Review of Securities & Commodities Regulation


The final rules rely heavily on the existing recordkeeping and reporting framework for broker-dealers, but with adjustments depending on the type of firm. The author discusses these provisions and then the rules as applied to various activities: record making; record preservation; periodic reporting and annual audit; early warning notification; and security counts. He closes with the provisions for alternative compliance with CFTC rules and substituted compliance for foreign dealers.
