FINRA Owes America Answers on These Proposals

Posted by Larry Doyle on June 22nd, 2010 1:28 PM |

FINRA can talk about transparency and integrity all it wants. We all know talk is cheap.¬†FINRA’s board and executives need to show America how they truly define and embrace transparency and integrity. How so?

FINRA is scheduled to hold its first Annual Meeting in almost three years on August 2nd. In anticipation of that meeting, FINRA member firm Amerivet Securities has submitted seven proposals to be included in the FINRA proxy materials.

FINRA’s ‘2009 Year in Review’: INCOMPLETE

Posted by Larry Doyle on June 22nd, 2010 10:32 AM |

What good is a 2009 Annual Report released in September 2010?

Picture a student informing his teacher that he has not been able to complete his 75-page year end review, but that he will surely get it done over the summer and “I’ll have it for you when school starts back up in September.” Additionally, the student tries to ingratiate his teacher by submitting a 6-page summary year in review. If this were not so pathetic it may actually be comical, but my friends this is what we are subjected to by the Wall Street self-regulator FINRA. How so?

FINRA Chairman and CEO Rick Ketchum just released a magnanimous 6-page 2009 Year in Review while informing America that the full 2009 FINRA Annual Report will not be released until September.

American citizens and investors are experiencing one of the most dramatic, traumatic, and anxiety-ridden financial and economic period in our nation’s history, and all we get is a 6-page summary.

The FINRA 2009 Year in Review will not take long to critique, but suffice it to say the grade on this review will certainly be “INCOMPLETE.” (more…)
