Structured Thoughts - Volume 1, Issue 17 - December 2010


In this issue: A Summary of FWP Filing Requirements Under SEC and FINRA Rules; SEC Proposes to Extend Effectiveness of Rule 206(3)-3T.

Introduction: In October 2010, FINRA released its Regulatory Notice 10-52. Notice 10-52, among other things, applies FINRA’s filing and related requirements set forth in NASD Rule 2210 to broadly disseminated FWPs used by broker-dealers.

These rules frequently come into play in connection with FWPs prepared for different types of structured products.
