A-2-Z Associates advertises itself as a full service brokerage firm that will buy and sell securities for its
clients, as well as provide investment advice to them. Its brochure provides a variety of plans to which a
client can subscribe. The basic plan is the cheapest and allows the client a maximum number of trades
per month for a specified fee. Another, slightly more expensive, plan provides the client with the same
maximum number of trades per month, but the client also receives a personalized quarterly review of his
portfolio along with advice for restructuring his portfolio based on such factors as current market
conditions and specific industry or company information. The most expensive plan is one in which the
client is assigned to an individual portfolio manager, who will take total responsibility for the asset
allocation of the client's portfolio and will provide the client with monthly reports. Based on the services
A-2-Z provides, it must register with the state as:
A. an investment adviser representative.
B. a broker-dealer.
C. an investment adviser.
D. both a broker-dealer and an investment adviser.
