Rules and Regulation Update: SEC Approves Newest FINRA Proposal

From the Desk of Jim Eccleston at Eccleston Law LLC:

The SEC has approved FINRA’s proposal to adopt the new Rule 3210. The function of this rule will be to consolidate the previous rule that governs accounts opened or established by associated persons at firms other than the firm at which the associated person is employed. The intention is for Rule 3210 to help enable effective oversight of that type of account. The proposal was accepted on June 30th, and the new rule will take effect on April 3rd, 2017.
