Why Do Brokers Need to Disclose Outside Businesses?

FINRA Rule 3270 prohibits the outside business activities of registered brokers unless they have approval from their firm.

Firms must consider whether the outside activity will:

  1. Interfere with or compromise the broker’s responsibilities to the brokerage firm.
  2. Be viewed by customers as part of the member firm’s business. Brokerage firms do not want customers to believe brokers are offering securities they have approved when that may not be the case.
