Connect & Collaborate
about the SEC's Form CRS & Reg BI
What is it?
Our second collaborative conference call regarding Form CRS and Reg BI. We had a helpful discussion on January 9 and February 4. The Group will have another call in the near future. That date will be posted here when available.
When is the Call?
The Date is being determined, but the time will be: 3:00 PM EST / 2:00 CST / 11:00 PST
What is the Focus?
Follow up for the Discussion from January 9
We gave an update of Techmate's experience thus far with Reg BI and Form CRS. Clarifying questions were asked and discussion ensued. The Primary Focus is reviving the DOL commission recalculations for possible use to help address Conflicts of Interest involving Rep Compensation.
Follow up for the Discussion from February 4
Our goal was to determine what Techmate can build into WinOps to assist with Reg BI Compliance. We worked through a number of the items on FINRA's BI checklist. How to avoid unknowingly committing to monitoring when that isn't the intent was discussed. Further discussion came on reasonable alternatives to recommendations. A system for tracking CRS Versions and delivery dates would be useful, especially to prospects before account paperwork systems are engaged. Is there value in having risk metrics tools engaged in WinOPS? Much discussion but no strong conclusion was reached.
Is there an Agenda for the Meeting?
We are working on an agenda. We understand the mitigating conflicts of interest to be a major concern for BDs to comply with Reg BI. However, there may be other items of concern as well. If you have clarity on these items that you can share with us in advance, we would appreciate you sending it to us.
