What is an RIA Bond? Most states require you to have an Investment Advisor Surety Bond to ensure you perform your advisor responsibilities ethically and responsibly. While a surety bond is an insurance product, it works more as a line of credit. A bond is a three-party contract between you, the obligee and the surety.
- The principal – As the investment advisor, you are the principal of the bond.
- The obligee – The government agency requiring you to submit a surety bond.
- The surety – This party issues the bond. They also investigate and settle claims made against the bond.
