California mandates dedicated email

On November 22, 2013, the California Department of Business Oversight ("DBO") issued an order to all advisors registered in California requiring a dedicated email address for communications with the Advisor.

By January 4, 2014, all advisory firms registered with the State of California must comply.

Here are the details

  • Email must be dedicated to compliance matters and cannot be used publicly. It can be an address of your choosing.
  • Email must be monitored daily. While we don't expect that they will communicate with you daily, they want to ensure timeline receipt and follow-up.
  • Account must be established to allow attachments.
  • Spam settings must be modified to allow emails from the state's domains ("@dbo.ca.gov" or "@service.govdelivery.com")

After configuring the account, you must complete an online form with the state at https://dbolicensee.secureprtportal.com. The DBO has mailed or email you a username and password.

The full text of the Order is available on the DBO website at http://dbo.ca.gov/Laws_&_Regs/2013_DBO_Communications_Order.pdf.

Please contact us if you have any questions or issues.

Thank you.
