  2. To open a Regular Account, print and complete the New Account Application (non-IRA), or for legal entities, print and complete the Entity Account Application and Certification of Beneficial Owners (non-IRA).  Please refer to the Cost Basis Reference Guide for any questions regarding selecting a cost basis method.  Mail the application form with your check made payable to the Greenspring Fund to the address shown below in step #4.  If you are a financial intermediary as defined by Rule 22c-2, please download and complete the Shareholder Information Agreement and include it with your application. You may review this list for those financial intermediaries which currently have an agreement in place with the Fund’s distributor.

    You can also make an initial investment by wiring funds to U.S. Bank, N.A. A fee may be charged by U.S. Bank for this service. Before wiring your funds, a completed New Account Application is required. You can mail or overnight deliver your application to U.S. Bank, and upon receipt, an account will be established for you. It is necessary to obtain the new account number as it is part of the instructions to send the wire.
