CFTC Smartcheck Tool for Investors
From the blurb for this site:
Checking out someone you are considering as a financial adviser can be daunting. The U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), has launched a new tool to help. SmartCheck is a campaign that connects investors to tools to check the registration, license and disciplinary history of certain financial professionals.
This collection of tools allows the responsible investor to confirm the credentials of investment professionals, uncover any past disciplinary history, and stay ahead of scam artists with news and alerts.
In addition to CFTC databases, SmartCheck connects you to FINRA's BrokerCheck, the Securities and Exchange Commission EDGAR Database and lists 6 Steps to Smarter Investments.
