Types of Financial Assets 


The Parris Group makes contact with legal owners of property when our extensive auditing process concludes that an industry entity is holding financial assets. In most cases the property is being held due to the inability to locate and confirm the legal owner(s) of the assets.     

Through establishing and building long-term professional relationships with the major industries across the United States, The Parris Group has the upper edge of networking with many divisions of each industry. With the advantage of the ability to access many other tools available only to the licensed Private Investigation field in the securities industry, The Parris Group has many advantages over other firms in that we bring integrity, safety and a reputation of honesty to all clients and allies we work with.

Your assets may be held by an entity in any one of these industries:

  • Banking

  • Insurance

  • Brokerage

  • Public Corporations

  • Mutual Funds

  • ​Old Stocks

  • Oil & Gas

  • Healthcare

  • Utilities

  • Transportation & Logistics

  • Colleges & Universities

  • Telecommunications

  • Retail

All industries holding financial assets have state statutes and federal compliance laws they must follow while handling the assets. The laws dictate what happens to the property if the legal owner(s) are not found within a certain dormancy period. When the dormancy period has passed, the property may then be forwarded to the state or possibly a federal agency, depending on the type of property and the location that the holder is located.  

The state then uses your money to invest and collects the interest. Should you be blessed to find the property, you will then have to work through a myriad of paperwork loopholes to thoroughly prove your ownership of the property. And guess what? The state keeps the interest on the investment of your money! If you have relocated out of the state where the property lies, or the property belonged to an ancestor, your chances of being united with your legally owned property is very small.  Please realize that 20% of property is actually received by the legal owners. 

The Parris Group works proactively to track down the legal owner(s) of the asset during this dormant time period to ensure that no one receives the financial assets except the legal owner(s).  

Whether you, or a family member is contacted by The Parris Group, or by someone else, please be alert and do your due diligence before signing any document. We highly recommend to hire an attorney to review the documents since legal documents can be hard to understand, most especially to someone who is not educated or knowledgeable in the legal field.  If you cannot afford to hire an attorney, you can seek information about the person or company who has made contact by engaging in internet research. "Google" is a reliable search engine that can assist you and take you down many beneficial paths of research.
