Series 65 License
If you are among the many educated individuals who are looking for a
career in investment services, earning your Series 65 license is a key
step in the process. This securities license is a requirement for any
investment professional to act as an advisor in most states, and
obtaining this license may be more difficult than you think. Earning
your Series 65 license requires obtaining a score of 68.5% or above,
and many educated individuals do not pass the test on their first
Preparation is Key
Any seasoned investment advisor will tell you that study and
discipline are key factors in determining whether you will obtain your
Series 65 license. You will need to demonstrate your ability to
successfully answer questions surrounding regulations, laws, and
ethics, in addition to your ability to analyze complex investments.
Over a third of the test is dedicated to concepts surrounding the
Uniform Securities Act, Securities Exchange Act of 1934, Investment
Advisers Act of 1940, and the Uniform Prudent Investors Act, so be
prepared. Remember, passing the Series 65 is a prerequisite to
receiving your license, and is not the license itself. In order to
obtain your license, you must file form U-4, pay a state fee, and pass
the background check as mandated.
Regardless of whether you are represented by a firm, you are eligible
to take the Series 65 exam. Your firm will file form U-4 to schedule
you for the exam, or you may file form U-10 and simply specify "Not
applicable," under the sponsorship section of the form. Once your
paperwork is filed, you have a 120-day window to take the exam. Call
