Revised FINRA Transaction Fee Transfer Agreement

August 24, 2018

FINRA has revised the FINRA Transaction Fee Transfer Agreement to clarify the intended scope of paragraph 2b.

Firms that currently have an executed Agreement on file with FINRA do not need to execute a new Agreement. Firms executing a new Agreement after the date of this Notice should use the revised version, which is now online at
