Why Should You Hire an SDDco Compliance Consultant for Ongoing Compliance Support?
We are experienced in providing ongoing support to broker-dealers of many stripes and sizes and our services are highly specialized. Our consulting team understands the business implications of complying with industry rules. We use that lens to determine the best advice for our client partners on how to remain compliant. SDDco-RS offers a suite of compliance services on a retainer or project basis which always encourages frequent communication with our clients.
Why Should You Hire an SDDco Compliance Consultant for FINRA Membership Applications?
FINRA New Membership Application (NMA) requirements are extensive and exacting. SDDco Regulatory Services shepherds the entire process.
