Streamlining the work of disclosure for municipal bond dealers
Muni bond dealers bear a growing burden of disclosure-related regulatory compliance. In previous years when munis 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 required for these efforts can be significant. Furthermore, establishing policies and processes that will stand up to regulatory scrutiny can be challenging. What often results are inefficient patchworks of sources and record-keeping.
