Compliance Bulletin 01-15: A TALE OF TWO VERTICALS

 In Compliance Bulletin, Compliance/ Risk Management, CRC Company Updates

The Differences Between Broker-Dealers and Investment Advisers compliance bulletin 01-15Over the past few years, we have discovered that many of our clients and prospects have taken a genuine interest and are often seeking information, trying to ascertain the benefits / issues that exist within the Broker-Dealer and Investment Adviser models. This includes, but is not limited to, regulatory requirements, commission / fee structures, infrastructure requirements, operational issues, fiduciary versus suitability standards, etc. Whether you operate within a Broker-Dealer or Investment Adviser – the basic operating premise must be the needs of the customer outweigh the needs of the firm / investment professional. Having said that, both models offer viable solutions and approaches to customers. However, as we all know – you can’t be all things to all people. There are certain activities an organization can only undertake within a broker-dealer entity (i.e., IPO’s, Secondary Offerings, M&A Advisory, Private Placements, etc.). Conversely, in order to receive a fee for providing advice to customers, an organization must be registered as an Investment Adviser. We hope you find this side-by-side analysis helpful and educational. As always, feel free to reach out with any questions, comments, etc. Happy Reading!
