The Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC) announced yesterday the launch of IIROC AdvisorReport, described as a "resource to help investors learn the background of advisors who are currently approved to work at IIROC-regulated firms." AdvisorReport will provide investors with online access to information on, among other things, a current registrant's educational background, employment history with IIROC member firms since 2003 and disciplinary history. AdvisorReport replaces IIROC's Member Firm/Registrant Info Service launched in 2003. According to IIROC, AdvisorReport provides improvements over the previous service, as it is easier to use, faster and provides more information in one place.
