(b) Notwithstanding (a) of this subsection, the provisions of this subsection (1) are available with respect to securities held for the account of a limited partnership (or limited liability company, or other type of pooled investment vehicle) only if you comply with the requirements in WAC 460-24A-107 (1)(b).
