That's funny +Ron Pechtimaldjian......one of the quotes in the article:  "Advisors hear stories about RIA audits and all the work involved with audits, which starts to scare them". 

If Advisors have nothing to hide, keep their books/records in order, and every piece of client documentation up to date (they're supposed to) then audits are NOTHING to fear.

Its those advisors who are careless who might be more fearful. Deficiency letters are given to the best firms, but the regulators give the advisory firm time to address and fix any deficiencies.

Cheers from NYC +Ron Pechtimaldjian & +ThinkAdvisor team!
