Course Description

This program was recorded on August 20th, 2019

In July 2007, the National Association Dealers (“NASD”) and the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”), the two main self-regulatory organizations (“SROs”) for the securities industry, were merged to create the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority. (“FINRA”).

FINRA, as both the regulator of broker-dealer firms and registered persons, and the administrator of an arbitration forum which has exclusive jurisdiction, for the most part, over its member firms, registered persons, and investors who open accounts with firms which account agreements contain mandatory arbitration clauses, wields a very large and powerful sword.
