May our experience be your guide


Our SEC compliance service consultants have 25 years of cumulative RIA compliance experience, managing issues, on both the adviser’s side and the consultant’s side. Jointly, our team has experience in:

  • SEC compliance
  • GIPS compliance and verification
  • SAS 70 (now known as SOC 1) policy and procedure audits

It is through this hands-on experience that our consultants have developed the skills of truly listening to client’s pain points, addressing their issues and concerns proactively, and applying the SEC rules and regulations to each firm. We understand that there is not a “one size fits all” solution and take into consideration the unique circumstances of each of our clients to apply the rules as practically as possible.
