Series 6 Exam Guide

The Investment Company and Variable Contracts Products Representative Qualification Examination (IR), also known as the Series 6 exam, measures the degree to which each candidate possesses the knowledge needed to perform the critical functions of an investment company and variable contract products representative, including sales of mutual funds and variable annuities.

The Series 6 exam consists of 100 scored questions and an additional five unscored pretest questions. Candidates are given two hours and 15 minutes (135 minutes) to complete the exam. The passing score is 70 percent.

There are four main job functions of a Series 6 representative:
– Function 1: Regulatory fundamentals and business development
– Function 2: Evaluate customers’ financial information, identify investment objectives, provide information on investment products, and make suitable recommendations
– Function 3: Open, maintain, transfer and close accounts, and retain appropriate account records
– Function 4: Obtain, verify and confirm customer purchase and sale instructions

Pocket Prep’s Series 6 exam prep app breaks down the content into five knowledge areas:
– Evaluation of Customers
– Investment Company Securities and Variable Contracts
– Marketing, Prospecting and Sales Presentations
– Opening and Servicing Customer Accounts
– Securities and Tax Regulation
