Over the past six years, the SEC has been on an examination streak, boosting the number of audits by an incredible 137%, according to their 2018 fiscal year annual report. In 2018, the SEC’s Office of Compliance Inspections and Examinations (OCIE) audited 17% of RIAs (2,312 firms), which is more than double the 8% audit rate in 2012. One area that regulators have been paying special attention to is billing practices. The SEC has issued multiple letters stressing that billing operations must now be held to higher standards. The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) has also chimed in, demanding that industry participants focus on providing fee transparency to clients.
