October 5, 2016

Sahil Khetani, Account Services Associate, and Kassi Conley, Client Service Administrator, recently passed their Series 7 exams, an essential license for a securities representative. The Series 7 exam, also known as the General Securities Representative Qualification Examination, assesses the candidate’s knowledge of corporate securities sales, municipal securities, investment company securities, variable annuities, direct participation programs, options and government securities.

Individuals who want to sell any type of securities must pass the Series 7 exam. The Financial Industry Regulation Authority (FINRA) administers the exam, which is comprised of 260 questions.

We are proud of Sahil and Kassi for their achievements! On to the Series 63…
