How is Stash regulated?
Stash is as an investment adviser registered with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The SEC is a federal agency that regulates the financial securities market, including exchanges, brokerage firms, and investment funds.
The SEC requires financial services companies including Stash to act in the best interests of their customers. It obligates financial services companies to comply with federal regulations, and requires them to provide customers with clear information about potential investments. It also guards against fraud and deception by financial services firms. (Note: Registration with the SEC does not imply a certain level of skill or training.)
You can find our more about Stash on the SEC’s website at: adviserinfo.sec.gov, or simply click here to find out more about Stash and it’s registration with the SEC.
