How to Work With FINRA Data

Our goal in creating FINRA Data is to make it easier to discover and interact with the variety of data FINRA makes available to investors, financial professionals, firms, media, and academics. Browse available data sets by access type, category, and fee structure. Details on data licensing, access, format, and sources can be found on the individual data pages.

Access Type

  • Public FINRA publishes industry data, often in aggregate, in support of market transparency and investor education. Access to certain data sets require you to sign a user agreement with FINRA and many are immediately accessible. 

  • Firm FINRA publishes data, such as industry report cards, for firms. Access to firm data is controlled exclusively by the firm. Contact the account administrator at your firm to request access to firm data.  

  • Financial Professional Financial Professionals can access details about their professional records through FinPro. Identity verification based on the individual credit history is required to access FinPro.
