Achieve Supervisory Control Compliance

You understand the importance of mitigating risks for your firm. Broker-dealer supervisory controls are a top priority for FINRA examinations.

Your broker-dealer must have written supervisory procedures and systems reasonably designed to achieve compliance with applicable securities laws and regulations.

Having an outside resource test your controls can provide a fresh perspective. Oyster consultants have experience ensuring compliance with FINRA rule 3120 and FINRA rule 3130. We will identify gaps in your supervisory procedures and address compliance deficiencies.

Regulatory Background

Broker-dealers must follow FINRA Rule 3120. This rule mandates firms to establish, maintain, and enforce policies and procedures. These policies and procedures ensure supervisory controls are in place.

The FINRA 3130 Rule requires the assigned Principal or Principals to submit an annual report to the CEO.

This report should detail how FINRA members supervise their controls and summarize the test results. It should also highlight any important exceptions that were found. Additionally, the report should outline any new procedures that were implemented in response to the test results.
