How do you change the employer for your DSI certification?
When you change employers, that will have an effect on your DSI certification. For example, your new employer is not a DSI participant, so you must go through extra steps to stay certified. The important thing is that you keep your DSI certification up-to-date, and that you communicate any changes to DSI on time. That will give us both enough opportunities to check the changes and guarantee the correctness of your registration in the Public Register.
Anne has worked as a customer consultant at an institutional investment firm for five years. She has been registered in the DSI Institutional Investment Advisor register since 2018. Next month, she will start working in the same position at a new employer. What should Anne do to remain DSI certified in the same register, but with a different employer?
As a sector, we have jointly decided that a DSI registration must be kept up-to-date. That way, everyone can trust that the information in the Public Register is correct. When changes or additions are made to a certification, we check certain criteria by means of a screening procedure conducted by Validata. We do this for every change and/or addition to guarantee the accuracy of the data in the Public Register.
We understand that it may be frustrating to go through the screening process again. After all, you are already listed in the Public Register, and have already completed an exhaustive screening. Nevertheless, every change requires a new check, because other changes may have taken place that we are not aware of. We ask for your patience with this additional screening, so that we can all ensure that every DSI register is kept up-to-date.
