Enhancing Collaboration with Compliance: Practical Steps for Success – Part Two 

In the first part of this blog series, we discussed the importance of building trust with your compliance team and how a positive relationship can significantly benefit your marketing operations within alternative investment firms. Part Two focuses on actionable strategies to streamline the compliance review process and how Marketing Intent can support in strengthening this crucial partnership. 

Making Compliance’s Job Easier 

A smooth compliance process is beneficial for all parties involved. Here are some practical steps to ensure your marketing materials are prepared in a way that facilitates a more efficient review by compliance: 

  1. Organize and Highlight Changes – Ensure that any submission to compliance is well-organized and clearly highlights changes from previous versions. This practice demonstrates your attention to detail and respect for the compliance team’s time, making the review process faster and more efficient. 
  1. Provide Sources and Justifications – Backing up claims and statistics with credible sources and justifications is essential. This not only strengthens your materials from a compliance perspective but also from an investor’s standpoint. Showing that you’re thorough in your due diligence reflects well on your firm’s commitment to transparency and accuracy. 
  1. Adhere to Guidelines – Familiarize yourself with regulatory guidelines and ensure your materials are in compliance before submission. This proactive approach reduces the likelihood of significant revisions and demonstrates your commitment to maintaining high standards of compliance. 
  1. Communicate Clearly and Regularly – Open lines of communication with your compliance team can significantly enhance the review process. Regular updates and discussions about upcoming marketing initiatives can help compliance understand your timelines and priorities, enabling them to allocate resources more effectively. 

Navigating Regulatory Bodies 

The process doesn’t stop with internal compliance teams. When dealing with regulatory bodies like FINRA or the SEC, the clarity and compliance of your submissions are equally critical. Materials that are poorly organized or fail to meet standards are likely to face delays. Here, the same principles of clarity, organization, and adherence to guidelines apply. Demonstrating a high level of professionalism and compliance readiness can make a significant difference in how regulatory reviewers prioritize your submissions.
