Suitability is an important subject today driving change in business processing, advisor training, and supervisory review across many firms. The NAIC Suitability in Annuity Transactions Model Regulation is gaining wide adoption across States and FINRA has also expanded their expectations of suitability through rule 2111.
LIMRA provides support, products and services to both distribution and manufacturers through Study Groups, Training & Tracking Systems and Monitoring Systems that ensure that your compliance efforts are working.
Our Suitability Offerings include:
