Financial Services Firms provide financial planning, money management and investment advice. Because people rely heavily on the advice of financial services professionals, firms are required to be licensed at both federal and state levels. Of course, local businesses licenses are usually required as well.
The Golden State’s capitol is surprisingly thin on local regulation and licensing requirements. Sacramento largely defers to the rules of the resident state government. However, the County of Sacramento has a number of clear and strict policies regarding public health and the environment. Additionally, both local governments make paperwork clear, straightforward and easy. In a city literally filled with bureaucracy, residents can enjoy some streamlined government. Besides providing government to California, Sacramento is home to the agriculture and aerospace industries and houses several significant companies: Sutter Health, Blue Diamond Growers, Aerojet, Teichert, and The McClatchy Company.
