For those registered with the state of California, be advised of a new requirement. The DBO (Department of Business Oversight) sent out a letter to all RIAs. The new requirement is that each RIA must set up a designated email address for specifically receiving communications from the DBO. Deadline for compliance is January 4, 2014.
Here is the link to the new order: http://www.dbo.ca.gov/Laws_&_Regs/2013_DBO_Communications_Order.pdf
In the letter is a username and password you will need in order to provide the DBO with this email address.
