And what is a Municipal Advisor?:
The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 expanded the MSRB’s jurisdiction to include the regulation of municipal advisors.
The Dodd-Frank Act requires all municipal advisors, broadly defined as including financial advisors, guaranteed investment contract brokers, third-party marketers, placement agents, solicitors finders and certain swap advisors that provide municipal advisory services, to be registered both with the MSRB and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). A list of MSRB-registered municipal advisors is available here.
The SEC has a temporary registration rule in place until September 30, 2013 for municipal advisors as it finalizes its interpretation of who qualifies as a “municipal advisor” under Dodd-Frank.
