Regulatory Response

Understanding how regulators use information, what they expect and the best way to interact with them can be a vital skill when it comes to responding to a regulatory inquiry.

Oyster’s experts have years of experience with FINRA and SEC regulators from all over the country. Our employees are former regulators themselves, compliance officers and C-Suite executives that have addressed an array of regulatory challenges.

When regulators come to your office to conduct an examination, our powerful team can support your compliance department. If you have had an exam that produced findings our team will work with you to remediate the findings and provide industry best practices.

Exam support and response are included in Oyster’s outsourced CCO services.
