1. Every registered broker-dealer and investment adviser shall make and keep accounts, correspondence, memoranda, papers, books, and other records as the administrator may prescribe by rule or order, except as provided by section 15 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 in the case of a broker-dealer, and section 222 of the Investment Advisers Act of 1940 in the case of an investment adviser. All records required, with respect to an investment adviser, shall be preserved for a period as the administrator prescribes by rule or order.
2. With respect to investment advisers, the administrator may require that certain information be furnished or disseminated to clients or prospective clients as necessary or appropriate in the public interest or for the protection of investors and advisory clients. To the extent determined in the administrator's discretion, information furnished to clients or prospective clients of an investment adviser that would be in compliance with the Investment Advisers Act of 1940 and the rules under that Act may be used in whole or in partial satisfaction of this requirement.
3. Every registered broker-dealer and investment adviser shall file such financial reports as the administrator prescribes by rule or order, not to exceed the limitations provided in section 15 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 in the case of a broker-dealer, and section 222 of the Investment Advisers Act of 1940 in the case of an investment adviser.
4. If the information contained in any document filed with the administrator is or becomes inaccurate or incomplete in any material respect, the registrant or federal covered adviser shall file a correcting amendment promptly if the document is filed with respect to a registrant, or when such amendment is required to be filed with the securities and exchange commission, if the document is filed with respect to a federal covered adviser, unless notification of the correction has been given under section 502.301, subsection 2.
5. The administrator may make examinations, within or without this state, of the business and records of each registered broker-dealer or investment adviser, at the times and in the scope as the administrator determines. The examinations may be made without prior notice to the broker- dealer or investment adviser. The administrator may copy all records the administrator believes are necessary to conduct the examination. The expense reasonably attributable to an examination shall be paid by the broker-dealer or investment adviser whose business is examined, but the expense so payable shall not exceed an amount which the administrator by rule prescribes. For the purpose of avoiding unnecessary duplication of examinations, the administrator may cooperate with securities administrators of other states, the securities and exchange commission, and any national securities exchange or national securities association registered under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. The administrator shall not make public the information obtained in the course of examinations, except when a duty under this chapter requires the administrator to take action regarding a broker-dealer or investment adviser or to make the information available to one of the agencies specified in this section, or except when the administrator is called as a witness in a criminal or civil proceeding.
