of Higher Volatility. Volatility refers to the changes in price that securities undergo when trading. Generally, the higher the volatility of a security, the greater its price swings. There may be greater volatility in extended hours trading than in regular trading hours. As a result, your order may only be partially executed, or not at all, or you may receive an inferior price when engaging in extended hours trading than you would during regular trading hours.
  • Risk of Changing Prices. The prices of securities traded in extended hours trading may not reflect the prices either at the end of regular trading hours, or upon the opening the next morning. As a result, you may receive an inferior price when engaging in extended hours trading than you would during regular trading hours.
  • Risk of Unlinked Markets. Depending on the extended hours trading system or the time of day, the prices displayed on a particular extended hours trading system may not reflect the prices in other concurrently operating extended hours trading systems dealing in the same securities. Accordingly, you may receive an inferior price in one extended hours trading system than you would in another extended hours trading system.
  • Risk of New Announcements. Normally, issuers make news announcements that may affect the price of their securities after regular trading hours. Similarly, important financial information is frequently announced outside of regular trading hours. In extended hours trading, these announcements may occur during trading, and if combined with lower liquidity and higher volatility, may cause an exaggerated and unsustainable effect on the price of a security.
  • Risk of Wider Spreads. The spread refers to the difference in price between what you can buy a security for and what you can sell it for. Lower liquidity and higher volatility in extended hours trading may result in wider than normal spreads for a particular security.

For additional information, please refer to FINRA Rule 2265 and FINRA Notice to Members 00-07.
