IAA Standards of Practice
Since its founding in 1937, the Investment Adviser Association has prescribed certain principles of conduct for investment advisers. Over the years, many of these principles have been used by Congress and the Securities and Exchange Commission as the basis for legislation and regulations governing the conduct of investment advisers and by the United States Supreme Court in defining the standards of fiduciary conduct applicable to all investment advisers.
Reading through the IAA Standards of Practice may help investors understand the fiduciary principles of conduct endorsed by members of the IAA. For more information, please download our IAA Standards Of Practice brochure, or go to the IAA Standards of Practice page.
