New regulation in the state of Massachusetts will now require investment adviser representatives registering with the state of Massachusetts for the first time to complete a criminal background check referred to as Criminal Offender Record Information (CORI) check. The Secretary of the Commonwealth, William Gavin, his office believes such CORI checks will serve to protect investors. Beginning January 1, 2014, each new application for registration as an investment adviser representative will be required to complete the CORI check and submit as part of their application to the state a CORI acknowledgement form to the Massachusetts Security Division as part of the application process.
