The Corporate Financing Department assists FINRA-regulated firms in complying with FINRA rules and federal securities laws by reviewing documents related to firms' capital-raising activities and arrangements. These services provide protections to investors and issuers by regulating underwriting terms and arrangements and addressing conflicts of interest when underwriters are affiliated with an issuer or receive significant portions of the proceeds in an offering.
Corporate Financing also provides general annual statistics on the number of regulatory filings submitted for issuers accessing the public or private capital markets.
