Purpose of Your Surety Bond Requirement
The surety bond serves as a financial guarantee that you will act in a proper fiduciary capacity as an investment adviser or broker dealer. The bond protects against act of misfeasance and malfeasance, as well as fraud, and misrepresentation.
As principal of this bond, you must indemnify the surety if any claims were paid against your bond; however, the aggregate amount of such claims will not exceed the amount of the bond, excluding any attorney fees and costs, if applicable.
