The Securities and Exchange Commission’s Office of Compliance Inspections and Examinations is launching an initiative directed at investment advisors that have never been examined.

The initiative will focus on advisors who have been registered with the SEC for three or more years. The office previously announced that examining these advisors is a priority in 2014.

The examinations will concentrate on the advisors’ compliance programs, filings and disclosure, marketing, portfolio management and safekeeping of client assets.
