Investment Adviser Contracts. By Hugo Mayer Office of the Kansas Securities Commissioner. IA Contracts.
Office of the Kansas Securities Commissioner
For purposes of training, we will cover the requirements governing IA contracts under NASAA Model Rules. We will also cover other standard contractual provisions commonly associated with IA contracts. You are reminded as always to refer to your individual state requirements governing investment adviser contracts when conducting examinations in your home state.
The IA contract should be reviewed for its readability and use of plain English. Your respective agency may not have specific rules addressing the content of a contract, but nothing prevents you from suggesting or negotiating changes to a contract. Firm’s are more willing to adopt changes while in the registration process.
