Contact us for a quote to prepare your Form CRS

In June 2019, the SEC adopted requirements (SEC Release 34-86032) for registered investment advisers, broker-dealers, and dual-registrants that do business with retail investors to file Form CRS (customer relationship summary). Form CRS is intended to inform retail investors about:

  • The types of client/customer relationships and services the firm offers;
  • Fees, costs, conflicts of interest, and required standard of conduct associated with those relationships and services;
  • Whether the firm and its financial professionals currently have reportable legal or disciplinary history;
  • How to obtain additional information about the firm.

The deadline for firms to be compliant with Form CRS is June 30, 2020.
