Nonpublic client information about our clients and former clients is internally controlled and access is restricted to firm associates who need to know that information to provide our services to you.

We do not disclose any personal nonpublic client information about current or former clients except as noted in this message and permitted by law.
While we take great care in attempting to know our investors’ individual investment goals and objectives today, this law requires us to take additional steps to verify the identity of persons opening new accounts, including verifying the identity of prospective investors, consulting applicable government agency lists of known or suspected criminals, terrorists and terrorist organizations to determine if any of our prospective or current investors are on such list, and conducting, in certain circumstances, additional due diligence when accounts are opened, including requesting information about the source of funds deposited into such accounts.
Hunter Associates intends to comply with this and all other requirements of law, and we thank you for your assistance in meeting our obligations.
Hunter Associates offers a money market cash sweep program “cash sweep program” through the introducing broker dealer custodian. The cash sweep program invests any uninvested cash balances for which no interest is otherwise earned or paid in your account. The cash sweep program automatically sweeps (deposits) any available cash in the account into interest-bearing money market funds. The invested fund balances remain until these balances are invested by you, otherwise needed to satisfy obligations arising in connection with your account, or requested by you for payment.
You must monitor and determine the best cash sweep option for you under this program. You may also elect not to participate in the cash sweep program and instead periodically invest cash balances directly.
You will be notified if we modify the cash sweep program in a way that results in changing the sweep vehicle for your account. Unless you tell us otherwise within the time period specified in the notice, your cash balances will be moved to the new sweep vehicle that we designate under the program.
