Simple to set-up and easy to use

The tracking of employee transactions and holdings is a key regulator focus area that if done manually is a time-consuming and high-risk task. The SEC’s Rule 204a-1 or the “Code of Ethics”, requires all persons of a registered investment advisor firm to submit securities holdings and transaction reports to the firm's Chief Compliance Officer or other designated person(s). Firms need to carefully manage their employees' transactions and holdings to mitigate risk and remain compliant. 


Does the system create access person holdings and transactions reports?

Yes, the tool is designed to help a firm meet its Rule 204A-1 ("Code of Ethics Rule") requirements as it relates personal securities trading. The Code of Ethics rule requires all access persons of an RIA firm to submit securities holdings and transaction reports to the firm's Chief Compliance Officer ("CCO") or other designated person(s). The system automatically creates holdings and transactions reports which are then reviewed and attested to by the firm's access persons prior to submission.

The Employee Trade Monitoring solution was created for both state and SEC registered RIA firms.

MyRIACompliance users will benefit from the integration capabilities, which enable CCO’s to oversee their employees progress as they submit and attest to their reports. CCO’s can also remind their employees to complete attestations through MyRIACompliance. 

With an intuitive and user-friendly interface, this solution is designed for both the tech-savvy and those used to paper driven processes.

Does the system allow the Chief Compliance Officer to manage a restricted securities list?

Yes, the restricted securities list is fully customizable for firms that implement a trade pre-clearance program. When implemented, each access person submits a trade request which is then automatically approved or held for approval based on the firm's settings. In addition, any security purchased or sold by an access person that is listed on the firm's restricted security list is flagged by the system for further review. All historical restricted securities are archived.
