Advisor Background Check

What is a Form ADV?

Form ADV is similar to a background check for Advisors. It is a required submission to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) or the state they are registered in. This is where the Investment Advisor specifies their investment style, assets under management (AUM), key officers of the firm, etc.. The form must be updated annually and available as public record for companies managing assets for a fee. Also, if any past disciplinary actions or fines have been taken against the Advisor, this must be noted on their Form ADV.

In some of the recent Ponzi Schemes, prosecutors allege the advisory firms were unregistered. Most advisors will offer a current Form ADV to any potential client early in the marketing process. In fact, investors should be immediately cautious of an advisor that does not freely offer the form upon request. A potential client should also verify that the form ADV has been filed with the SEC.
