Managed by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), a not-for-profit entity that regulates the securities industry through congressional authority, the Series 7 license is one of many certifications maintained by FINRA. Designed to ensure competency in those who are working in the securities industry, the Series 7 is awarded after successful completion of a General Securities Representative Examination (GS).

The exam addresses competency in areas including the sale of many different types of securities. These include municipal, corporate, governmental, and investment company securities in addition to options and direct-participation programs.
