What the BrokerCheck Ruling Means for Advisors’ Websites

In October 2015, the SEC approved the FINRA Rule 2210, which requires brokerages and individual advisors to include a “readily apparent reference and hyperlink” from their websites to BrokerCheck. By requiring a link to the database where investors can review a registered person’s work history, complaints, and disciplinary records, the SEC explained that the rule is designed to “increase investors’ awareness and use of BrokerCheck.”

These changes must be made on all registered individuals’ websites by June 6, 2016. If you have a website with FMG Suite, you’re in luck because we’re doing the work for you and providing guidance on this new ruling.
