Protecting Your Firm Through Risk Management

You have successfully formed your investment advisory firm and your business is up and running. Now you want to ensure that your firm remains in compliance with the SEC, FINRA and state regulators so that, in the event a regulatory agency DOES come knocking, you are ready to handle the examination.

It is crucial that your Firm adopts written policies and procedures that mitigate your risk down the road. For example, you should author a code of ethics that is customized to your business and establish best execution, trade allocation, and other practices to create consistency in how your business is conducted.

Additionally, you should develop succession plans, business continuity responses, cybersecurity protocols, and confidentiality, privacy and intellectual property protections so that your firm is prepared for, and protected from, the unexpected.
