Alaric Compliance Alert: SEC Exams on the Rise
The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) confirmed in its 2017 Agency Financial Report that it examined 15% of registrants this year – a 50% increase from just three years ago.

In this Alert, Preparing for an SEC Exam, Alaric provides some pointers on what to expect and steps to prepare and execute a successful examination.
