Although the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and most state securities regulators are already requiring the use of the new Form ADV Part 2 as part the application process for new investment advisors, the Colorado Division of Securities recently released a public notice stating that as of April 1, 2011 all new investment adviser applications must include the new narrative version of Form ADV Part 2.
However, the compliance date for when currently registered Colorado investment advisers must begin using the new Form ADV Part 2 was not included in Colorado’s public notice. To view the full public notice, click here.
