Compliance is Not Optional
The financial services industry is witnessing incredible year to year growth on social media, and in a recent survey, 79% of Financial Advisors said they had successfully acquired new clients through social media. Addressing this heavy usage, FINRA, SEC, FFIEC and FCA regulatory notices concerning web and social media sites like FINRA Rule 17-a3 and 17a-4 explicitly state that firms must retain records of all business-related electronic communications to remain compliant with their regulations. Failure to comply can result in hefty fines, bad publicity, and ultimately loss of business.

“As regulations change, we didn’t want to always feel like we always had to be the ones to be responsible to change as the industry changes. We wanted a solution that would update this as it went. We now have some peace of mind and the ability to sleep at night and not worry that something is going wrong that may put our business in jeopardy.”
