SEC Threatening Advisors on Disclosures

(Washington)

A couple of weeks ago we ran a piece quoting the SEC saying that it was trying to get advisors who had violated client disclosure rules to come forward themselves. The promise was that if they voluntarily came forward they would be treated with a much lighter hand. Well, the SEC has showed the other side of that coin this week, saying "Those of you who counsel investment advisors, we hope you will counsel them to participate in the program … If not, we promise that if we find them later we will punish them more severely".

FINSUM : The SEC is really going to throw its weight around on this issue and it seems like advisors who have broken the rules would be well advised to come forward.
