3215. Updating client accounts

Or jump to a Series:

    1. A Dealer Member must ensure that the Registered Representative, Portfolio Manager or Associate Portfolio Manager assigned to the account, updates the account information on a timely basis, to reflect any material changes to client information. 
    2. The Dealer Member’s policies and procedures must specifically address that any material changes to client information are approved in the same manner that an account application is approved for a new account.
    3. If a client’s Registered Representative, Portfolio Manager or Associate Portfolio Manager changes, the Dealer Member’s procedures must require that:
      1. the new Registered Representative, Portfolio Manager or Associate Portfolio Manager verify the client information in the account application with the client as soon as practicable to ensure the information is correct, and
      2. the new Registered Representative, Portfolio Manager or Associate Portfolio Manager and the designated Supervisor acknowledge, in writing, that the account application was reviewed and, if necessary, updated. 
    4. If the client’s account application was approved within the past two years, the Dealer Member may use a copy of a client’s current account application, but must have the Registered Representative, Portfolio Manager or Associate Portfolio Manager and their Supervisor initial any changes.
    5. The Dealer Member must restrict the access of Registered Representatives, Portfolio Managers and Associate Portfolio Managers and other persons to its systems in such a manner so as to ensure that material client information cannot be changed without the required approval.
