Adding Power of Attorney to your Mutual Fund

Designating a Power of Attorney gives the POA the authority to act on the behalf of another individual on financial matters. We require some additional steps to add POA to the mutual fund account. Simply having a POA designated by the court does not grant access to the mutual fund account.

·        If the Account Owner can sign documents, they are required to obtain a Medallion Signature Guarantee to add a POA
