Investment Adviser Registration Depository (IARD)

Investment Adviser Registration Depository (IARD)

The Investment Adviser Registration Depository (IARD) functions as a one-stop electronic filing system for investment advisers. All SEC-registered investment advisers and investment advisers applying to register with the SEC must file Form ADV and amendments to Form ADV electronically through IARD. Most states also require investment advisers registered in their states to submit filings electronically through IARD, although some states accept paper forms.

You can view a copy of an investment adviser firm's electronic Form ADV on the SEC's Investment Adviser Public Disclosure (IAPD) website.
