I'm a registered investment advisor and have written a book that I would like to market to my clients and prospective clients. The book includes a description of my own portfolio to demonstrate how I managed my own account and weathered the worst of the market turmoil over the last three years. I've been told that doing so could run afoul of the advertising regulations of the Investment Advisers Act of 1940. I'd like to know your opinion.
