Do you have your Birch trading records?
Now might be a good time to start gathering them together.
It's been 8 years and you may have stashed the records in a box somewhere in dark corner of the garage and forgotten about them. Or, maybe you dumped them in the trash when Birch went into receivership. Or, maybe, you changed your broker.
Can't find your records?
You'll need to start making some phone calls. Whether it's a broker or transfer agency, hopefully, your records are archived somewhere.
