If you’re a newly promoted principal at your firm, FINRA may have just delivered you some good news.
In response to current events, FINRA has adopted a temporary rule change giving many new principals until December 31st to complete their FINRA exams.
To qualify for the extension, the principal must have been promoted from representative by her firm before September 3rd.
Among the principals included in the extension are General Securities Principals (Series 24), Financial and Operations Principals (Series 27 or 28), Investment Company/Variable Contract Limited Principals (Series 26), and Compliance Officers (Series 14).
The extension also applies to one rep-level license. Operations Professionals (Series 99) hired before September 3rd also have until December 31st to pass their exams.
