News & Publications

Staying informed is key to staying ahead. Through a number of electronic, online and traditional hard-copy publications, the IAA provides its members with news, information and insight designed to strengthen their business operations, compliance programs and understanding of industry trends.

IAA Today

IAA Newsletter

IAA Today, our online newsletter, keeps members up to date on developments in regulatory and legislative actions and proposals affecting advisers. Its Compliance Corner column provides an in depth look at timely compliance issues, while its Takeaways and Guest columns focus on business and operational issues. We also provide members with a monthly version of our newsletter content in downloadable PDF form.


Member Alerts

The IAA informs members immediately of significant developments affecting them through our Member Alerts, delivered quickly via email. And four times a year, we summarize recent news and IAA activities on our members’ behalf in the electronic IAA Quarterly Update.

YouTube Channel, Twitter, LinkedIn

YouTube Channel, Twitter, LinkedIn

We regularly post videos from IAA conferences on the IAA YouTube Channel and communicate frequently with members through social media, especially on Twitter and LinkedIn.


Evolution Revolution

The IAA’s signature annual publication, Evolution Revolution, analyzes data submitted by the more than 12,000 SEC-registered investment advisers on Form ADV to provide a comprehensive picture of the state of our industry.


Compliance Testing Survey

Every year, the IAA and ACA Compliance Group survey CCOs about their top compliance concerns and their compliance testing practices. The Compliance Testing Survey documents the current hot compliance topics and provides advisory firms with information for benchmarking their compliance practices against other firms.


Year in Review

A summary of the year’s significant legislative and regulatory developments, along with the IAA’s advocacy efforts, conferences and educational efforts, are reported in our annual Year in Review.
