On July 31, 2013, the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") adopted two new sets of rules that, taken together, tighten the controls required for broker-dealers holding customer funds and securities. The new rules amend (1) various financial responsibility requirements for broker-dealers (the "financial responsibility requirements") and (2) several reporting and audit rules for broker-dealers and their auditors (the "custody-related requirements"). While most of the amendments impact those broker-dealer firms that carry customer accounts or provide clearing services, all broker-dealers will be required to submit new reports to the SEC in 2014.
