Risk Assessment, Identification and Testing Services

The global regulatory ecosystem has become significantly more dynamic since the financial crisis. Long gone are the routine exams with predictable questions and programs. Therefore, getting a fresh perspective from an experienced third party can be an important risk mitigation tool. DLA can give you that perspective by providing regulatory exam support, targeted regulatory testing and mock SEC and FINRA examinations. Allow DLA to analyze your current compliance program. After testing, we will deliver a detailed report listing your risks and gaps, thereby enabling you to effectively prepare your firm for a regulatory review.

DLA can help your compliance staff with inspections, conduct or assist with annual regulatory reporting requirements such as:

  • Rule 38a-1 report
  • Rule 206(4)-7 review
  • FINRA Rule 3120
