The Securities and Exchange Commission updated Friday its frequently asked questions guidance on Form CRS, which advisors and broker-dealers must file with the agency by Tuesday.
Along with details on where to file Form CRS, the FAQ provides updates on questions related to broker-dealers as well as dual registrants.
The agency states, for instance, that a registered broker-dealer with no retail investors is not required to file a Form CRS.
Another question asked about dual registrant filing requirements.
Question: Firm A is an investment adviser that is not affiliated with Firm B, a broker-dealer. Some financial professionals are dually licensed as investment adviser representatives with Firm A and as registered representatives with Firm B. Would both Firm A and Firm B be required to deliver their relationship summary to retail investors seeking or obtaining services from these dually licensed financial professionals?
