Registration rules for municipal advisors
Source: Securities and Exchange Commission
Municipalities that issue these securities frequently rely on advisors, who help to decide among other things how and when to issue the securities and how to invest the proceeds from the sales. In turn, these advisors receive fees for the services they provide.
To ensure compliance with standards for training, qualification, or conduct, including the treatment of conflicts of interest a municipal advisor is required to permanently register with the SEC if it provides advice on the issuance of municipal securities or about certain "investment strategies" or municipal derivatives.
