We are pleased to announce that we have undergone a Statement of Standards for Attestation (SSAE) No. 18 Organization Controls (“SOC”) 1SM exam and received a clear opinion resulting in a report stating that SGA maintained effective controls over all aspects of its investment systems. The engagement was performed by Wolf & Company, P.C. SSAE 18 SOC 1SM is an internationally recognized auditing standard developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). A SSAE 18 SOC 1 SM audit is widely recognized because it represents that a service organization has been through an independent audit of its controls activities. SSAE 18 supersedes the SAS 70 audit standard, and is designated by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) as an acceptable method for management to obtain assertions about a service organization’s internal controls without conducting separate assessments. Please let us know if you would like to receive a full copy of the report.
