Firms Required to Hyperlink to FINRA’s BrokerCheck Next Year

Posted on December 24th, 2015 at 3:16 PM

From the Desk of Jim Eccleston at Eccleston Law LLC:

In FINRA Regulatory Notice 15-50 issued on December 7th, FINRA announced that the SEC approved amendments to FINRA Rule 2210 (Communications with the Public). The amendment requires that firms include a visible hyperlink to FINRA’s BrokerCheck profile. The hyperlink must be located on the initial webpage that firms intend to be viewed by retail investors and on any other webpages containing the profile of one or more registered representatives who conduct business with retail investors. The amendment will become effective on June 6, 2016.

The rule underscores the growing importance and promotion of FINRA’s BrokerCheck.
