Disclosures
  1. Many states have requirements that advisors register if they have any paying clients. Some allow advisors to have a de minimis number of paying clients. The rules vary from state to state. For example, Nevada has informed us that it requires that Nevada-domiciled persons be licensed as Investment Advisors to engage in this program per NRS 90.330. You must review the rules of your state and those of your clients to determine if you need to register.
