The ability of small and large businesses to raise capital efficiently is critical to job creation and economic growth. Broker-dealers play a vital role in helping businesses raise capital through the securities markets, and as a self-regulatory organization (SRO) for broker-dealers, FINRA has a variety of rules, operations and administrative processes that address their capitalraising activities.
FINRA recently announced a new initiative—called FINRA360—to evaluate various aspects of its operations and programs to identify opportunities to more effectively further its mission. As part of this initiative, FINRA is requesting comment on the effectiveness and efficiency of its rules, operations and administrative processes governing broker-dealer activities related to the capital-raising process and their impact on capital formation.
