Retail Fixed Income Trading Transactions

Commenting on the proposed FINRA regulation regarding pricing information of retail fixed income trading transactions, Hugh Berkson, Executive Vice-President/President-Elect, PIABA, explains that he supports the transparencies the regulation would require but believes it should extend beyond its current scope. Rather than be limited to 100 bonds or a face value of $100,000 or less, the regulation should apply to all retail fixed income transactions.
