Pursuant to Section 19(b)(1) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (‘‘Act’’) 1 and Rule 19b–4 thereunder,2 notice is hereby given that on September 29, 2021, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Inc. (‘‘FINRA’’) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (‘‘SEC’’ or ‘‘Commission’’) the proposed rule change as described in Items I, II, and III below, which Items have been prepared by FINRA. The Commission is publishing this notice to solicit comments on the proposed rule change from interested persons. jspears on DSK121TN23PROD with NOTICES1 I. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Terms of Substance of the Proposed Rule Change FINRA is proposing to: (1) Amend Rule 2231 (Customer Account Statements) to (a) add new supplementary materials pertaining to compliance with Rule 4311 (Carrying Agreements), the transmission of customer account statements to other persons or entities, the use of electronic media to satisfy delivery obligations, and compliance with Rule 3150 (Holding of Customer Mail); and (b) incorporate without substantive change specified provisions derived from Temporary Dual FINRA–NYSE Rule Interpretation 409T (Statements of Accounts to Customers) pertaining to information disclosed on customer account statements, externally held assets, use of logos and trademarks, and use of summary statements; (2) delete Temporary Dual FINRA–NYSE Rule 409T (Statements of Accounts to Customers) and Temporary Dual FINRA–NYSE Rule Interpretation 1 15 2 17 U.S.C. 78s(b)(1).

The text of the proposed rule change is available on FINRA’s website at https://www.finra.org, at the principal office of FINRA and at the Commission’s Public Reference Room. II. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change In its filing with the Commission, FINRA included statements concerning the purpose of and basis for the proposed rule change and discussed any comments it received on the proposed rule change. The text of these statements may be examined at the places specified in Item IV below. FINRA has prepared summaries, set forth in sections A, B, and C below, of the most significant aspects of such statements. A. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change 1. Purpose Background Rule 2231 and NYSE Rule 409T govern the obligation of members to deliver customer account statements to customers. Specifically, Rule 2231 and NYSE Rule 409T require each ‘‘general 3 As part of the process of completing a consolidated FINRA rulebook, FINRA adopted, without substantive changes, the remaining legacy NASD rules as FINRA rules in the consolidated FINRA rulebook and the remaining Incorporated NYSE Rules and Incorporated NYSE Rule Interpretations in the consolidated FINRA rulebook as a separate Temporary Dual FINRA–NYSE Member Rules Series. These NYSE rules and their corresponding interpretations now bear a ‘‘T’’ modifier after the rule and interpretation number to denote their placement in the Temporary Dual FINRA–NYSE Member Rules Series. The Temporary Dual FINRA–NYSE Member Rules Series apply only to those members of FINRA that are also members of the NYSE (‘‘dual members’’). The FINRA rules apply to all FINRA members, unless such rules have a more limited application by their terms. Among the remaining NASD rules was NASD Rule 2340 (Customer Account Statements), which was adopted, without substantive changes, as FINRA Rule 2231. Incorporated NYSE Rule 409 (Statements of Accounts to Customers) and Incorporated NYSE Rule Interpretation 409 (Statements of Accounts to Customers) were adopted, without substantive changes, under the Temporary Dual FINRA–NYSE Rules Series as Rule 409T and Interpretation 409T, respectively. See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 85589 (April 10, 2019), 84 FR 15646 (April 16, 2019) (Notice of Filing and Immediate Effectiveness of File No. SR–FINRA–2019–009). For convenience, the rules and interpretations under the Temporary Dual FINRA–NYSE Member Rules Series are referred to as ‘‘NYSE Rule’’ and ‘‘NYSE Rule Interpretation,’’ as appropriate. PO 00000 Frm 00075 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 55641 securities member’’ 4 and each member organization carrying customer accounts, respectively, to send account statements to customers at least quarterly showing security and money positions or account activity during the preceding quarter, except if carried on a Delivery versus Payment/Receive versus Payment (‘‘DVP/RVP’’) basis. At the time FINRA adopted Rule 2231, along with NYSE Rule 409T and NYSE Rule Interpretation 409T (together, ‘‘NYSE provisions’’), among others, into the consolidated FINRA rulebook, FINRA noted that it would continue to review the substance of such rules and expected to propose substantive changes to some or all of the rules as part of future rulemakings.5 As part of that effort and as described further below, FINRA is now proposing to amend Rule 2231 that would incorporate several existing provisions from the NYSE provisions. As a result of this proposed harmonization, the NYSE provisions would be deleted in their entirety. Rule 2231 differs from the NYSE provisions in several ways. First, Rule 2231(c) sets forth requirements for disclosure of values for unlisted or illiquid direct participation programs or real estate investment trust securities. Neither NYSE Rule 409T nor NYSE Rule Interpretation 409T have a corresponding provision. Second, the NYSE provisions address the delivery of confirmations, account statements or other communications to third parties subject to specified conditions and exceptions. In addition, NYSE Rule 409T(g) provides that members carrying margin accounts for customers should send duplicate copies of monthly statements of guaranteed accounts to the respective guarantors unless such guarantors have specifically provided in writing that they do not want such statements sent to them. Rule 2231 does not have similar provisions. Third, Rule 2231(d) expressly defines several terms (e.g., ‘‘account activity,’’ ‘‘DVP/RVP account,’’ ‘‘general securities member’’) and Rule 2231(e) provides for exemptive relief from the rule. NYSE Rule 409T expressly defines only one term, ‘‘DVP/ RVP account,’’ and does not provide for exemptive relief from the rule. Finally, unlike Rule 2231, NYSE Rule 4 Rule 2231(d) defines the term ‘‘general securities member’’ to mean ‘‘any member that conducts a general securities business and is required to calculate its net capital pursuant to the provisions of SEA Rule 15c3–1(a). Notwithstanding the foregoing definition, a member that does not carry customer accounts and does not hold customer funds or securities is exempt from the provisions of this section.’’ 5 See supra note 3.
