Xchange for Distributors
Representatives will appreciate the efficiency of the contracting, licensing and registration processes within Xchange. The minimum data collection, accuracy of the requirements and efficient methods of supporting ongoing compliance are invaluable tools to representatives. Rep data entry is simplified by acquiring all existing information from FINRA and the PDB and reusing it where possible. Using customer defined workflows, proper approvals are acquired from supervisors prior to submission to FINRA. PDB data highlights active insurance licenses and auto-triggers appointment requests with carriers via DTCC.
