It was a pleasure to attend and exhibit at the 2016 FINRA Annual Conference in Washington D.C. this year. Chairman Richard G. Ketchum delivered an excellent address at the opening of this conference. He reiterated that high ethical standards are critical to maintaining investors’ trust in the financial markets and in the professionals and firms with which they work.
He pointed out that FINRA’s reviews and focuses cover a number of factors, including how a firm communicates and reinforces values directly, implicitly and through its reward system. FINRA also is interested in how a firm measures compliance with its cultural values; what metrics, if any, it uses; and how it monitors for implementation and consistent application of those values throughout its organization.
Chairman Richard G. Ketchum went on to say that “FINRA will assess whether control functions are valued within the organization; whether the organization proactively seeks to identify risk and compliance events.”
