FINRA's Compliance Vendor Directory (CVD) includes tools and services that are provided as a convenience to firms. The CVD displays vendor responses to a comprehensive set of questions about vendor compliance offerings. The information included in the CVD may be used to assist firms as they research potential vendors in support of firm compliance requirements. The information is provided solely as a convenience to firms.

FINRA does not endorse the products listed in the CVD and firms are not obligated to use them. FINRA does not ensure the accuracy or completeness of vendor responses and does not endorse any vendors. FINRA strongly suggests that firms perform their own due diligence—including technical and financial reviews—before making any vendor decisions. The use of these services does not ensure compliance with FINRA rules or other regulations or laws. Vendors may not explicitly state or imply otherwise through any means of communication.
