Three sample questions:
First State Bank serves as trustee of the Milton Family Trust. As trustee, First State Bank has received information as to ownership of securities and would like to use this information to solicit purchases. Based on FINRA Rule 2060, which of the following is most accurate regarding First State Bank’s ability to use this information?
A. Because First State Bank serves as trustee, they are entitled to use this information to solicit purchases, sales or exchanges
B. Because First State Bank serves as trustee, they are never permitted to use this information to solicit purchases, sales or exchanges
C. Because First State Bank serves as trustee, they are not permitted to use this information to solicit purchases, sales or exchanges except at the request and on behalf of the issuer
D. Because a financial institution is the trustee, First State Bank does not serve a fiduciary role and may use this information to solicit purchases, sales or exchanges
Correct Answer: C
Why: FINRA Rule 2060 states that information obtained through a fiduciary capacity may not be used to solicit purchases, sales or exchanges except at the request and on behalf of the issuer. As trustee, First State Bank is considered a fiduciary and such rule is applicable. Other fiduciary roles this rule applies to include paying agent, transfer agent, and others who operate in a similar fiduciary capacity.
All of the following statements regarding an investment company are considered misleading except which of the following?
A. XYZ company has outperformed the S&P Index for the past 10 years
B. XYZ has the most effective and experienced management company in the state
C. On average, XYZ clients experience a 5% greater return than the average return for clients at ABC company
D. XYZ is the oldest investment company in the state
Correct Answer: D
Why: If accurate, stating that XYZ is the oldest investment company in the state is not a misleading statement regarding the characteristics of the investment company. All of the other statements are considered misleading because they either exaggerate claims about management skills, or give performance data which is not properly warranted or explained.
You have a brokerage account with a broker-dealer fully insured by SIPC containing securities worth $375,000 and $150,000 in cash. The broker-dealer suddenly seeks bankruptcy protection. How big of a check do you receive from the SIPC?
Correct Answer: B
Why: Your account holdings are insured up to a maximum of $500,000, of which no more than $100,000 can be in cash. You would receive $375,000 for your securities and $100,000 for the cash in your account, and would then be a general creditor of the firm for the remaining $50,000.
