Rules Surrounding Outside Business Activities: Investment Advisers


While many rules are straightforward and seem simple to follow, others carry with them so much room for interpretation that they are often violated. Outside business activities rules fall into this latter category. To assist you, this course discusses outside business activities rules for the investment adviser, together with scenarios describing cases where broker-dealers have fallen short of full compliance. Please note this course does not meet the requirements of the NASAA IAR CE Model Rule that has been adopted by multiple states. This course does meet Firm Element requirements.
