Commissioner Announces IARD System Fee Waiver for Investment Adviser Firms
Reduced System Fees Reinstated for Investment Adviser Agents
The Commissioner, in conjunction with the North American Securities Administrators Association, Inc., has announced the waiver of Investment Adviser Registration Depository (IARD) system fees for investment adviser firms and the reinstatement of substantially reduced initial set-up and annual system fees paid by investment adviser agents (IARs). For 2013, the initial IARD set-up and renewal fee will be $10 for investment adviser agents.
