Investment adviser bond cost
The Maine Department of Professional and Financial Regulation requires investment advisers to post $10,000 surety bonds to legally work within the state.
These bonds are subject to underwriting, which means the amount you’ll pay for your bond depends on a review of your personal credit report. With good credit clients could pay as low as $100 for their bond! Don’t let less-than-stellar credit stop you from getting the bond you need.
