ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., Jan. 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Investment Protection Bureau has started a nationwide due diligence check on all Financial Adviser's in our network. Financial Adviser's will be asked to submit current documents showing certifications, licensing, education and responding to customer complaints filed throughout the year. Because of the nature of this massive roll out of our new policies many Financial Advisers will see their National Rating lowered considerably which will affect their ratings in the Google search results. Investment Protection Bureau new requirements for Financial Advisers will go into effect on February 1st, 2014 and will effect over 26,000 Financial Advisers throughout the United States.

We are here to protect the integrity of the financial industry due to the fact that a number of individuals have attempted to tear it down. The Investment Protection Bureau is the largest independent regulator for all securities firms doing business in the United States. Our chief role is to protect investors by maintaining the fairness of the U.S. capital markets.

Your choice of a financial adviser should be the result of sound research. You must locate appropriate candidates, understand their credentials, check references, and conduct interviews in which you ask the right questions. It can be a daunting task. So daunting, in fact, that many otherwise savvy people have cut corners -- opting instead to rely on recommendations from family and friends, chance meetings, or advertisements. Sadly, this has left many people unsatisfied with their advisers and dubious of the value of financial services in general. However, trust that spending the time to hire the right financial adviser will make all the difference in turning a plan for your financial future into permanent wealth and comfort and that's where the Investment Protection Bureau comes in to make sure you find the best financial adviser for your future.
