Burge Moderates PIABA Webinar on Understanding the Investment Adviser Disclosure Requirement

Fishman Haygood attorney Jason Burge moderated the Public Investors Advocate Bar Association (PIABA) webinar, “What’s in a PBJ?: Understanding Investment Adviser Disclosure Requirements,” this week. Presented by the PIABA Bar Journal, speaker Courtney Werning discussed what SEC-registered and state-registered investment advisers are required to disclose on both the firm and the representative levels.

To help identify financial professionals with a history of misconduct, the SEC encourages investors to check an adviser’s background. Burge, a partner in the firm’s Litigation Section, asked Werning about the lax disclosure requirements for SEC-registered investment advisers, and the trend where of the top fee-only investment advisers do not disclose many disciplinary events, a detriment to both the investing public and regulators.

Burge is the incoming editor in chief of the PIABA Bar Journal.
