This course helps the candidate to prepare for and successfully pass the Uniform Investment Adviser Law Examination (Series 65). The Series 65 exam entitles the candidate to give investment advice and sell securities in those states that require Series 65 registration.
Designed for individuals who must satisfy state investment adviser requirements, the exam focuses on: federal securities law, the Uniform Securities Act, economics and analysis, investment vehicles, investment recommendations and strategies, ethics and legal guidelines for investment advisers, and unethical business practices of investment advisers.
Series 65 exam is required by most states for individuals who wish to act as investment advisers. This exam is waived by some states if the applicant has the CFP (Certified Financial Planner), the ChFC (Chartered Financial Consultant), APFS (Accredited Personal Financial Specialist), CFA (Chartered Financial Analyst), the CIC (Chartered Investment Counselor), or other designations or items as ruled by the (state) administrator.
In addition, this course features a myriad of practice quizzes by lesson to sharpen test-taking skills, as well as feedback rationale for each question that clarifies and improves retention.
