New FINRA Rule 5123 Takes Effect Requiring Notice of Private Placements by Member Firms

The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority has adopted new Rule 5123 requiring members to file notice of their participation in private placements. The Rule took effect on December 3rd 2012. The new rule does not contain a definition of “private placements” and accordingly is presumed to cover all private placements including those involving general solicitation and advertising under the new Rule 506(c) created by the JOBS Act.
