FINRA Rule 2273 becomes effective in November 11, 2016. The rule requires that broker-dealers provide an Educational Communication Related to Recruitment Practices and Account Transfers when a financial advisor seeks to solicit former clients from another firm to transfer their accounts to the new firm, and even in situations where there is no solicitation. The guidance on FINRA Rule 2273 requires that the educational communication be delivered at certain times depending on manner and timing of contact.
Why Should You Attend
The educational communication, developed by FINRA requirements of Rule 2273, highlights issues for an investor to consider when evaluating whether to transfer accounts/assets to another firm, and may raise questions to be addressed by the financial advisor. Financial advisors and firm management should be prepared to address common questions that may arise from this communication.
