Funds and Investment Compliance Consulting

In the securities and investment industry, it’s critical to provide the best possible service to your clients while remaining in compliance with SEC and state regulations. The requirements and demands imposed by regulators make it difficult to do what you do best: delivering exceptional advice and service to your clients. That’s why we work with RIAs and brokerage firms to ensure the highest level of compliance. Our team includes experienced compliance professionals from the securities industry who provide onsite assistance to keep your advisers on track with registration and reporting, and we’ll even conduct mock exams and onsite training. With Warner, you’ll have the guidance and partnership you need, tailored the way you want.
Some of the services our clients use on a regular basis, include, but are not limited to:
  • Mock Exams (Advanced or Standard)
    Mock exams are tailored to each firm’s specific needs. The advanced mock exam includes a review of the organization’s books, records and written compliance procedures. The standard mock exam includes a review of SEC hot topics.
  • Mock Exam with Execution of Recommendations
    This service includes the advanced or standard mock exam services listed above, plus corrective steps to address weaknesses and deficiencies within compliance programs.
  • Corrective Action Review Exams
    We assist the advisory firm by verifying corrective measures taken in response to an SEC examination deficiency letter are appropriate, effective and comply with the adviser’s written response to the regulator.
  • Mock Exam of Branch Offices
    We’ll conduct onsite and/or document review of branch office records to determine compliance with the firm’s written compliance procedures.

    As an extension of your business, we’ll prepare registration and disclosure documents, responses to regulators, assist in the development of your firm’s risk matrix, create a compliance calendar and establish a journal for recordkeeping requirements.

    Customize your educational needs by working with our compliance consultants to devise training sessions on Code of Ethics and Regulation S-ID or around your topic of choice. We’ll come to you to make this efficient and fun!
  • Sub-Adviser / Vendor Due Diligence
