How much does an investment adviser bond in Oregon cost?

The Oregon Department of Consumer & Business Services requires investment advisers to post a $10,000 surety bond. These bonds are subject to underwriting, which means the amount an applicant will pay is directly related to his or her credit report. With an excellent report, applicants could pay as little as $100 for their bond!

Why do I need this bond?

Investment adviser bonds in Oregon exist to protect customers from any fraudulent activities performed by investment advisers. All rules and regulations stated in the Oregon Revised Statutes Chapter 59 must be adhered to. Some of these laws include:

  • acting honestly and legally when dealing with purchases or sales of securities
  • only acting as an adviser if qualified
  • delivering securities to necessary persons in a timely manner

If an adviser is found guilty of committing fraud and a valid claim is made against the bond, the surety will cover any damages up to the full bond amount. The principal (investment adviser), in turn, must compensate the surety for any damages paid out.

What’s the fine print?

Oregon investment adviser surety bonds are continuous until canceled. If the surety decides to cancel this bond, written notice must be given to the state at least 30 days prior to cancellation.

When filling out the bond form, be sure to use your full legal name as it appears on your license.
