REGULATION OF INVESTMENT ADVISORS

REGULATION OF INVESTMENT ADVISORS BY US SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION

Summary

The Uniform Securities Act, as written by Congress, specifically protects a publisher’s right to freedom of speech as provided by the US Constitution’s First Amendment. Thus, expressly excluded from the definition of "investment adviser" in federal law is "the publisher of bona fide newspaper, news magazine or business or financial publication of general and regular circulation."

Although the current phraseology is shorter, its meaning, as interpreted by the SEC, has not changed from the more verbose phraseology of earlier revisions that read: "a publisher of any bona fide newspaper, news column, newsletter, news magazine, or business or financial publication or service, whether communicated in hard copy form, or by electronic means, or otherwise, that does not consist of the rendering of advice on the basis of the specific investment situation of each client."

In 1985 the U.S. Supreme Court heard Lowe v. SEC - 472 U.S. 181 and vindicated Lowe based on the law’s clearly intended exclusion of newsletter publishers from the definition of "investment adviser."
