Understanding a FINRA Exam, Part 3- Dispositions

In this third installment of our video blog series, attorney Joel Beck discusses the three common ways that a FINRA exam gets resolved, either through the exam being filed without action, resolved through an informal action, or resolved through a formal disciplinary action against the registered representative or associated person.

To learn more about how FINRA examinations start or how the exams are conducted, be sure to view our other videos in this series. The next video in the series will address the basics of an AWC (Letter of Acceptance, Waiver and Consent).
