The Adviser Launch Process

What is the Adviser Launch Process?

When working with you through our Adviser Launch Process, we have three goals mind:

1. Efficiency

We understand that our efficiency is beneficial to both the investment adviser and United Atlantic Legal Services. The more we understand about your business early in the process, the more efficient we will be during the investment adviser registration process.

2. Transparency

Ensuring that you understand where you are at in the investment adviser registration process at all times is a constant priority for United Atlantic Legal Services. We clearly explain the process, help identify potential roadblocks and work closely with you to ensure that filings are made correctly and timely. Communication is key.

3. Tailored Solutions

Each investment adviser is different, and we work to ensure that your business is accurately reflected throughout the investment adviser registration process. We do not provide cookie-cutter services, but rather, United Atlantic Legal Services follows its holistic, highly tailored Adviser Launch Process designed to meet your specific business needs.

United Atlantic Legal Services would love the opportunity to work with you and your firm during its launch. We have the expertise and experience to navigate all types of investment advisers through the registration process and we look forward to learning more about you and your firm.
