Quadrant Regulatory Group LLC specializes in supporting compliance efforts for SEC and state Registered Investment Advisers, private funds, and family offices.
We are committed to providing clients with only quality, customized compliance consulting services, and products. Our professionals consist of former regulators and compliance officers who have extensive experience with managing investment adviser compliance programs.
SEA Rule 206(4)-7 requires advisers to conduct an annual review to determine whether the firm’s policies & procedures are reasonably designed and implemented to prevent violation of federal securities laws. The review should consider any compliance matters that arose during the previous year, any changes in the business activities of the firm or its affiliates, and any changes in the Advisers Act or applicable regulations that might suggest a need to revise the policies or procedures. Quadrant has extensive experience in performing the reviews required pursuant to Rule 206(4)-7 under the Advisers Act. Our reports are tailored to address the specific risks of your firm.
Are you prepared for a visit from the SEC or state regulators? Our regulatory professionals will perform a mock examination to ensure that your compliance program is able to meet the requirements of a regulatory examination. We employ the same techniques regulators utilize when conducting our examinations. Our mock examination will not only provide you with an indication of your readiness for a regulatory examination but will also provide recommendations to enhance your compliance program.
We provide expert assistance in registering your new Investment Adviser with the SEC or state securities authorities in an expeditious manner:
Prepare and file Form ADVs and the Supplemental Brochure
Draft tailored Written Supervisory Procedures
Create the Code of Ethics and Business Continuity Plan
Serve as regulatory liaison
Solving Compliance Challenges
Our experience as former regulators has not distorted our understanding of how business should be run in a financial marketplace but has given us the ability to know what regulators are looking for and the compliance challenges faced by our clients. We are dedicated to working with you to achieve compliance with the rules and regulations of all applicable regulatory bodies.
We have extensive experience in creating, reviewing, and amending Written Supervisory Procedures and Compliance Manuals. The procedures we will design for you will be customized to reflect your actual business model and processes, and address all current regulatory requirements. We will amend the procedures on an ongoing basis to reflect new regulatory initiatives and changes to your business model.
