Are you aware of the recent SEC activity relating to investment advisers? The Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) is now looking into advisory firms’ liquidity risk management in current exams. In addition, the SEC’s Chicago regional office has sent out a sweep aimed at gathering data to determine how advisers are handling liquidity risk and the Boston office recently sent out a sweep to dig into firms’ whistleblower policies.
Knowing what is going on in the SEC exam program nationwide can help firms to be better prepared when their turn comes for an exam. If you have not had an exam recently, it’s a good idea to do a gap analysis or mock audit to make sure you are ready, from that first phone call throughout the entire audit process.
