ACA Group, the Investment Adviser Association, and Yuter Compliance Consulting invite you to participate in the 2024 Investment Management Compliance Testing Survey.

This survey, now in its 19th year, gathers anonymous information from U.S. investment advisers of all types and sizes for the purpose of reporting on industry trends. Your participation in this year’s survey will assist in providing valuable information to the investment adviser compliance community. Moreover, you will gain access to a variety of testing strategies that you can put to practical use at your own firm.

The survey will remain open through Friday, May 17, 2024.

This year’s survey covers the following timely, high-focus topics:

  • Off-Channel Communications
  • Code of Ethics, Gifts and Entertainment, and Political Contributions
  • Anti-Money Laundering
  • Advertising and the Marketing Rule
  • Private Fund Oversight
  • Artificial Intelligence and Predictive Analytics
  • Trend Update: "Hot” Compliance Topics

Those who complete the survey will receive complimentary access to the survey results webcast on June 26th, 2024 at 12pm ET / 9am PT.

Please note, this survey is open to compliance professionals at SEC-registered investment advisers. We ask that only one person per firm complete the survey. If you are not your firm’s Chief Compliance Officer (CCO), please check with your CCO before completing the survey to avoid duplicative responses. The survey should take approximately 15 to 25 minutes to complete.

As a reminder, this survey is conducted on a “blind” basis so that all participants  remain anonymous. You will not be required to enter your identity, nor the identity of your firm. Moreover, all individual responses to the survey will be held strictly confidential and will not be revealed to any third party.
