FINRA by the Numbers

The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority released its 2013 annual report on Friday, outlining its financials, operations and regulatory accomplishments in the past year.

Financially, 2013 was a solid financial year for FINRA, with the industry regulator increasing its revenues by 2.5 percent from 2012. Given its performance, FINRA’s Board approved a one-time discretionary rebate of $20 million, which translated to a $1,200 rebate on the annual minimum gross income assessment fee for all firms in good standing.

FINRA also continued to focus on risk-based examinations in an effort to prevent fraud and protect investors. Last year FINRA ordered firms to pay more than $9.5 million in restitution and as of June, the regulator has ordered firms to repay more than $26 million.
