CUSTOMER RELATIONSHIP SUMMARY

7/9/21

INTRODUCTION
Global Shares Financial Services, Inc. (“GSFS”) is registered with the SEC as a broker-dealer and is a member of FINRA & SIPC. Brokerage and investment advisory services and fees differ. It is important that you understand those differences. Free and simple tools are available to research firms and financial professionals at www.Investor.gov/CRS, which also provides educational materials about broker-dealers, investment advisers, and investing.

WHAT INVESTMENT SERVICES AND ADVICE CAN YOU PROVIDE ME?

GSFS provides brokerage services to participants in employer stock incentive plans administered by its affiliate Global Shares Ireland, Ltd. in order to facilitate securities transactions for retail investors, solely as part of their employers’ stock incentive plans. Your account is a limited purpose brokerage account through which you may only sell or transfer stock obtained through your employer’s stock incentive plan. You decide whether and when to sell or transfer any company stock in your brokerage account. GSFS and its registered representatives do not provide any investment recommendations or investment advice or monitor your investments or account. There is no minimum amount required to open an account.

Conversation Starters. Ask your financial professional:
• 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?

WHAT FEES WILL I PAY?

It is important for you, the retail investor, to understand the fees and costs you will incur for your brokerage services, including how frequently they are assessed and the conflict of interest they create.
Brokerage services: GSFS charges a transaction-based fee to sell securities in your brokerage account.

You will pay fees and costs whether you make or lose money on your investments. Please make sure you understand what fees and costs you are paying by reviewing the fee schedule provided when you enrolled in your employer’s stock incentive plan.

Conversation Starters. Ask your financial professional:
• Help me understand how these fees and costs might affect my investments. If I give you $10,000 to invest, how much will go to fees and costs, and how much will be invested for me?

Your account does not allow for you to deposit funds or securities into your account or to invest in any other securities outside the scope of facilitating the exercise of Employee Stock Options if your employer’s plan includes them.

WHAT ARE YOUR LEGAL OBLIGATIONS TO ME WHEN PROVIDING RECOMMENDATIONS? HOW ELSE DOES YOUR FIRM MAKE MONEY AND WHAT CONFLICTS OF INTEREST DO YOU HAVE?

We do not provide any recommendations. The way we make money creates some conflicts with your interests. You should understand and ask us about these conflicts because they can affect the services we provide you. Here are some examples to help you understand what this means.

As noted above, GSFS charges a transaction-based fee to sell securities in your brokerage account. This means you are charged more when there are more trades in your account. GSFS and its affiliates also receive compensation from your employer to administer its stock incentive plan.

Conversation Starters. Ask your financial professional:
• How might your conflicts of interest affect me, and how will you address them?

HOW DO YOUR FINANCIAL PROFESSIONALS MAKE MONEY?

Our registered representatives receive a fixed salary, and in some cases, may receive a portion of commissions along with a year-end bonus based on both the Firm’s performance and their individual performance during the year

DO YOU OR YOUR FINANCIAL PROFESSIONALS HAVE LEGAL OR DISCIPLINARY HISTORY?

Conversation Starters. Ask your financial professional:
• As a financial professional, do you have any disciplinary history? For what type of conduct?
