Investment Advisers: What You Need to Know Before Choosing One

The first line of defense that South Carolina investors have against fraud is education. Learning more about securities and the laws regulating their sale allows investors to safeguard their transactions and investments and to report possible violations of the Securities Act.

The Securities Division has a wealth of information to help South Carolina investors make informed decisions in choosing reputable brokers and advisers. The Division maintains or has access to databases of individuals and firms and can quickly tell you their status. The staff of the Securities Division is also available to provide information by telephone (803-734-9916).
