FINRA, NASSA, SEC, MSRB, etc…an alphabet soup of regulators want to eat your lunch!

2016 is shaping up to be a big year for the regulators. And they all want a piece of you.

So when the regulators call, will you be ready?

It seems as though every regulatory body — from the Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board (MSRB) to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) to the Security and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the North American Securities Administrators Association (NASAA), and others, is pulling out the regulatory compliance stops to keep the world safe from a few bad actors.

What does that increased oversight mean for you?

It’s pretty obvious.

More work.

More oversight.

More delivering information on demand to the regulator de jour.

How will you keep track of it all?

If you’re like most of Chief Compliance Officers, you and your compliance team are pretty busy juggling a mismatched jigsaw puzzle of compliance systems. One to archive your data, one to track your electronic communications, another to monitor your branches…Are you tired yet?

You should be. It takes only one dropped ball or one misreported item to generate really BIG trouble, to the tune of hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines and penalties. Not to mention the time you and your compliance team lose tracking down minutia.
