The Oyster Difference:

Prior to beginning registration, Oyster can help you weigh your options and benefits when opening an investment advisor versus a broker-dealer. Oyster does not have a one-size-fits-all approach to registration; we customize manuals and policies and procedures to fit each firm’s business lines, personnel and resources. Oyster will work within your timelines and tailor our services to accommodate your needs. After registration, Oyster has many talented and qualified consultants who can serve as your permanent or temporary Chief Compliance Officer, or simply continue to provide you with compliance support and guidance.
