Why do I need this bond?
The Department of Commerce requires investment advisers to provide a $25,000 surety bond unless the applicant has no custody of or discretionary authority over client assets and has $100,000 in net capital. This bond is mandated by the State for the protection of consumers and serves as a guarantee that advisers will not take part in any kind of fraudulent activity, dishonesty or misrepresentation as outlined by the Minnesota Securities Act.
What’s the fine print?
Minnesota investment adviser surety bonds are continuous until canceled, and the surety must give the state written notice at least 30 days prior to cancellation.
The principal’s (adviser’s) signature must be witnessed by a licensed notary.
