150 Questions for Your Compliance Program

Beyond the bravery needed to start a new RIA by the ChiefExecutive Officer (CEO), the unsung hero of a successful RIA is the ChiefCompliance Officer (CCO).  This role is key to ensure operations, client satisfaction, and the growth of the business.  

Before you scoff and suggest this statement is hyperbole, I implore you to peruse the list of questions the SEC would ask your CCO about your compliance program.  This list contains 150 questions. Yes, you read that correctly.  Could you as CEO answer these questions?

Now ask yourself – how does my CCO keep all of this information straight? How in the world do they organize information of such broad areas from AML, Conflicts of Interest, Trading, Suitability, and Books and Records Retention? Not to mention what would you do should your CCO leave tomorrow for business continuity?
