Any work that it does in the municipal finance arena must be in compliance with rules of the MSRB. This web site does not contain any testimonials that refer to transactions that closed where Cedar served as a municipal advisor.
In addition, Karen Kassouf of Cedar Ventures, has been for the last 16 years, a registered representative with a broker-dealer that is regulated by FINRA. While she was a registered representative, Ms. Kassouf could only transact business in those states in which such broker-dealer and she were registered, or where they qualified for an exemption or exclusion from registration requirements. As of June, 2022, Ms. Kassouf is no longer associated with a broker dealer but she plans on maintaining qualifications for reregistration through FINRA’s MQP program.
