Registering Securities 2


Registering Securities


  • It is unlawful to offer to sell or sell any security in Colorado unless it is registered or unless the security or transaction is exempted under provisions in the Colorado Securities Act. Registrations may be filed by the issuer, any other person on whose behalf the offering is to be made, or a licensed broker-dealer. 11-51-301(1), C.R.S.
  • Because registration requirements differ between the state and federal levels, the Division recommends that anyone who wishes to raise money through securities offerings visit the Securities and Exchange Commission website for federal rules and guidelines.
