Linked account mail packets

Clients with multiple accounts can take advantage of mail packet linking to help reduce mailings. In the same manner as client statements, the mail packet linking service allows you to receive account information for multiple linked accounts in one mailing, keeping all your pertinent transaction information together. For example, confirmations for trades made within any of your linked accounts on the same day will be sent in the same envelope. The trade confirmations will be separated by account and will clearly identify the number of trades and pages associated with that account.
