The Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board, or MSRB, published its first Compliance Advisory for Municipal Advisors, developed to assist municipal advisors with understanding and implementing the regulatory framework created by the MSRB as a result of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.
The new compliance advisory highlights fundamental regulatory requirements for municipal advisors as developed by the MSRB and identifies potential risks associated with a failure to implement adequate compliance controls. The advisory does not include all municipal market risks and is not intended to address all the requirements of each MSRB rule or other federal securities laws applicable to municipal advisors.
