Series 7 Transferable across States?
Mar 20, 2009 2:46 pm
Hi,I'm just wondering if I get sponsored for my Series 7 by a firm in TX, and then takes it within the state of TX, and would it transfer over if I go to work at another state ? or do I need to take it again with a new firm at a different state. I always assumed it did tranfer over. But, I was informed otherwise at a interview. Which it is still very hard to believe since the exam will be the same etc etc. Also, is there a time requirement involved in being employed by a firm before you transfer to a new state, new firm for the 7 to transfer over. Thanks for any help.
The 7 is issued by federal regulatory agencies, not state. It shouldn’t matter.
Yeah, but your registration with FINRA is not transferable. You must withdraw and re-apply with the new firm.
