Section 8-6-178

Access to and availability of records.

A broker-dealer or investment adviser shall provide access to or copies of records that are relevant to the suspected or attempted financial exploitation of a vulnerable adult to agencies charged with administering state adult protective services laws and to law enforcement, either as part of a referral to the agency or to law enforcement, or upon request of the agency or law enforcement pursuant to an investigation. The records may include historical records as well as records relating to the most recent transaction or transactions that may comprise financial exploitation of a vulnerable adult. All records made available to agencies under this section are not a public record as defined in any state public records law. Nothing in this section shall limit or otherwise impede the authority of the commission to access or examine the books and records of broker-dealers and investment advisers as otherwise provided by law.
