Question

 

 

 

 

 

 

With mutual fund A shares, the price an investor pays is referred to as:
 
A. NAV
B. POP
C. ROA
D. LOI
 
Answer: B. Mutual fund A shares typically charge a front-end sales charge, also called a load, which is a percentage of the investment in the mutual fund. The front-end sales charge or load is included in the price per share an investor pays. The current share price of a mutual fund is referred to as the net asset value, or NAV. The share price including any sales charge is referred to as the public offering price, or POP. For example, a fund with a NAV of $15 and a 5% front-end load has a POP of $15.79. That is calculated by dividing the $15 NAV by .95 (1 minus the 5% load). ROA refers to rights of accumulation and LOI refers to letter of intent. Both ROA and LOI are ways investors can get a volume discount on the price of load mutual fund shares.

Series 54 Pilot: Solomon Voyage to Municipal Advisor Principal Exam

Solomon Exam Prep is excited to launch the first study guide to the new MSRB Series 54 Municipal Advisor exam.  Continue reading

Solomon Exam Prep is excited to launch the first study guide to the new MSRB Series 54 Municipal Advisor exam. 

According to Jeremy Solomon, president of Solomon Exam Prep, the Series 54 is a new qualifying exam for individuals who supervise or manage the municipal advisory activities of a municipal advisor firm and its associated persons. Individuals interested in taking the Series 54 pilot exam must have passed the Series 50 Municipal Advisor exam.

According to the MSRB, the permanent Series 54 exam will be available in late 2019, at which time individuals functioning in a municipal advisor principal capacity will have one year to take and pass the permanent Series 54. Anyone who passes the pilot Series 54 will qualify as a municipal advisor principal and will not have to take the permanent Series 54.

The Solomon Exam Prep Guide to the Series 54 covers the three functions on the exam:

  • Understanding the Municipal Advisor Regulatory Framework
  • Supervising Municipal Advisory Activities
  • Supervising Municipal Advisor Firm Operations

Enrollment is between March 4-15, 2019 via FINRA’s Test Enrollment Services System.  

Anyone who misses the enrollment period might be “left behind” and not be able to join in this historic municipal securities exam pilot mission!

Solomon Exam Prep—a leading publisher of securities exam prep materials—is proud to announce a partnership with Ohio Dominican University. With this partnership, ODU students will get everything needed to pass the all-important SIE exam.

As FINRA’s “introductory” exam, the SIE is used by securities firms to measure the seriousness of job candidates. For years, Solomon’s instructors have helped professionals pass securities exams—and now they’ve drawn on this expertise to create the best possible SIE test-prep materials. Geared to a variety of learning styles, these include:

  • A digital study guide
  • An audiobook
  • Flashcards
  • Free mobile apps
  • An online exam simulator with unlimited quizzes and exams
  • A video lecture with slides and narration
  • Custom study schedules for classes or independent study

Perhaps most importantly, Solomon’s materials are complemented by personalized support. As one student noted, “I didn’t think this kind of customer service and general human kindness existed anymore.” The company’s dedication shows in its consistently high pass rates.

Partner instructors rave about Solomon’s materials as well—especially for featuring:

  • An online interactive admin portal where courses and student progress can be monitored (making “back-end faculty work a breeze,” as UN-Omaha’s Ray LeBlanc recently put it)
  • A curriculum tailored to fit the needs of each school and program
  • No expense to the partnering school beyond the study materials for the students

Contact us at 503.601.0212 to discuss setting up a Solomon partnership for your school—and to join such prestigious institutions as the University of Nebraska-Omaha, Adelphi University, Seton Hall University, and the University of Dallas.

Question

 

 

 

 

 

 

Spock is an adviser who takes great pride in his use of logic when making investment recommendations.  Which of the following investment vehicles would he be least likely to recommend for a client’s IRA?
 
A. Corporate bonds
B. Growth stocks
C. Municipal bonds
D. REITs
 
Answer: C. Having municipals in an IRA is allowed, but it would not be the most logical investment choice.  That is because the tax advantage associated with municipal bonds is wasted in a tax-deferred account like an IRA.
