FINRA to Create a New Centralized Enforcement Office

From the Desk of Jim Eccleston at Eccleston Law LLC:

FINRA has created a new centralized enforcement office which will merge the office which handles disciplinary actions with another office that covers a broad swath of regulatory oversight cases, from corporate finance to fraud detection.

The creation of the new enforcement office is the latest move by FINRA in accomplishing its goal of creating a uniform approach to charging and sanctioning its members and associated persons, and in turn better target developing issues that could harm investors.

FINRA has selected Susan Schroeder, formerly its Deputy Chief of Enforcement, to head the new office.
