The Division of Securities is also referred to as the Registration Division. The division ensures that investment products sold in Minnesota meet minimum standards of fairness and disclosure.
The division reviews registration applications for common stock, limited partnerships, preferred stock, bonds and other debt securities, corporate takeovers, subdivided land and camping memberships, and franchises.
Registration does not constitute approval or endorsement by the Commissioner or that the information provided to the department is true, complete and not misleading.
