Why are these financial statement filings required?
Oregon Revised Statutes 59.195 – requires financial statements of investment adviser firms to be filed with the director as a way to protect investors and the public interest by maintaining stability in the financial markets.
Grounds for denying, suspending, revoking or imposing condition or restriction on license … ORS 59.205 – authorizes the Director to suspend or revoke a license of a state investment adviser if the licensee is insolvent.
What is changing?
The Division of Financial Regulation is now accepting firm prepared financial statements that are not compiled by a certified public accountant when the information is provided on a form approved by the director. This should reduce the costs of hiring a CPA to prepare compiled financial statements for state investment adviser firms while providing adequate information to the Division to review each firm.
