BEDMINSTER, N.J., Dec. 27, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Investment Center, Inc. (TIC), an independent broker-dealer for financial services professionals, is proud to announce that its Chief Compliance Officer, Douglas A. Wright, was elected to serve on the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) Regional Committee for the third time.

“I am thrilled to have been elected again to serve as one of the District 9 Representatives. As part of the committee, I will work to provide FINRA member input in its policies and rulemaking considerations, help educate member firms of FINRA’s mission to protect investors and serve on disciplinary panels as needed,” Doug commented. “The regulatory landscape has changed significantly over the last few years with the addition of Regulation Best Interest and the changing DOL rule.
