2019 FINRA Conference Delivers Across the Board!
Word on the street was that the annual FINRA conference held in Washington DC had been developing into a top notch industry event over the past few years. The word is absolutely correct! As a first time attendee, our President and CEO, John Foster, reported that the conference was exceptionally well done.
The highlight was actually the content of the programs. FINRA covered multiple hot topics and made key staff very accessible for one-on-one interactions. The tracks on anti-money laundering and specific FINRA compliance related topics were quite informative. Although the conference was certainly attended by more introducing brokers than clearing brokers, there were some surprisingly large firms represented.
But the most enjoyable part of the conference was that the attendees were all prone to participate in interactive networking. It proved to be a great venue to catch up with old friends and share a drink with new ones. Hats off to FINRA! We look forward to next year.
