New York Investor Protection Bureau

New York Investor Protection Bureau office – New York, New York

Under new New York IAR licensing rule, registration is required for investment adviser representatives, solicitors, principals and supervisors of New York state registered investment adviser firms.  Additionally, the rule requires registration of investment adviser representatives of SEC-registered investment adviser firms if the investment adviser representative conducts advisory activities from a place of business in New York or holds out to the public a New York location at which the investment adviser representative provides investment advisory services, solicits, meets with, or otherwise communicates with clients.  For more specific details about the IAR licensing requirements, please refer to New York’s final adopted rule.

This new sample compliance section, WSP/CoE Section Update – IAR Licensing in New York, includes both a version for a state registered investment adviser firm and another version for a SEC registered investment adviser firm.  This investment adviser policy and procedure, WSP/CoE Section Update – IAR Licensing in New York , is available to our Annual Compliance Program clients in the Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum packages or can be purchased on a la carte basis for $250.
