More On Legal & Compliance

from The Advisor's Professional Library
  • Using Solicitors to Attract Clients Rule 206(4)-3 under the Investment Advisors Act establishes requirements governing cash payments to solicitors. The rule permits payment of cash referral fees to individuals and companies recommending clients to an RIA, but requires four conditions are first satisfied.
  • The Few and the Proud: Chief Compliance Officers CCOs make significant contributions to success of an RIA, designing and implementing compliance programs that prevent, detect and correct securities law violations.  When major compliance problems occur at firms, CCOs will likely receive regulatory consequences.    

In a blog posting for AdvisorOne, Knut Rostad of Rembert Pendleton Jackson and The Institute for the Fiduciary Standard questioned whether Elliot Weissbluth of HighTower Advisors misspoke when he claimed his firm had “zero conflicts of interest.”

In the interests of allowing you to judge for yourself, we present below a video from the Market Counsel Member Summit in September in Las Vegas that shows Rostad asking his question and Weissbluth answering it.
