The Margin Between State And SEC Regulation Widens To Give RIAs More Flexibility


It turns out that the SEC is letting advisory firms with assets under management between $90 million and $110 million choose their regulator.


This gives these firms some vital flexibility when it comes to market-driven AUM fluctuations in particular.


Otherwise, if the $100 million limit mandated by Dodd-Frank was strictly enforced, RIAs on the edge could find themselves having to switch from SEC to state regulation after a bad market day, only to switch back once the markets recover.
