C ) Investment advisers
D ) Issuers

See Answer

An officer of a company that wishes to register shares in a State in a “non-issuer” distribution, would rely on which registration procedure?

A ) Registration By Filing
B ) Registration By Qualification
C ) Registration By Coordination
D ) Registration By Administration

See Answer

Answer: A

Rationale: Registration by Filing is the method commonly used by "non-issuers" to offer shares in the State. As an example, an officer of a company holds unregistered shares of that company. If the company has registered shares outstanding, and is current in its SEC filings, the officer can sell the shares under SEC Rule 144, which registers the shares federally. To register the shares in the State, the officer would use the Registration by Filing procedure, since it is the simplest registration method.


Which of the following is a TRUE statement about managed wrap accounts? The customer is charged:

A ) A single annual fee based on total assets in the account for account transactions and maintenance
B ) A commission for each transaction performed
C ) A commission for each recommendation that results in a transaction
D ) Both a commission on each transaction performed and an annual maintenance fee based on total assets in the account

See Answer

Answer: A

Rationale: Wrap accounts are a type of customer account, where all services performed by the broker are "wrapped" into a single account; and a single annual fee based as a percentage of assets under management is charged. There is no commission charge for each transaction performed in such an account; all services are covered in the single "wrap" fee.

See Answer
