FINRA Rule 4511

Enhancing Compliance with FINRA Rule 4511

At Loffa, we understand the critical importance of maintaining accurate and accessible financial records. Our Prime Broker Interactive Network (PBIN) is specifically designed to ensure compliance with FINRA Rule 4511, which mandates firms to create and maintain accurate, complete, and accessible books and records.

What is FINRA Rule 4511?

FINRA Rule 4511 requires member firms to make and preserve books, accounts, records, memoranda, and correspondence in conformance with all applicable laws, rules, regulations, and statements of policy promulgated thereunder and with the rules of this and other self-regulatory organizations. Compliance with this rule is crucial not only for regulatory adherence but also for ensuring the integrity and security of financial transactions and client data.
