The value of precision in compliance
“The two key principles of the framework (that you noted on the outset), impact the overall exam process. Right? So one is, I think the NSC framework does a really good job of emphasizing, taking a holistic approach to looking at the compliance program, and the culture within the firm, overall. And then two, doing so earlier in the regulatory exam or the enforcement of the investigative process.” – Carlo di Florio
“We hope that FINRA and the SCC (and other regulators) might be able to use this Framework as a solid foundation by which to conduct parts of their investigation processes. But then again, another benefit would be for a persons (like yourself and others) that might be thinking about how to defend against an enforcement action, just to be able to show that there were other mitigating circumstances involved.” – Patrick Hayes
