Compliance for Broker-Dealers

Intuitive workflows and archiving features

The Advisor Websites platform’s Compliance Dashboard empowers your compliance department with the tools needed to approve, moderate or reject content for each representative’s website. Our user-friendly interface makes it easy for your team to communicate with the representatives and with each other; streamlines the moderation process by showing color-coded before and after edits states; allows for disclosures to be automatically inserted; helps control your corporate brand identity for unbranded representatives; and finally archives every single notes, edits and updates for future reference.

Intuitive dashboards

We provide an easy-to-use compliance dashboard that is accessible at any time. In addition, each Financial Advisor (FA) has their own “advisor dashboard” to allow for easy management of all website features at any time. The compliance dashboard and each website comes with a simple and intuitive content editor that can be used by FAs to make updates during the moderation process.

Workflow and processes associated with our services

The websites and the content created by FAs will go through a moderation workflow (see below). Moderation can be performed my multiple reviewers such as compliance, advertising review, etc.

  1. When the FA is ready, they submit their website for moderation through the advisor dashboard.
  2. Moderators will review the submission and can edit, approve, reject, assign to other approval team members, or send back to the advisor for revisions.
  3. Once approved, updates are automatically published.
  4. All content approvals, compliance notes and versions of the websites are permanently archived and retrievable online at any time.

Data security

There are three levels of security risks posed by web services which we address:

  1. Physical security: Our servers are stored in a co-location facility which has 24/7/365 security staff. Physical server access is monitored using access cards and digital video recording.
  2. System security: Our servers run up-to-date versions of industry-standard open-source software. By using open-source software, we have access to a large community of professionals who we can continually be working with to improve the software we use. This software is monitored regularly by our staff for new security bulletins and updated accordingly.
  3. Web security: Our services protect your user’s personal information by enabling SSL connections for sensitive data. The web content management system provides password-protected access to the web-accessible administration features. The content management system receives regular security updates to resolve any discovered vulnerabilities.
