Quest CE Releases Course on Retail Suitability

MILWAUKEE – Quest CE, premier provider of compliance training and tracking technology solutions, today announced the addition of a new Firm Element course to its e-learning catalog.

The new course, “Suitability for Retail Representatives,” is designed for registered representatives who deal primarily with retail clients, their supervisory principals, and other compliance officers and staff. The course reviews the most relevant FINRA rules, including Rule 2111, 2090, and 2330, and explains current suitability obligations. It then gives an overview of relevant issues that FINRA focuses on when examining member firms, the results of recent exams, and several examples of enforcement actions taken by FINRA in the last quarter of 2019. The course then gives an overview of Regulation Best Interest (Reg BI), and shows how implementation in June of 2020 will change the concept of suitability and introduce a whole new set of regulatory requirements for broker-dealers and their reps.

Course Agenda Includes:

– FINRA Rule 2111 – Suitability
– FINRA Rule 2090 – Know Your Customer
– FINRA Rule 2330 – Member’s Responsibilities Regarding Deferred Variable Annuities
– FINRA Examinations, Findings and Enforcement Actions
