Board of Governors Authorizes FINRA To File Recruitment Compensation Proposal With SEC
- Created: Thursday, 10 October 2013 09:50
The proposal contains two components, according to a FINRA press release: a disclosure obligation and reporting to FINRA. The disclosure requirement would apply to recruitment compensation – including signing bonuses, up-front or back-end bonuses, loans, accelerated payouts, and transition assistance – of $100,000 or more, and to future payments (trade-based or asset-based) contingent on performance criteria. Firms would be required to disclose to their customers the compensation paid to the transferring representative in ranges. The first range would be $100,000 to $500,000; the next would be $500,000 to $1 million; followed by increasingly larger bands.
