FINRA Manages to Attain Positive Net Income in 2016 Due to Increased Fines

From the Desk of Jim Eccleston at Eccleston Law LLC:

According to FINRA’s annual financial report, the SRO’s increase in fines in 2016 allowed for it to attain a positive net income. Moreover, even though FINRA saw a drop in operating revenues from $898.7 million in 2015 to $844.6 million in 2016, it increased fines from $93.8 million in 2015 to $173.8 million in 2016.

The large increase in fines in 2016 can be attributed to the reason why FINRA achieved $57.7 million in overall net income in 2016, after losing $39.5 million in 2015.
