Residential Mortgage Loan Report

Securities and Exchange Commission Initiative
For credit unions that have SEC-registered investment advisers, the agency has announced that its Office of Compliance Inspections and Examinations (OCIE) is launching an initiative directed at investment advisers that have never been examined—focusing on those that have been registered with the SEC for three or more years.

These examinations will concentrate on the advisers' compliance programs, filings and disclosure, marketing, portfolio management, and safekeeping of client assets.
