What are Investment Advisor Surety Bonds?

Investment Advisor Surety Bonds are required by most states in order to guarantee that financial and investment advisors comply with the state’s respective rules and regulations governing this license. While definitions may vary slightly by state, these advisors are broadly defined as individual who for compensation provide advice to others regarding the investment of funds or the creation of wealth to be needed in the future, and who present themselves as qualified to perform these functions. Such advisors clearly have a fiduciary duty to their clients.

Questions about Investment Advisor Surety Bonds

How much does an Investment Advisor Surety Bond cost?

Annual premium is determined based on owner personal credit. Owners with strong credit are typically approved between 1% to 3% of the bond amount.

If the owner has bad credit, or significant past due items on their credit report, annual premium typically ranges between 5% to 15% of the bond amount. For most states, we're able to keep our high risk programs below 7.5%.

What is a Blue Sky Bond?

While closely related to Financial Advisor Bonds, Blue Sky Bonds are required more specifically to regulate the sale of securities governed by Blue Sky Laws. These bonds guarantee that security dealers do not sell fradulent securities.

Will my Investment Advisor Surety Bond work for multiple states?

Unfortunately, no. Each bond is filed with a specific state, and issued on their specific bond form. To ensure compliance, you'll need to check with each state that you plan on conducting business in to see if they have a bond requirement as part of the license application.
