An investment adviser bond is required by the State of Alaska as a prerequisite for any investment adviser to legally conduct business. The bond guarantees that the investment adviser will operate in accordance with the applicable government rules and regulations.
Investment advisers are required by State of Alaska statutes to obtain a bond.
A $35,000 surety bond is required if the adviser has custody of client funds or securities by the State of Alaska from a surety company authorized to conduct business in Alaska.
A $10,000 surety bond is required if the adviser has discretion over client funds or securities by the State of Alaska from a surety company authorized to conduct business in Alaska. The adviser has discretion even if they simply just trade among a family of mutual funds.
If you have both custody of and discretion over client funds and securities, you will need both the $35,000 and $10,000 surety bonds.
