DPC DATA solutions streamline the work of disclosure for municipal bond dealers

Municipal dealers bear an ever-broadening burden of disclosure-related regulatory compliance. In previous years when municipal bonds were regarded as predictably safe, mere access to officially filed disclosures was the standard. Today, FINRA guidance on MSRB Rule G-17 requires dealers to discover and analyze not just official filings, but any relevant publicly available information.

The time and costs related to these efforts can be significant, as can be the operational impact of establishing policies and processes that will stand up to regulatory scrutiny. The results can be inefficient patchworks of sources and record-keeping.

As the premier provider of disclosure documents and information for two decades, DPC DATA has designed its solutions to address the exact disclosure challenges faced by dealers.
