This training on FINRA rules and regulations highlights the requirements for retail and limited purpose broker-dealers to maintain an effective supervisory system that is reasonably designed to achieve compliance with NASD Rule 3010.

Why Should You Attend:

In the past year, several major brokerage institutions have been fined by FINRA for have inadequate supervisory policies and procedures in place to supervise the activities of registered persons that conduct business on behalf of their firms and their clients. The violations noted include such areas as qualification of registered employees, sales practices, email retention and review, transaction review and inadequate oversight of business activities in branch locations. Supervisory personnel are not only tasked with supporting their firms’ productivity goals; they are also responsible for fully understanding the activities of the registered persons they supervise and identifying issues before they become rule violations.

This webinar highlights what member firms’ supervisory personnel should generally be aware of when overseeing the business activities of the registered employees. (Many of these areas can be sub-categorized into specific training modules.) The supervisory elements outlined in this course are based on NASD Rule 3010 and related notices, best industry practice and supervisory experience. This webinar will discuss several major elements of the supervisory system: written supervisory procedures, internal inspections, supervision of registered representatives, review and retention of correspondence, qualification and registration of representatives and the key requirements within each of them.

The instructor will also examine significant regulatory and disciplinary actions to demonstrate how a reasonable and sound supervisory program, tailored to the needs of the firm’s business, can prevent supervisory failures.

Topic Background:

NASD Rule 3010 mandates that “each member shall establish and maintain a system to supervise the activities of each registered representative, registered principal, and other associated person that is reasonably designed to achieve compliance with applicable securities laws and regulations, and with applicable NASD Rules”. This rule in part lays the foundation for oversight of a member firm’s business activities and aids compliance with additional rules that govern business conduct. If the supervisory system is appropriately tailored to the firm’s business and risk model and effectively implemented, it can help facilitate compliance and enable the business to succeed. However, inadequate supervision of its business practices can place a firm at risk for not only regulatory violations but also jeopardize its relationships with its clients.

In recent years, FINRA has issued guidance in the form of Notices to Members and its annual Examination Priorities letter as part of its continuing effort to provide member firms, particularly smaller firms, with guidance on complying with the rules that govern their conduct. However, recent FINRA disciplinary actions concerning violations of Rule 3010 have resulted not only in fines to member firms, but also fines and/or suspensions levied against the registered persons who committed the violations and their supervisory principals. Because business and regulatory environments are fluid, it is necessary to insure that adequate supervision is given high priority in a firm’s governance.
