FINRA’s 2015 Priorities Letter – highly sensitive products

According to FINRA’s 2015 Regulatory and Examination Priorities Letter “FINRA examiners will look for concentrated positions in products that are highly sensitive to interest rates—such as long duration fixed income securities, high yield bonds, mortgage-backed securities, or bond funds composed of interest rate-sensitive securities—and test for suitability and adequate disclosures. Examiners may also review firms’ efforts to educate registered representatives and customers about such products”
