Silver Oak Advisory Group is a Registered Investment Advisor (RIA) regulated by the Securities and Exchange Commission. The RIA registration form is called an ADV and it consists of three parts:
Part 1 requires information about the investment advisor's business, ownership, clients, employees, business practices, affiliations, and any disciplinary events of the advisor or its employees. Part 1 is organized in a check-the-box, fill-in-the-blank format. The SEC reviews the information from this part of the form to process registrations and manage its regulatory and examination programs.
Part 2 (Part 2A and Part 2B) requires investment advisors to prepare narrative brochures written in plain English that contain information such as the types of advisory services offered, the advisor's fee schedule, disciplinary information, conflicts of interest, and the educational and business background of management and key advisory personnel of the advisor.
Part 3 is commonly known as the Client Relationship Summary (CRS) and provides general information about the firm in plain English. This summary is designed to assist retail investors with the process of deciding whether to establish an investment advisory or brokerage relationship, engage a particular firm or financial professional, or terminate or switch a relationship or specific service.
