Vision serves the needs of direct securities traders, investment advisors and other broker/dealers through its correspondent services. This includes providing clearing services in equities, options and fixed income.

Vision seeks to adhere to sound, conservative business principles so that it retains the trust and reliance, as a business partner, that our customers desire and deserve. Vision’s owners have a large personal investment stake in Vision’s net capital. Additionally, Vision’s capital has always been primarily invested in U.S. Treasuries and AA/AAA rated short-term securities. Vision’s goal is to provide its valued customers the best possible service and support to help them reach their investment goals.

Vision maintains memberships with the Depository Trust Clearing Corporation (“DTCC”) and the Options Clearing Corporation (“OCC”). DTCC and OCC, as clearinghouses, attempt to promote stability in the financial marketplace by implementing effective risk management policies.
