FINRA Looks to Tighten Non-Cash Compensation Rules

  • Guesswork. A financial advisor might have qualified for and participated in an asset manager-sponsored education event for Continuing Education credits. However, the advisor’s estimate of value might not align with the dollar amount the asset manager recovered from fund shareholders.
  • Missing Data. A broker-dealer or wealth manager might aggregate all given costs from their advisors, but miss a few of the events because of delayed or omitted reporting.
  • Inaccuracy. When asset managers receive and send broker-dealer expense reports to their operations group for reconciling and data cleansing, inaccuracies can surface.

Discover how a digital portal solution can reconcile workflow and reporting in a timely manner to keep your advisors and product vendors on the same page.
