What is Needed to Obtain My License or Registration?

Broker-dealer and investment adviser registration in Massachusetts is administered by the Registration Inspections, Compliance and Examinations (RICE). All individuals or firms offering or selling securities or providing investment advice within the Commonwealth must be registered unless an exemption is available. The objective of broker-dealer and investment adviser registration is to ensure that individuals and firms working with investors in the Commonwealth meet minimum acceptable standards of conduct, education, and financial solvency. RICE reviews all applications for registration of broker-dealers, agents, investment advisers, and investment adviser representatives and handles inspections to make sure the requirements of the Massachusetts Uniform Securities Act and Rules are met. Registrants must provide a background investigation, pass examinations on securities principles and state securities laws, and agree to meet record-keeping and disclosure requirements. Financial solvency, examinations results, criminal history, public opinion, and any evidence of past fraudulent business practices in the sale of securities are all considered in review of eligibility for registration.
