Our Business Continuity Plan
Our Business Continuity Plan is designed to permit our firm to resume operations as quickly as possible, given the scope and severity of a significant business disruption.
In a disruption to only our firm or a building housing our firm, we will transfer our operations to a local site (if necessary) and would expect to recover and resume business quickly.  In a disruption affecting our business district, city, or region, we will most likely transfer our operations to a site outside of the affected area, and then attempt to promptly recover and resume business.  Under all scenarios, we plan to continue in business and to notify you regarding how to contact us.  If the business disruption is so severe that it prevents us from remaining in business, we will arrange notification for our customers relative to how they might be affected.
If after a significant business disruption you cannot contact us as you usually do at (908) 217-9723, you may email us at

Please contact us for more details on any of these issues. 


1. Introduction 

TGP Securities, Inc. (“the Firm” or “We”) is a broker-dealer registered with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission  (SEC) and is a member of Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) and the Securities Investor Protection Corporation  (SIPC). It is important for you to understand that brokerage fees are different from advisory fees. You may wish to avail  yourself of free and simple tools that are available to you for the purposes of researching our Firm as well as other firms and  financial professionals at, which also provides educational materials about broker-dealers,  investment advisers, and investing in general.  

When considering our services, ask your financial professional:  

• What investment services and advice can you provide me?  

• Given my financial situation, should I choose a brokerage service? Why or why not?  • How will you choose investments to recommend to me?  

• What is your relevant experience, including your licenses, education and other qualifications? What do  these qualifications mean? 

2. Relationships and Services  

There are different ways you can get help with your investments. You should carefully consider which types of accounts and  services are right for you. Please note that the Firm offers limited investment products and services. Specifically, we offer investors the opportunity to make self-directed investments on an agency-basis of interests in registered and unregistered  securities offerings, including private placements offered under Regulation D. Other security products or brokerage services  may be more suitable for you. Overall, TGP Securities, Inc. is a broker-dealer that provides private placement of securities  and merger and acquisition advisory services and may provide marketing services to private funds.  

The Firm does not open or maintain retail customer accounts, nor does the firm provide direct investment advisory services. Because TGP Securities does not hold customer accounts, all individual accounts, when established, are usually maintained  at financial institutions where your investments were channeled to, as when based on our recommendations. The broker dealer, or a custodian, or a transfer agent that holds your assets can charge you a transaction fee when we buy or sell an  investment for you. The Firm’s transaction fees would be in addition to those fees. You could also pay charges imposed by  the broker-dealer or a custodian holding your accounts for certain investments and for maintenance of your account. Some  investments, such as mutual funds and exchange traded funds, charge additional fees that will reduce the value of your  investments over time. TGP Securities does not manage clients’ assets and does not provide oversight of customer  accounts.  

The Firm charges agreed upon engagement fees detailed in the Investment Banking Agreement that prospective clients  execute with the firm. The terms of the agreement are memorialized and maintained by the Firm. There are no fees required  to establish a relationship with TGP Securities, Inc. 

Additionally, TGP Securities is engaged as a marketer with various private funds and will receive compensation as a result of  any recommendation that customers of the funds “use” to effect a securities transaction or investment strategy involving  securities. For additional information please visit our Web site ( for more detailed information about  our broker-dealer products and services.

When considering our services, ask your financial professional:  

• Help me understand how fees and costs might affect my overall investment. If I give you $10,000 to invest,  how much will go to fees and costs, and how much will be invested for me?  

• What Fees will I pay? 

3. Fees, Costs, Conflicts and Standard of Conduct  

Fees, costs, conflict and standard of conduct are all enumerated in the Investment Banking agreement. 

Fees and costs are incurred whether you make or lose money on your investments. The Firm recommends that the clients  make sure to understand what fees and costs they are responsible for. Where these fees apply, the more transactions you  enter into, the more compensation that we and your financial professional receive. This compensation creates an incentive  for us to encourage you to invest in private placements. Commissions and other sales concessions are charged when a  transaction occurs. You will be charged more the more transactions you do with our Firm, and we, therefore, have an  incentive to encourage you to invest in private placements. Transaction-based fees are based on a host of factors, including,  but not limited to: issuer and the type of offering participated in, size of your transaction and/or overall value of your  investment, frequency of your private placement investments, and available discounts and/or fee waivers. 

Standard of Conduct: The Firm acts in the clients’ best interest. Any possible conflicts are enumerated in the Investment  Banking Agreement. You should understand and ask us about these conflicts. 

How we make money: TGP Securities generates revenue as a result of transaction-based fee structures and other financial  arrangements between us and third parties. Securities rules allow for us to earn fees when we provide brokerage services  to you. The fees that we receive from you vary based upon the product or services you purchase. 

How do your financial professionals make money?- Registered Representatives earn a portion of the commissions and other  transaction fees you pay. As commissions are based on a number of factors, so is the compensation paid to our Registered  Representatives. For example, certain products pay higher commission rates than others. Employee bonuses may be paid  based on the overall profitability of TGP Securities  

Conflicts of Interest: Registered Representatives may invest in the same products offered to customers. TGP Securities has  procedures to monitor the personal trading activities and securities holdings of each of its Registered Representatives and  includes procedures for limitations on personal securities transactions of associated persons. These policies are designed to  discourage and prohibit personal trading that would disadvantage customers.
