What is the SIE Exam and why do I need to take it?

The SIE is the Securities Industry Essentials Exam. FINRA introduced this new requirement on October 1, 2018. The SIE now acts as an entry point into the securities industry. It is required for anyone who does not hold a representative license. The SIE covers the essentials a candidate will need to begin a career in the securities industry. In addition to the SIE, you will also need to take a Top-Off Exam to be considered fully licensed.  See our full page of SIE FAQ’s for more details.
