SIFMA Submits Comment Letter to FINRA Regarding FINRA's CARDS Rule Proposal

SIFMA provides comments to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) in response to FINRA's requests for comment on a rule proposal to implement the Comprehensive Automated Risk Data System (CARDS).

SIFMA believes that FINRA’s CARDS proposal would impose undue costs and burdens on the member firms, and is an attempt to diagnose a regulatory ill without appropriately accounting for the impact on investor privacy and civil liberties, and should not be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
