Outsourced FINOP Services

Outsourced FINOP

Get the most out of a required function

Sometimes you just don’t need another full-time employee. Oyster’s experienced, licensed FINOP consultants will prioritize your FOCUS and Net Capital requirement calculations when you need us. When you outsource your FINOP role, you get a team of experienced and Series 27 licensed industry practitioners.

Invested professionals for the long-term

Oyster Consulting will provide broker-dealers with an outsourced FINOP who understands the industry and your firm, but who also has the experience and resources to navigate regulatory nuances and interpretations. Our FINOPs stay current with industry and regulatory changes and have the expertise to ensure compliance with net capital reporting, FOCUS filings, documentation and to provide financial audit support.

Transition support for the short-term

Outsourcing your FINOP role also provides transition support on an interim basis, allowing you time to find the best full-time candidate to replace departing employees.

We assist our clients with long-term solutions and short-term needs so you can spend your valuable time on investments and building client relationships.

The Oyster Difference

Oyster has retained some of the best talent in the industry. Our consultants have experience assisting our clients with a long-term solution, filling a short-term need, or training a newly-registered PFO or POO. We can support the day-to-day operations across your firm, allowing you to spend valuable time investing and communicating with clients. When working with Oyster, you aren’t just working with one consultant, you are working with the entire team, with access to the combined knowledge and skills of our associates.
